The Dolphins were flat out embarrassed by their

divisional foes up in Foxborough last week Miami Dolphins Jerseys Stitched , showing that Miami still has a ways to go before emerging as a top AFC contender. That game also brought injuries to the forefront of everyone’s mind in South Florida, as the Dolphins’ swath of absences due to injuries is beginning to take a toll on this team. When the Dolphins travel to Cincinnati this weekend, one player on the opposing team is sure to attempt to take advantage of Miami’s ailing secondary.Each week of the 2018 season, I’m highlighting one player on the opposing team that Dolphins fans should be watching out for. This week, that player is Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd.Fact CheckPosition: WRExperience: 3rd seasonAge: 23Height/Weight: 6’2”, 203 lbsCollege: PittsburghStat ReviewAfter two seasons of being limited to coming off of the bench on a limited offense, Boyd has exploded onto the scene through the first quarter of the 2018 season. With Cincinnati’s aerial attack clicking Super Bowl Isaiah Prince Jersey , Boyd has been thrust into a starting roll and has thrived as A.J. Green’s partner in crime. Across from Green, Boyd has compiled 26 receptions for 349 yards and two touchdowns across four contests. He also has one rushing attempt for five yards. With starting tight end Tyler Eifert going down last week, Boyd will be even more heavily relied on in the passing game, meaning his statistical production is sure to balloon further.Key MatchupsAs I mentioned above, the Dolphins have endured an unfortunate number injures in such a short period of time. The team has lost starting guard Josh Sitton, starting center Daniel Kilgore, starting tight end MarQueis Gray Football Isaiah Prince Jersey , and run-stopping maven William Hayes to season ending injuries. On top of that, defensive end Andre Branch, wide receiver DeVante Parker, safety Reshad Jones, and tight end A.J. Derby have all missed (or will miss) significant time. Yet, there’s one specific injury that will be a major detriment in Miami’s attempt to stifle Boyd, and that is to Bobby McCain’s knee.McCain Isaiah Prince Jersey nfl draft , Miami’s #2 cornerback, went down against the Patriots last week with a knee injury that is likely to sideline him for several games. With McCain out and budding star Xavien Howard likely to have his hands full with Green, the Dolphins will need to rely on Torry McTyer to cover Boyd. While McTyer has proven himself serviceable, he simply doesn’t have the experience or polish of McCain, meaning the Dolphins may have to provide him with extra help from defensive backs Minkah Fitzpatrick and Reshad Jones (if Jones is available to play this weekend). Whatever defensive coordinator Matt Burke cooks up, it will have to be creative to cover up what is shaping out to be a depleted roster. MIAMI (AP) 鈥?Even though Frank Gore‘s ironman streak is about to end, he wants to keep going.The injured Miami Dolphins running back has decided against retirement and hopes to play a 15th NFL season next year Chandler Cox Miami Dolphins Jerseys , a person familiar with the situation said Friday. The person confirmed the decision to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because Gore had not commented publicly.The NFL's leading active rusher suffered a season-ending sprained foot last week against Minnesota , but the injury won't require surgery. The 35-year-old Gore has played in 126 consecutive games with 122 starts in a row.Those streaks are the longest by an NFL offensive skill player, and they'll end Sunday when Miami plays Jacksonville .More Miami Dolphins newsMaking it official: Dolphins hire Super Bowl-winning Patriots assistant Brian Flores as 13th head coach in franchise historyJaguars CB Jalen Ramsey catches a TD on offense as AFC thumps NFC in rainy Pro Bowl in OrlandoDolphins meet again with Patriots assistant Brian FloresDolphins must wait until after Super Bowl to seal deal with Patriots LB coach Brian FloresFormer Dolphins six-time Pro Bowl selection Bob Kuechenberg dies at age 71Last week Gore said he was uncertain whether he wanted to play next year. He signed a one-year contract in March with the Dolphins, and another season with his hometown team is a possibility."We'll sit down after the season is over. We're not in a rush right now," coach Adam Gase said. "There were times in the season where I could tell he's not ready to be close to it being done. We'll sit down and talk about everything and figure it out."Gore leads the Dolphins with 722 yards rushing, and his average of 4.6 yards per carry is his highest since 2012. He went on injured reserve Wednesday."It's disappointing considering the amount of games, the amount of starts that he's had in a row Miami Dolphins Jerseys 2019 ," Gase said. "I wish he could've finished this out."Gore is fourth on the NFL's all-time rushing list with 14,748 yards, and fifth in yards from scrimmage. Since turning 32 in 2015, he's the league's fifth-leading rusher."He's a special person; he's a special player," Gase said. "It's hard to find somebody that's really done anything comparable to him, especially the way football is now and how he's run early in his career. To last this long and then to produce the way he has at this age is just something you just probably won't ever see again."
