On Monday, Dolphins HC Adam Gase told reporters that DE William Hayes is expected to miss the remainder of the 2017 season.
Ian Rapoport reports that Hayes is dealing with a hamstring injury that’s expected to require surgery.
You can expect the Dolphins to place him on injured reserve in the coming days and add someone to their roster.
Hayes, 31, is a former fourth-round pick of the Titans back in 2008. He spent four years in Tennessee before signing on with the Rams in 2012.
The Rams traded Hayes and seventh-round pick to the Dolphins this past March for a sixth-round pick.
Hayes is in the second year of his three-year, $21 million contract that includes $10 million guaranteed and stands to make a base salary of $3.5 million for the 2017 season.
In 2017, Hayes appeared in 10 games for the Dolphins and recorded 19 tackles and a sack. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 15 edge rusher out of 112 qualifying players.
We’ll have more regarding Hayes as the news is available.
