He was carted off the field in Detroit on Sunday, and word in the postgame locker room from Dolphins players was Branden Albert could be lost for the season with a knee injury that requires surgery.
That according to the Miami Herald, who quoted Albert’s linemate Mike Pouncey. Pouncey gave indication that Albert is done for the season and headed for surgery.
“You hate to see that happen to anybody,” Dolphins guard Mike Pouncey told the Herald. “Just trying to talk him through, my brother went through the same thing last year and he came back stronger and better than ever. So this is just a tough time right now before the surgery. But as soon as he starts rehab, he’ll be alright. He has a long road ahead of him but he’ll get back healthy because he’s a fighter.”
Rookie right tackle Ju’Wuan James is expected to start at left tackle for Miami in Albert’s absence. Who takes James’ place at right tackle however remains to be seen on Thursday night.
