Injuries continue to mount for the Miami Dolphins in the pre-season. Omar Kelley tweeted that in Tony Sparano’s presser today that he announced Nate Garner had surgery on his foot five days ago and will be out 4-6 weeks. This is purely speculation but chances are Garner could be placed on the PUP list to start the season and not available until week 7.
Last year Garner became extremely valuable to the Dolphins for his ability to play multiple positions along the line. This year is going to be no different and Garner is the swing man that will be the back up at 4 or the 5 positions along the line. His loss just adds to the injuries that have been mounting throughout camp.
According to Kelly, Sparano also expressed concern about John Jerry’s knee and the continued soreness that has held him out of practice.
