The Dolphins placed starting right tackle Vernon Carey on injured reserve as a persistent knee problem became too much to bear.
Carey was replaced last week by Lydon Murtha, who along with the rest of Miami’s line had their share of struggles against the Jets who tallied five sacks Sunday. Murtha is a former seventh-round pick of the Lions (2009).
Add in the fact that Jake Long is playing with a bum shoulder that he’s got in a harness and the edges of Miami’s protection are not what they used to be at the start of the season.
