Although the Miami Dolphins have had a very strong offseason and very good practices according to reports, there seems to be some unfortunate news to report late this Sunday evening. Miami Dolphins wide receiver Armon Binns has suffered an ACL and MCL tear. Due to the severity of the injury, Binns will be done for the season.
The Dolphins brought Binns in towards the end of last season. In his three games played with the Phins last year, Binns caught six balls for a total of 67 yards. Six of those catches were for first downs.
Behind the Dolphins top three WR’s, Mike Wallace, Brian Hartline, and Brandon Gibson, the Dolphins are thin. Binns is not the only WR hit by injury.
Return man and receiver Rishard Matthews also sat out during practice due to an undisclosed injury. According to a report Matthews could be out several weeks.
With the Dolphins fourth and fifth receiver spot up for grabs, they will now turn to players Jeff Fuller, Marvin McNutt, Jasper Collins, Brian Tyms, Andrell Smith, Kenny Stafford and Chad Bumphis. If the Dolphins decide that these receivers won’t cut it, look for them to turn their attention to the free agent market as there are still plenty of receivers that could have a very large impact on this team.
