Dolphins LT Jake Long Suffers A Knee Injury

Ben Volin reports that LT Jake Long just tweaked his MCL, and adds that it’s believed to be a low-grade injury.

This is great news for his availability for the start of the season.


Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald confirms that Dolphins LT Jake Long has a sprained MCL and depending on the severity, he could be out anywhere from 1-6 weeks.

The consensus is that Long will not miss a lot of time with the injury, but this is something to monitor in the coming days.


Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports that Dolphins LT Jake Long wound up injuring his right knee during the Monday’s practice.

There’s still no indication as to the extent of Long’s injury, but this is obviously concerning considering that he’s only of the only reliable offensive players that the team has. The good news is that Long was able to walk off of the field without help from the training staff. Hopefully it’s nothing major and he’ll be able available for the team’s first game of the season against the a tough Houston Texans defensive line.
