We have a favorite in the “Suck for Luck” sweepstakes.
The Dolphins will play the rest of the season without starting quarterback Chad Henne, according to Jeff Darlington of NFL.com. Darlington reports that Henne will undergo surgery on his separated non-throwing shoulder.
Matt Moore is likely to take over for Henne, but the team will have to sign a veteran or two. David Garrard made it clear this week that he only wanted to sign for some guaranteed money and a likely starting gig, and it appeared the Dolphins weren’t ready to go that far. We’ll see if that changes now.
It’s a big blow for Henne, who was showing signs of steady growth this year despite Miami’s records. His yards-per-attempt was way up to 7.8.
Henne is a free agent this offseason, and it’s hard to imagine him returning to Miami. There will almost certainly be a new coaching staff next year.
UPDATE: Darlington reports the Dolphins have interest in Sage Rosenfels, who is looking for work.
