Bad news for the Dolphins. Star safety Reshad Jones has been ruled out for the rest of the season, according to Armando Salguero of The Miami Herald (on Twitter). Jones will be placed on IR.

Earlier this week, we learned that the Dolphins feared that Jones suffered a torn rotator cuff. Apparently, their worst fears were confirmed by doctors on Wednesday morning.

Jones, 28, has 51 total tackles, four passes defensed, one interception, and even half a sack through six games this season. The advanced metrics at Pro Football Focus have him ranked as the third-best safety in the NFL so far this year with a strong 88.5 overall grade. Miami has been leaning on him heavily as evidenced by his 437 total snaps this season.

The Bills are next up for the 2-4 Dolphins. The Bills are riding a four-game winning streak and Miami will try to snap it without the services of one of their very best defensive players.
