Miami Dolphins left tackle Jake Long is hurt again.
Long left practice Monday after injuring his right knee during an 11-on-11 drill. He sat in a cart while being examined, then walked to the locker room. Coach Joe Philbin declined to discuss the severity of the injury with reporters.
Back trouble slowed Long last season, and he went on injured reserve before the final game because of a torn right biceps. He nonetheless was chosen a Pro Bowl starter for the third consecutive year.
Long has battled knee trouble in the past and wore a brace on his right knee Monday. Rookie Jonathan Martin, who protected Andrew Luck at Stanford, moved from right tackle to the left side to fill in for Long.

The Miami Dolphins needed to cut one final player in advance of the 4pm deadline on Monday to get their roster to 75 players. Julius Pruitt, listed on the Dolphins depth chart as a 2nd team wide receiver, didn’t expect to be that cut. It was thought that Pruitt would be a virtual lock to [...]
DAVIE, Fla. Youd think Clyde Gates would be concerned. The Dolphins have one of the worst receiving corps in the NFL, and Gates isnt even a lock to make the team.
But the second-year man doesnt seem too worried.
They can say what they want to say, Gates said about critics maligning Miamis ball catchers. They doubted Jesus, didnt they?
Perhaps divine intervention will be needed...
