He gave them a scare, but it appears that Jake Long’s MCL sprain, suffered last week in practice, was of the minor variety and he will be able to play against Houston this week. He’s listed as probable and practiced in full Friday. If he hadn’t been able to go, simply put, the Dolphins would have been screwed against a Texans defense that ranked 4th in scoring and 6th in defense last year, with a raw rookie quarterback under center, no good receivers, and no true above average starter on the offensive line. Even with Long though, their outlook looks pretty bleak against the Texans in Houston. It’s more of a question of whether or not the Dolphins can cover as 13 point underdog, the biggest line this week, than if they can win. Anyone who plays Survivor Leagues should feel confident in picking Houston this week.

DELAYING THE INEVITABLE
The unemployed wide receiver reportedly is attempting to delay his divorce from Evelyn Lozada by refusing to sign paperwork or appear at proceedings.
Sure, Ryan Tannehill’s wife does a great job playing the South Beach hottie, but that doesn’t translate to wins for the Dolphins. We all knew it was coming when the Miami Dolphins selected quarterback Ryan Tannehill with the eighth selection of the 2012 NFL draft, but we also knew he wasn’t ready to start in [...]
According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland could be out of a job at the end of the season if his team continues to play the way they did today.
Owner Stephen Ross must decide whether Jeff Ireland is the right man long-term for the franchise’s most important position, aside from quarterback.
Ross made clear he expects a winning team in...
It’s finally back.
As if I even need to mention it, the NFL season is back in full swing. After the first batch of games, it appears as if it will be another hugely defense-heavy year for Penn Staters in the NFL.
As of posting, there are only 4 Nittany Lions on NFL roster in offensive, stat-recording positions (Sorry, lineman!) and of those, only 1 is a starter.
HOUSTON (AP) -- Miami running back Daniel Thomas has left Sunday's game against Houston with a head injury.
Thomas was injured on a play where he fumbled just before halftime. He remained on a the field for several minutes before walking off unassisted.
The Dolphins said he wouldn't return, but there were no further details on the extent of his injury. He had three carries...
Anchored by Reggie Bush, who ran for over a thousand yards last year, the Miami Dolphins backfield will surely be the key to setting the offense in motion. Bush is backed up by 2nd year man Daniel Thomas who proved to be a serviceable backup last year when called upon to spell Bush.
In the NFL debut of Coach Joe Philbin and quarterback Ryan Tannehill, the Dolphins hardly could have drawn a tougher assignment than the Houston Texans — on the road no less. Houston is considered by most one of the favorites in the AFC in 2012 and the Dolphins will go into this game as the biggest underdogs on opening day. But is a victory impossible? Stranger things have happened.
HOUSTON (AP) -- Arian Foster had two touchdown runs, Matt Schaub threw a TD pass to Andre Johnson, and Houston's defense dominated rookie Ryan Tannehill and Miami in the Texans' 30-10 win over the Dolphins on Sunday.
Tannehill threw three interceptions in a stunning 6-minute stretch late in the first half, and the Texans opened impressively in what they believe can be a...
The Houston Texans opened up their regular season yesterday against the Miami Dolphins at Reliant Stadium. The Dolphins, with rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill, came into this game hoping to do to the Texans what Mark Sanchez did to them his rookie season and win his first career football game. It’s obvious that the Texans remembered that game and were not about to allow it to...

The Miami Dolphins played well in...
