Reshad Jones may be out for the year with a shoulder injury
Bad news for the Miami Dolphins today as they fear safety Reshad Jones could miss the remainder of the season following a shoulder injury.
The team fears Jones tore his rotator cuff during this past Sunday’s win against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
While the team hasn’t issued any official statement, Jones is currently seeking a second opinion on the diagnosis.
That’s never a good sign. Especially for a player who’s been dealing with shoulder issues all season.
Jones has become one of the NFL’s top safeties over the last three seasons and was rewarded with a trip to the Pro Bowl in 2015.
If he’s unable to play, the team would turn to either Walt Aikens of Michael Thomas at strong safety. It’s also possible the team would move Isa Abdul-Quddus back to his more natural strong safety position, with the others fighting to play free safety.
Thomas actually started 13 games for the Dolphins at free safety last season.
Jones has 50 tackles, an interception, and half a sack through six games this year.
