For the second time in the last nine months, Dolphins safety Louis Delmas has been diagnosed with a torn the ACL in his right knee.
That’s the initial diagnosis after Delmas was carted off the practice field today, a league source tells PFT. Delmas is still holding out hope that an MRI will reveal the injury is less serious, but the medical staff that checked him out after the injury believes the ACL is torn again.
Delmas also tore his right ACL last year, in a December game against the Ravens. Knee problems have plagued him for much of his career, which is the primary reason the Lions released him after fie years in Detroit.
The Dolphins had been expecting Delmas to be their starting free safety this season. Instead he is expected to spend the season on injured reserve.
