A scary moment for the Dolphins in Thursday’s night preseason game should not create lasting damage to the team. We think.
Early indications following left tackle Jake Long’s knee injury are that Long avoided a major problem. Long said he was “not concerned” about it and “confident” he’d play in the season opener. Jeff Darlington of the Miami Herald writes Long “does not appear seriously injured.”
After the Dolphins trainers looked at Long’s knee Thursday, he sat on the bench for the rest of the game. While he apparently was in some discomfort after the game, he still met with reporters.
The scare was a somewhat fitting conclusion to an ugly month for the Dolphins offense. Brandon Marshall isn’t worried.
