Miami Dolphins tight end Jordan Cameron is dealing with a concussion and likely will miss Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to the Miami Herald.
No Cameron is good news for the Steelers, even if the tight end hasn’t been the receiving weapon he once was. Back in 2013, Cameron had 80 receptions for 917 yards and seven touchdowns, but this season he only has 60 yards and a touchdown in three games played.
More important than Sunday’s game, though, is the fact that Cameron has now sustained several concussions at the college and pro level. As noted by the report above, Cameron’s future in the NFL is in doubt. There have been no concrete talks of retirement, but health is a major issue at this point and nobody would fault Cameron for walking away from the game at 28 years old.
In 66 career games, Cameron has caught 173 passes for 2,046 yards and 14 touchdowns. Cameron is “mulling his NFL future,” according to the report and has missed the team’s last two games with the concussion. This concussion is his fourth documented concussion in four years.
