Miami will be without one of its starting defensive tackles for at least three weeks.

The Dolphins announced on Tuesday that they’ve placed Raekwon Davis on injured reserve. Davis suffered a knee injury during the Week One contest against the Patriots.

A second year player out of Alabama, Davis appeared in all 16 games for Miami in 2020 with 12 starts. He recorded 40 total tackles as a rookie.

With Davis sidelined, fellow defensive lineman John Jenkins received the bulk of Davis’ snaps in Week One. Miami also has defensive tackle Benito Jones on its practice squad.
