[NFL] Dolphins Have Minor Injury Problems

Recommended Posts

DAVIE, Fla., (Sports Network) - The Miami Dolphins will be without running back Travis Minor for Sunday's game against Cincinnati because of an ankle injury. Minor was hurt during last Saturday's season-opener against Tennessee. He ran for 25 yards on five carries and caught a pass for 20 yards before suffering the injury in the first half of the 17-7 loss.

The fourth-year back from Florida State inherited the starter's role in July when Ricky Williams abruptly announced his retirement.

The Dolphins will likely feature Lamar Gordon out of the backfield against the Bengals. Gordon was acquired from St. Louis just before the start of the season and was pressed into duty on Sunday when Minor and Sammy Morris were hurt.

Gordon ran for a team-high 32 yards on 12 carries and hauled in five passes for 30 yards in the setback against the Titans.

Morris is questionable for Sunday's game because of an ankle injury he sustained against Tennessee.
