Chad Henne said Monday that he expects to start when the Dolphins return from their bye week.
It just may not be that simple.
Jeff Darlington of NFL.com reports that the Dolphins believe Henne separated his non-throwing shoulder. While Henne is game to play through the pain, the Dolphins sent Henne for a second opinion. It’s possible that the injury could end his season.
“While the team is not yet ruling anything out, the feelings coming from the organization about the situation are most definitely tense,” Darlington writes.
Jason LaCanfora reports that the Dolphins have reached out to David Garrard and Jake Delhomme. No deal has been made yet, as both veterans are looking for part of their contract to be guaranteed. (They want to be around more than a week or two.)
Garrard makes the most sense here if the team needs a long-term fix. At this point, Matt Moore is the only healthy quarterback on the Dolphins roster.
