Dolphins lose starting cornerback Tony Lippett for season

Getty Images

The Dolphins are down a starting cornerback.

Tony Lippett has a torn Achilles tendon and will miss the entire season.

Lippett, who started 13 games last season, was a 2015 fifth-round draft pick of the Dolphins. He suffered the injury during Monday’s practice.

The injury is a significant blow to the Dolphins’ defense and special teams: Lippett played 75 percent of the Dolphins’ defensive snaps and 36 percent of the Dolphins’ special teams snaps last season.

Lippett’s torn Achilles is another piece of bad luck for a Dolphins team that has already lost starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill for the season after a practice injury.

  1. No McMillian, no Tannehill, two RBs concussed, Jay Cutler signed, and now no Lippett….

    Yup. Fins are definitely tanking…

    I’m a Pats fan myself but what do the Dolphins have to do with Deflategate? Or are we at the point of saying every other team in the NFL should have bad luck because of it? I seem to remember quite a few players and coaches sticking up for Brady/Bill so I can’t really get behind the “screw every other team” ethos as retribution.

    As a longtime Patriots diehard fan – that is just embarrassing.

  5. Deflaregate? When are patriot fans going to accept he got nailed for destroying evidence being evasive not fully cooperating and lying ie claiming the text that included the word deflater meant the guy was trying to lose weight. Thats cooperating and being honest? And the dolphins also lost there tarting rg for most of the year eh this years draft is loade at least

    No.

    The Pats have never cheated. Known fact.

    Are you watching the aftermath of the Ezekiel Elliott framejob?

    If not, go ahead and try to use your brain for once, it might work.

    With Miami, or any AFC rival, you can bet they egged on Goodell to move forward with the Spygate and Deflategate framejobs.

    Oh yes you can.

    Considering they were talking about his weight during that text exchange and there was no evidence tying Brady to anything about a pre-game scheme of any kind, when are pepople like you going to realize Roger Goodell is a cheater and pathological liar?

    Hmm?

    If there is evidence, framing someone is not necessary. Is this really that difficult?

    Still think the Boogeyman punched out Rice’s fiancee? Hmm?

    Do you believe in the tooth fairy, too? Hint: Roger Goodell has had you fooled for a decade.

    Why won’t Goodell release the PSI data from 2015? Is that because there isn’t any or is he afraid after he said he would? Hmmm?

    Was there really an investigation of Peyton Manning and his PED ring and cheasting or did they not want to make the Pats path easier to yet another SB appearance? Hmm?

    Why is there a video of Derek Wolfe punching out a civilian in a bar, but nothing happens?

    Why is Pacman Jones still in the league?

    Why do AFC teams get protected, but the Pats framed?

    I know the answers to these questions, do you?

    Pay attention to the Ezekile Elliott case and you’ll see yet another framejob and cheating orchestrated by none other than the people at 345 Park Ave.

    Stop posing as a Pats fan. THAT is what is embarrassing. You’re probably one of the kids who posed for a photo with Goodell the other night at the game.

    Mortifying.

    What’s “long time”? 10 years, little guy? lmao

  9. Puts all the pressure on Byron Maxwell now whos overpayed and not that good of a player!

    Yup, it’s been over 40 years since the Dolphins won a SB, and it was over 40 years before the Pat’s won theirs.

    Correct, however Shula completed his Perfect Season in 72 unlike Belicheat who choked to a 9-7 Giants team. 🙂

    Yes, let’s all ignore Goodel and certain owner’s cheating towards our team.

    No way some of you are Pats fans. You just run around here posing as Pats fans.

    No real Pats fan would approve of Goodell or owners cheating our team. Period.

    We don’t, but this article has NOTHING to do with Goodell or anything else. That’s the only reason you’re getting flak right now, for being off topic.

    A sure way to find your team with major injury issues is to rejoice in another team’s misfortune. Major fail.

    Byron Maxell is not that good of a corner, the Eagles have better corners than the Dolphins! point blank period!!

  19. Wining a championship I would think is karma especially as you can welcome “Roger” on opening night. But I beleive he should be thanked because he has lit a fire in Brady that will probably add a few extra years and Super Bowls.

    Well that, celebrating an injury to an opponent and being a general know nothing horse’s rear.

  21. Lippett is a very promising young player. And he started a lot last year. But it’s firmly entrenched that Byron Maxwell and Xavier Howard are the starting CBs. Depth took a big hit, tho…

  22. “When are patriot fans going to accept he got nailed for destroying evidence being evasive not fully cooperating”

    When are you people going to get some reading comprehension? The phone was destroyed only after it had been repeatedly examined by Wells who told Brady he was free to destroy it as he no longer needed it? He has said in his report Brady cooperated fully.

    SMH

  23. Wasn’t going to start this season but the way this will hurt the most is depth at DB. Hopefully Gase and the rest of them fill LB and DB depth or it might be another tough season. Was really looking forward to McMillan this season.

    Why do you keep repeating this falsehood? At no time did Wells have possession of Brady’s phone. He certainly didn’t say to go ahead and destroy it.

    This is correct, at no time did Wells even ask for Brady’s phone, he just asked for his agent Don Yee to turn over results of search results found in the phone in regards to key words or phrases pertaining to the case. Now Brady did hand over 2 other phones but one was not active during the time frame in question and the other was missing about 4 months of information needed for the case. Brady destroyed the original phone.

  26. Wow, as a Pats fan I was looking forward to NE playing MIA. They made the playoffs last season and looked stronger going into this season. I thought it was going to be a couple great games, possibly a split for the season, and maybe even seeing them again in the playoffs

    Then Ryan goes down and they replace him with Mr Football, ALL about the TEAM, Jay Cutler. DOH! Sprinkle in some more bad luck and now this. Bummer for MIA fans. They’ll win some games, but the playoffs look like a longshot now, and that’s gotta suck for their fans, considering their possibilities just a short time ago.

    Respect.

    I was looking forward to the match up as well. I wouldn’t put it past Gase to pull a win out in Miami, though. He dealt with more injuries last season to more starters and the team still gutted out 10 wins. Cutler is not horrible, if Miami can run the ball the way they want to and play better defense, this team could win 10 more games and be right in the mix at the end. There is still plenty of talent there.

    They’re just making the Dolphins fans feel at home, since Dolphins fans spend so much time in Patriots threads.

  30. Damnit. 3 starters on IR already and they have played 1 preseason game. The bad luck surrounding this team is breathtaking.
