The preseason, season-ending injury year from hell continues. The next team to get hit is the Miami Dolphins.
It is being reported that Dolphins TE Dustin Keller will miss the entire 2013 season due to a serious knee injury. Adam Schefter was told by a source that Keller tore his ACL, MCL, PCL and also dislocated his kneecap. Ouch.
That seems pretty bad, but the following tweet from Armando Salguero makes it sound devastating.
Three torn ligaments and a dislocated kneecap for Dustin Keller. Docs also fear nerve damage. Career is on the line.

Career ending? Nerve damage? Just awful. We wish Dustin the best and we all hope he fully recovers from this injury.
This leaves the Dolphins extremely vulnerable at the tight end position. They brought in Keller to replace Anthony Fasano who left the team via free agency. The Dolphins are left with virtually no experience at tight end. Michael Egnew, Kyle Miller and rookie Dion Sims will now fight for the starting job. Unfortuantely for the Dolphins, none of those three guys has caught a pass in a regular season game.
