Laremy Tunsil might miss minicamp with leg injury


The good news for the Dolphins is that left tackle Laremy Tunsil’s injury doesn’t appear to be serious.

But the fact he might miss this week’s minicamp highlights the fact that one of the deepest positions on their roster last year is now on the thin side.

According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, Tunsil has a “leg muscle injury” and might miss part of this week’s work.

After shipping veteran Branden Albert off to Jacksonville, Tunsil took over as their left tackle, after the first-round pick spent last year at left guard.

Sam Young’s their backup tackle on both sides, and even though he has been competent as a fill-in, it’s still a drop-off from Tunsil. (Which is kind of like saying “No disrespect, Sam,” and then following it with the immediate disrespect).

They even acknowledge if this was a regular season week, he’d probably play, but there’s no use taking chances in June and making a small thing worse, and risking his availability for training camp. Tunsil has missed time during OTAs because of the problem, and they’ll check him this morning before they go on the field.

  1. Just make sure he is in the line up when the games start for real,that goes for Pouncy too. It would be nice to see another gem slip between the rocks this training camp,but I sure hope where fine with the line we have in place . Go fins

  2. So far Tunsil has been soft. A lot of injuries last year and he’s starting again this year.

    Big time concern in my eyes.

  3. Yea right Tunsil is soft…. and your worried about Tunsil hitting the bong too much?

  4. I swear I want to slap a baby panda bear every time some internet nerd behind a computer screen calls an NFL lineman soft.

    I guess the only ones that aren’t soft based on injury history are Joe Thomas and Ndamukong Suh since they’ve been relatively healthy throughout their careers, right? No, it’s that they’re pretty much gods amongst titans.
