Dolphins OT Carey to I-R

Posted by Chris Brown on December 14, 2010 – 2:41 pm

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.

Miami’s Carey questionable

Posted by Chris Brown on December 13, 2010 – 12:32 pm

Miami starting right tackle Vernon Carey, missed his first start in five seasons Sunday against the Jets due to a knee injury suffered the week before. This morning head coach Tony Sparano, left Carey’s status for this Sunday’s game up in the air per Miami Herald columnist Armando Salguero.

“I don’t know right now,” said Sparano in a press conference this morning, when asked if Carey could return to the lineup this week against the Bills. “Really don’t. I can’t tell you yes.”

Second-year lineman Lydon Murtha replaced Carey in the lineup Sunday in Miami’s 10-6 win over the Jets. Murtha was part of a suspect front that saw Chad Henne get sacked five times and fumble twice, losing both of them.

Add in the fact that Jake Long is playing with a bum shoulder and the edges of Miami’s pass protection is less than 100 percent to say the least.
