Dolphins OT Jake Long Expecting To Play In Opener Vs Texans
The Miami Dolphins received a scare this week when Pro Bowl left tackle Jake Long injured his right knee during Monday's practice.
Long was determined to have a sprained medial collateral ligament, but was expected to be fine for the Dolphins' regular-season opener against the Houston Texans on September 9.
On Friday, both Long and head coach Joe Philbin reiterated that the franchise left tackle should be healthy when the team begins preparations for that game on Monday.
"Like I said, the only thing I would reiterate would be our anticipation is we're going to have 53 healthy guys come (when) we start to prepare for Houston," Philbin said when asked about Long's status. "Whether that's the case, time will tell, but that's the anticipation we have."
"It's getting better every day," Long said of his injury, via Shandel Richardson of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. "I'm doing a lot of rehab and treatment and just working to get back."
