Despite missing the past few weeks, Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle has kept high hopes of returning to the team full-time in the near future.
Waddle suffered an injury to his midsection two weeks ago and has not practiced since. But when speaking with members of the local media on Tuesday, the former Alabama wide receiver shared that he is optimistic he will be back before the team’s Week 1 matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Waddle’s return will be integral to the Dolphins success on offense as quarterback Tua Tagovailoa will have two marquee receivers in Waddle and Tyreek Hill.
Last season Waddle turned in an excellent second campaign recording 75 receptions for 1,356 yards and eight touchdowns.
