Receiver Ricardo Louis will miss his second straight season.
The Miami Dolphins, who signed the wideout last month, placed Louis on injured reserve, ending his 2019 campaign before it began.
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Thursday that Louis suffered a knee injury that forced him to be put on IR.
The former Cleveland Browns receiver, who started 12 games in his first two seasons and didn't miss a tilt, was out the entire 2018 season due to a neck injury. His plans of making a comeback in Miami were dashed before they got off the ground in 2019. The 25-year-old could try again in 2020 to revive his injury-ravaged career.
