MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – Things are getting worse between the Miami Dolphins and wide receiver DeVante Parker.

Parker did not play in the Dolphins' 32-21 loss to the Detroit Lions.

After the game, Parker's agent Jimmy Gould released a statement criticizing head coach Adam Gase.

"I am responding that he is not telling the truth and his decision was an example of poor management and cost the team the best opportunity to win," Gould wrote. "He continues attacking the health of my client and that is not acceptable. Parker is not only healthy but wants to help this team win and the only real question that should be asked is how does coach Gase justify his own incompetence. They averaged only 6.1 yards per pass catch. They needed Parker, who is completely healthy and was in full participation all week and in warmups this morning. Something smells in Miami."

Parker was a first round pick by the Dolphins in 2015.

Miami has reportedly been involved in trade talks for Parker.
