And it keeps getting worse for the Dolphins. They better pray that Long is able to suit up for them week 1 or its not going to be pretty when they face us.

Left tackle Jake Long was pass-protecting when he went down in a heap. He stayed on the turf for a few minutes, before trainers moved him to a cart, according to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald.

They also took the brace off Long’s right knee, and worked on his right leg. He eventually walked into the team facility under his own power.

He supposedly sustained an isolated MCL sprain. Depending on the grade of injury, return to play could be anywhere from 2-5 weeks. Even if it's closer to the lesser and he is allowed back on the field for the season opener, he would not be expected to be at full strength. A break for the Texans (as though they needed one other than they are playing the Phins).
