The Dolphins got a scare when left tackle Jake Long left practice with an apparent knee injury on Monday. With an already poor offense, they couldn’t afford to lose their left tackle and best offensive player for any period of time. However, according to the Palm Beach Post, what was originally believed to be an MCL sprain was just a good “tweak” and he’s more likely than not to suit up for the opener, which is still 12 days away. This is obviously very good news because Long’s absence would have left rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill a sitting duck week 1 against the Texans and their fierce pass rush.
