ESPN Dolphins reporter James Walker considers free agent Dustin Keller re-signing with Miami "unlikely."
Keller's gruesome August knee injury resulted in a torn ACL, MCL, PCL as well as a dislocation. He had to watch as Charles Clay broke out for a 69/759/6 line, grabbing the 2014 starting role in the process. Keller, who will turn 30 years old in September, will have to prove his health before getting a deal in free agency. The injury was severe enough that his Week 1 status remains in doubt.

This is why 1 year deals are such a risk for good players.

His status for this season is still in doubt?

He got injured last Pre Season…Does he not drink milk?

The dude was completely crippled by that punk DJ Swearinger. I'd like to think karma kicked Houston's butt this year with all their expectations resulting in the NFL's worst record. It's tragic what happened to Keller, hopefully he didn't blow through most of his money so he can enjoy after football, which is very possible that he won't ever play in the league again.

Shame because he was a darn good player, and Miami would've had monster potential with him and Clay lined up on the same offense.

I've honestly stopped reading James Walker posts. While I agree that Keller probably won't be re-signed, this little blurb isn't really news, just some guy's guess while looking over the roster. And that is basically what he does, just make guesses that anyone of us could throw out or repeat something a beat writer said 24 hours earlier.

If ESPN is just looking for someone to parrot what other reporters say and make guesses then I'll happily change careers and accept that paycheck to cover the AFC East.

Dustin Keller is unlikely to ever play again on any team.

How long is the typical recovery time for an injury to the knee ligaments?
Much progress has been made in the rehab progression of ACL reconstruction. These athletes usually return to sport in less than one year but return to most activities in 6-8 months. Keller's knee injury was much more serious and likely has damage that exceeds the ACL, MCL, and PCL. His injury would likely back his timeline up about 6 months. Many things must be taken into account though. Keller plays tight end which means that he has to block very quick defense ends, have the power to keep them away from the quarterback, and also agility to run routes. Many factors will play into anyone's return to play, and they will all tell you that rehab is a difficult and rewarding process.


They projected 12+ months before he would be able to play... HGH could speed that up tho... :RB2

HGH could also speed up a recurring injury.

Probably not a ligament injury though, right?

I thought that was more of a consequence with muscle injuries.

Many ligament injuries occur due to PEDs that develop the muscles beyond the capability of the joints.

He's on the wrong side of 30, coming off 2 major knee injuries.
I think his NFL career is over. If he gets a shot, it will be on a short-term, incentive based contract and he will likely not be a starter again.

It sucks. It should be Swearinger who's out of a career.

Nerve damage usually results in injuries that severe. At the very least arthritis which ends the careers of many RBs.

Even if he made a miraculous comeback, the emergence of Charles Clay would have sealed the deal on his coming back to the Dolphins. That was $4.25 million not playing for us last year, and that is sad because the Dolphins could have used a Keller/Clay combo.

Keller at TE and Clay at FB/TE2 is killer in Madden.

I still believe that was a career ending injury for Keller.
