Dolphins HC Adam Gase told reporters that there’s a “high probability” G Ted Larsen will play this year, despite sustaining a biceps injury.
“I think there’s a really high probability that he’ll play this year,” Gase said, via Pro Football Talk. “Normally it would’ve been an injury where he’d be done for the year, but with the way the rules are built, we should have a chance to get him back. It was disappointing because he was probably our most consistent guy day in and day out. I hate to see that for him because he’s worked so hard to understand what we’re doing. He’s brought a great attitude. He’s a great veteran presence. Losing him hurts, but the next guy will step up and we’ll keep rotating guys in to figure out who it is going to be.”

Ravens OC Marty Mornhinweg mentioned that they’re “not quite there yet” in regards to having a plan for integrating Joe Flacco when he returns from a back injury.
“The important thing is [that] there will come a time where we have a plan for him, and we’re not quite there yet, and it may come pretty quick,” Mornhinweg said, via the Baltimore Sun. “So we’ll see. Maybe I’m hoping and wishing, but I hope that comes pretty quickly.
“By Joe’s account, he’s getting better and feeling better and all those things,” Mornhinweg said. “When he’s back, it’ll be a good thing to get him back. From here until that time, we’re rocking and rolling with the fellow we have.”
