The play of left tackle Jake Long has been much discussed in Miami this season, but they won’t get much to add to it on Sunday.
Long left the game against the Patriots near the end of the first quarter with a left triceps injury. Jonathan Martin has replaced him in the lineup and the team says Long is questionable to return.
Long is set to become a free agent after the season and his decline in play has led to thoughts that the former first overall pick will remain in Miami past this season. Martin was a second-round pick, so the team wouldn’t be without an option if they went in that direction.
That’s for another time, though. For now, the Dolphins need to figure out how to come back from 17-3 down on what’s been a sloppy day for their offense.
