The Miami Dolphins have yet to take the field this season, as the team’s Week 1 regular season-opener was ultimately postponed due to the effects of Hurricane Irma. Nonetheless, the AFC East franchise will apparently be at full strength for its Week 2 matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers slated for Sunday afternoon.

According to a Sunday morning report from Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, the Dolphins are expected to have No. 1 wide receiver Jarvis Landry on the field on Sunday against the Chargers. Landry has been nursing a lingering knee injury while suddenly appearing on the team’s injury report earlier in the week.

Not only that, but it appears as though Landry will be suiting up without any restriction in Week 2.

“Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry, who popped up on the injury report late with a knee injury, is expected to play without limitation today,” writes Rapoport.

The 24-year-old wideout is currently in the midst of his fourth go-round atop the highest level, all of which have come as a member of the Dolphins. Landry was originally selected by Miami in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft out of LSU. Last season, the veteran pass catcher hauled in 94 receptions on 131 targets for 1,136 yards and four touchdowns over the course of all 16 regular-season games for the playoff-bound Dolphins. For his NFL career as a whole, Landry has already registered 288 receptions on 407 targets for 3,051 yards and 13 touchdowns in all.
