Yeah, the optimism created by interim coach Dan Campbell and his former two-game winning streak didn’t last long.
In addition to the season-ending Achilles tear for defensive end Cameron Wake, the Dolphins suffered another significant line injury last night.
According to Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post, right tackle Ja’Wuan James is expected to miss four to six weeks with a toe injury.
James had to be carted off last night against the Patriots.
The Dolphins had run well during their short burst of enthusiasm, but that will get tougher without the former first-rounder. Given that left tackle Branden Albert is seldom completely well, it’s going to be hard for the Dolphins to continue to be as physical up front.
