Odrick currently expected to miss two weeks at the most

Some conflicting reports have emerged regarding the injury to Dolphins rookie Jared Odrick, a defensive end who took on a more prominent role after the season-ending injury to Phillip Merling.

Here’s what we’re hearing.

Odrick, per a source with knowledge of the situation, has only a slight fracture of his fibula.  X-rays were sent to Dr. Anderson in Charlotte, and no surgery will be performed.

For now, Odrick is expected to miss two weeks at the most, which would knock him out of the upcoming games against the Vikings and the Jets.

UPDATE:  Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald has reported essentially the same thing.

  1. rub some dirt on it and go play. too many players would rather sit out than play in a little pain. (not saying his injury isn’t bad enough to sit, just mentioning how many players are out for some pretty minor stuff)

  2. Likeable as he is, any sympathy or interest Jared may have hoped for following his injury evaporated the moment the NFL fanbase discovered Ines Sainz’ ass.

  3. It is a special ass…
    But back on topic, Jack Youngblood played an entire Super Bowl run with a broken fibula. AND he played in the Pro Bowl too!

  4. I’d rather him miss two weeks than play through a broken leg and damage it worse. He’s missing week 2 and 3, not the Super Bowl.

    Odrick + Misi for Ryan Mathews was a steal for the Dolphins. Just sayin..

    smartest thing the dolphins have EVER done… short of hiring Shula and drafting Marino.

    The injury is more then bad enough to sit with, and he should be sitting. He broke his fibula. Why would he risk his season if he will be healed up enough to play in only 2 weeks? There is toughness then there is stupidity.

  7. It’s going to be tough beating the Vikings and Jets (two teams who are very strong at the line of scrimmage) without Odrick. Maybe Miami tries to re-sign Marques Douglas or Charles Grant until Odrick comes back??

  8. Losing Odrick for two weeks will hurt. I have to admit I’m glad that missing him will hurt, given the Dolphins’ past draft busts.
    I don’t know why they don’t just sign Charles Grant back? He was stellar in the preseason. I know you want to get younger, Miami, but this is to fill in an injury need.
