MIAMI (AP) — Receiver Albert Wilson has been placed on injured reserve by the Miami Dolphins because of a hip injury suffered in Sunday's loss to Detroit.
Receiver Leonte Carroo was promoted from the practice squad to the active roster in advance of Miami's game at Houston on Thursday night.
DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Miami Dolphins tight end A.J. Derby and defensive end Andre Branch have been ruled out of Sunday's game at New England.
Derby suffered a foot injury in last week's win over Oakland, and Branch hurt his knee. Derby's injury means more playing time for rookie Mike Gesicki.
Reserve linebacker Chase Allen was also ruled out because of a foot injury.
DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Miami Dolphins starting tight end MarQueis Gray has been placed on injured reserve after tearing his Achilles tendon, and the team says he'll miss the entire season.
The Dolphins signed tight end Gavin Escobar, who played in 64 games for the Dallas Cowboys in 2013-16.
Gray played in every game the past two years. His injury likely means a bigger role for rookie tight end Mike Gesicki, a second-round pick.

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — The Miami Dolphins concede that Penn State tight end Mike Gesicki could block better. They drafted him anyway, which shows how much they like his pass-catching skills.
Gesicki was a second-round selection Friday in the Dolphins' latest attempt to fill a position that has been problematic since Adam Gase became coach two years ago.
The 6-foot-5 Gesicki was the second tight end drafted because his athleticism, including thunderous dunks in basketball and success in volleyball.
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Trace McSorley holds numerous Penn State passing records and will have more chances to add to his legacy with co-stars Saquon Barkley and Mike Gesicki gone.
But finding go-to teammates that can replace Barkley's and Gesicki's production — nearly 40 percent of the offense since 2015 — didn't top McSorley's priority list during spring practice. Instead, he spent the last month reminding his teammates on the offensive side of the ball that they still have plenty to prove.
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Long after their teammates had left Penn State's practice field Wednesday night, DaeSean Hamilton, Juwan Johnson and Mike Gesicki trotted to midfield to play catch.
For Hamilton and Gesicki, Penn State's all-time receptions leaders at receiver and tight end, respectively, it's been the norm for years. Lately, Johnson's gotten in additional work, too.
Tight ends are back in vogue in the Big Ten.
There has been a noticeable rise in the use of players at the end of the line as receivers in 2017. Tight ends in the Big Ten have combined to catch 47 passes a week this season, up from 36 in 2016.
Wisconsin senior Troy Fumagalli leads the way with 18 receptions for 267 yards and three TDs, followed by Indiana's Ian Thomas (17 receptions, 260 yards and three TDs) and Purdue's Cole Herdman (11 receptions, 250 yards and two TDs).
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Tommy Stevens will take over as Penn State's starting quarterback eventually. Now, he's helping starter Trace McSorley any way he can.
No. 4 Penn State's do-it-all backup has emerged as another option in a loaded offense. Stevens has run for, caught and thrown for touchdowns already and could see more opportunities as Penn State looks for more ways to incorporate its big, athletic backup heading into the Big Ten opener at Iowa on Saturday.
PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — Penn State lived up to its reputation as a big-play offense.
It also made a couple of costly mistakes.
Trace McSorley threw three interceptions, and the fifth-ranked Nittany Lions blew a 14-point lead in the fourth quarter of a wild 52-49 loss to No. 9 Southern California in the Rose Bowl on Monday.
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Trace McSorley threw for 209 yards and two touchdowns, and Saquon Barkley ran for another score to lift Penn State over Kent State 33-13 in the season openers for both teams on Saturday.
Barkley finished with 105 yards rushing, and Tyler Davis chipped in two field goals for the Nittany Lions. A 29-yard field goal in the second quarter gave Penn State the lead for good.
