Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle has cleared the concussion protocol, the team announced Thursday.

After sitting out last weekend’s 70-point outburst against Denver, Waddle will be available for Sunday’s AFC East clash between Miami (3-0) and the host Buffalo Bills (2-1) in Orchard Park, N.Y.

Waddle was placed in the concussion protocol following a helmet-to-helmet hit during a Week 2 win over New England. Patriots rookie safety Marte Mapu was flagged for unnecessary roughness and fined $5,620.

Waddle, 24, has eight catches for 164 yards through two games. He has 187 receptions for 2,535 yards and 14 touchdowns in 35 games (all starts) since Miami drafted him with the No. 6 overall pick in 2021 out of Alabama.
