NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported that the move is more procedural than anything and the timetable for a recovery doesn't change.
Since the rookie underwent foot surgery in June, the timetable has always been to have the first-round pick back by Week 1, Rapoport reported at the time.
Parker's agent has trumpeted his client's progress throughout the offseason, saying last month "everything is perfect" with the wideout's recovery.
The 6-foot-3 pass-catcher stood out early in offseason workouts, prior to the surgery. He was reportedly seen "slowly" jogging for the first time on Monday.
Getting Parker back for Week 1 to help stretch the field and provide a dynamic playmaker would be a big boon for Ryan Tannehill.
