Dolphins left tackle Terron Armstead left Sunday’s win over the Texans with a pectoral injury and there was no immediate word about the severity of the injury after the game.

Head coach Mike McDaniel said at his press conference that Armstead needs to have the injury evaluated further by doctors on Monday before the team will have an idea about what it will mean for his availability moving forward. The injury happened in the first half and the Dolphins went up 30-0 before the break, but McDaniel said the injury was serious enough that Armstead would not have stayed in a closer game.

“That was an injury regardless of the score that was going to keep him out of the game,” McDaniel said, via Safid Deen of USA Today.

Right tackle Austin Jackson also suffered an ankle injury during the game, so the Dolphins will have plenty to monitor on the injury front heading into Week 13.

  1. touchback6 being the typical buzz kill because he’s got nothing cheerful to say about New England! Lol

  2. As incompetent as the saints medical team is, they surprisingly may have known this would be a recurring problem and endorsed the saints letting him go.

  3. Time for the Fish GM Grier to give Eric Fisher or Daryl Williams a call
    … maybe even Bobby Massie – I’m sure one of them is capable of playing 6 or more games for a small fee.

  4. Miami having no idea how to build an offensive line is going to probably keep the team from the playoffs again. With Armstead out Miami isn’t beating the 9ers. And probably not beating the Chargers. Forget about about beating Buffalo in Buffalo. So sitting at 9 and 6 with a win over Green Bay maybe and games against the Patriots and Jets. Miami will have to win both of those games,maybe if Armstead is back.
