While the Miami Dolphins are excited about starting the 2013 season 3-0, the team has a number of key, pivotal injuries up and down their roster.

The Dolphins received news that defensive end Cameron Wake could miss one to two weeks on Monday, and Tuesday, the team found some unpleasant news regarding defensive back Dimitri Patterson and defensive tackle Paul Soliai.

Patterson, who is currently nursing groin injury, has experienced a setback that will cost him from possibly practicing this week or playing in Monday’s game, according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.

Along with Patterson and Wake, Soliai was ruled out of Tuesday’s practice, and is currently 50-50 playing against the New Orleans Saints due to a knee sprain, Jackson adds.
