Insight: Signing Keller would be a curious move seeing as the Patriots already have one banged up tight end on their roster in Rob Gronkowski (torn ACL). Keller could be helpful for the Pats if healthy but he's still just eight months removed from a devastating knee injury.

Description: According to Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports 1, Dolphins tight end Dustin Keller is "most likely" done for the season.
Insight: Keller injured his knee in Saturday's preseason game against Houston. Keller hasn't been given an official diagnosis yet but the fear is that he may have suffered a torn ACL. Considering that he only signed a one-year deal, it's possible that Keller may leave Miami without ever playing a regular season game.

Description: Miami tight end Dustin Keller hurt his knee in Saturday's preseason game versus Houston.

Insight: Keller had an injury plagued 2012 season and missed eight games but he had 65 catches for 815 yards in 2011-12. Miami has signed Keller, Mike Wallace and Brandon Gibson and re-signed Brian Hartline this offseason. Ryan Tannehill is a happy man.

Description: Jets tight end Dustin Keller (ankle) didn't travel with the team to Buffalo. He won't play in Week 17 due to a high-ankle sprain. SOURCE: Rich Cimini, ESPNNewYork.com
Insight: Keller (28-317-2) has only played eight games this season after playing all 16 in each of his first four. The tight end will be an unrestricted free agent in the offseason and recently expressed disdain for the franchise tag to the Newark Star-Ledger, saying "I signed a five-year deal, that's what I agreed to. To make somebody play a one-year deal to something they never agreed to is crazy to me. It's not legal in any other business, so it's still, it's just crazy to me." He may have played his last game as a New York Jet.

Insight: The usual recovery time for a high ankle sprain is about a month so it's unlikely Keller will appear in another game this season. Keller owners will need to hit the waiver wire for a new tight end before the fantasy playoffs get underway in Week 14.

Description: It doesn't look like Jets tight end Dustin Keller will be able to play Sunday versus the 49ers according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Keller is still struggling with an injured hamstring.
Insight: We've heard conflicting reports about Keller's status as Kimberly Jones of the NFL Network reported that Keller was on track to play about an hour before Schefter's report came out. Either way, Keller will be a player to avoid in fantasy on Sunday as New York lines up against a stout San Francisco defense in Week 4.
