Dolphins Rookie CB Xavien Howard Underwent Surgery To Repair Meniscus, Out Indefinitely

Dolphins HC Adam Gase announced that rookie CB Xavien Howard underwent surgery to have his meniscus repaired in his knee and he’s out indefinitely, per Barry Jackson.

Gase did refer to Howard as “week to week” but said that his return will obviously depend on how his rehab goes. Jackson adds that the Dolphins are optimistic Howard will return within six weeks.

This will lead to Byron Maxwell returning to the starting lineup, according to Gase, per Adam Beasley.

Howard, 22, was taken with the No. 38 overall pick by the Dolphins. Miami actually traded up with the Ravens in round two to get Howard, which cost them the No. 107 pick.

In 2016, Howard has appeared in four games and recorded 28 tackles, a forced fumble, no interceptions and a pass defense for the Dolphins.

We’ll have more regarding Howard’s return as the news is available.
