Dolphins TE Michael Egnew has an opportunity to make an impact

Joel Auerbach

Rookie tight end Michael Egnew, a third-round draft pick, could dress for the first time in the Dolphins' home finale against the Bills.

Not yet active for a Miami Dolphins game this season, rookie tight end Michael Egnew might get his first call to dress for a game this Sunday because of injuries ahead of him on the depth chart. And though Egnew has yet to dress for a game, he'll be as ready as he has been all season.

"I prepare as if I'm going to play every week," Egnew told the Orlando Sun Sentinel.

Dolphins fullback Charles Clay suffered a season-ending injury last weekend, opening up a possible position on the active gameday roster for Egnew.

Concerns linger about Egnew's strength, according to the Sun Sentinel, and Egnew was famously chewed out by Dolphins offensive coordinator Mike Sherman on an episode of HBO's Hard Knocks over the summer when the show was documenting Dolphins training camp.

"The consistency has to be a part of his game and that's what we're looking for from him," Sherman told the Sun Sentinel, while also mentioning that Egnew had made progress. "[He] hasn't 100 percent shown that consistency just yet."
