The rumors and speculation were true. Reshad Jones was officially placed on IR and is out for the season.
It’s a tough blow to the Dolphins, and frankly it surprises me that Jones couldn’t make it through. He’s shown resiliency in the past, but I suspect this time, the torn rotator cuff is just too severe to risk playing. I’d like to see what rookie Jordan Lucas can do in the secondary, but it will be hard to get him or anyone to perform at Jones’ level.
Tyrod Taylor is our next opponent. He’s not a great passer, but he runs the ball a lot. And scrambling quarterbacks have ALWAYS vexed the Dolphins.
