Earlier today, we learned that Bills cornerback Leodis McKelvin suffered a fractured ankle during last night’s loss in Miami, but McKelvin wasn’t the only player to sustain a significant injury during the game. Here’s the latest out of the AFC East, including an update on a Dolphin whose 2014 season is over:
- As first reported by James Walker of ESPN.com (via Twitter), Dolphins cornerback Will Davis tore his ACL against the Bills, and will be sidelined for the rest of the season. Davis hadn’t seen the field much on defense in recent weeks, but the team will miss his contributions on special teams.
- Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin confirmed to reporters, including Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald (Twitter link), that Davis will be placed on injured reserve soon. However, the club isn’t overly concerned about its depth at cornerback and will evaluate over the weekend whether to add a corner to replace Davis or use the newly-available roster spot to bolster another position (Twitter link via Walker).
- As Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk details, Bills head coach Doug Marrone doesn’t feel as if he’s coaching for his job. Still, having taken over as the Bills’ owners earlier this season, Terry Pegula and Kim Pegula will likely be keeping a close eye on Marrone’s performance the rest of the way, with changes possible at year’s end.
- While it’s too early to call the Jets‘ 2014 draft a bust, the early returns on the 12 players selected by the team haven’t been great, writes Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com.
