Miami Dolphins wide receiver Lynn Bowden avoided serious injury, but was still hurt during the team’s training camp practice on Thursday. According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, Bowden strained his hamstring:

Reports from the scene indicated that Bowden was spotted grabbing his right leg after making a contested catch over the middle of the field during team drills. The injury occurred during joint practices the Dolphins have been holding with the Atlanta Falcons ahead of their preseason meeting on Saturday.

The Miami Herald added that Bowden currently has no timetable for his return.

Bowden, 23, was a third-round pick of the Las Vegas Raiders in 2020. The Dolphins then traded a fourth-round pick for Bowden and a sixth-round selection in September 2021.

In 10 games with the Dolphins last year, the utility player had 28 catches for 211 yards. Bowden also spent time on the Reserve/COVID-19 list last season.

Bowden is currently near Miami’s roster bubble and is battling for a spot on the final 53-man roster. With his injury, Bowden could end up on the Dolphins’ injury reserve list to start the season if he does miss an extended period.
