The Miami Dolphins have been healthy all year. A bump here, a bruise there, but the injury report has basically been a two person list all year and they only showed up twice. The healthiest team in the NFL however, has finally been bitten by the injury bug.
On Monday, the Dolphins appeared to be heading into their week 8 match-up without their only “true” nose tackle, Jason Ferguson. The Dolphins won’t say what the injury is specifically but it is a rib or abdominal injury and it took him out of the Miami/Baltimore game this past weekend. He was missed and the Ravens were able to gain solid production late in the game.
With Ferguson out, the Dolphins will have to turn to FA acquisition Randy Starks, rookie Lionel Dotson, and the back from suspension Paul Soliai who served his one game last week.
Tony Sparano calls Ferguson “day-to-day” but the Dolphins appear ready to move on this weekend with out him.
