Miami wide receiver Will Fuller is expected to be week-to-week after breaking a finger during the Dolphins’ 27-17 home loss to Indianapolis on Sunday, according to a report Monday by NFL Network.

Fuller, 27, left the game after injuring his hand during the second quarter vs. the Colts and did not return. Fuller exited shortly after trying to make a diving catch with 8:08 left in the quarter, recording one catch for 6 yards in his second game as a Dolphin.

Miami quickly announced Fuller as questionable and formally ruled him out early in the third quarter. Also injured during the second quarter Sunday was cornerback Byron Jones, who went out with a quad injury and did not return.

Head coach Brian Flores confirmed both would undergo testing on Monday.

A first-round pick by the Houston Texans in 2016, Fuller signed a one-year, $10 million contract with Miami in March.

Last season, Fuller set career highs with 53 receptions for 879 yards and eight touchdowns in 11 games. He missed the final five games after receiving a six-game suspension for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances.

Fuller completed the punishment by sitting out Week 1 of the 2021 season, then missed Week 2 for personal reasons. He made his Miami debut last week at Las Vegas, catching three passes for 20 yards with a two-point conversion in the 31-28 overtime loss to the Raiders.

Miami (1-3) travels to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-1) this Sunday.
