The only thing that's certain is that nothing will be certain until Fiedler can start throwing a football.
Fiedler guessed that it would be another week to 10 days before he can start throwing a football, but he plans on picking up a Nerf ball or a tennis ball before then.
In the meantime, Fiedler is going to be working on re-establishing the range of motion in his right thumb.
"Right now my focus is on getting the range of motion back," Fiedler said. "When I'm ready to throw, I'll have a better determination of when I'll be 100 percent."
Fiedler figures to be back in the lineup before he's back at 100 percent. But despite the Dolphins' struggles with him on the sidelines, he's not going to rush his return and come back before he can be effective.
"I'm going to come back when I'm ready to come back," Fiedler said. "If I come back prematurely, I will only be hurting the team. I'm not rushing just to get back out there to make something happen."
Needless to say, watching the offense the last three games hasn't been pleasant for Fiedler.
"It's frustrating anytime I'm not playing," Fiedler said, "but it's even more frustrating when we're not winning."
