Dolphins lose Branden Albert for the year with a torn ACL; Placed on I/R
Left tackle Branden Albert, easily their best offensive player, injured his knee and is believed to have suffered ACL and MCL tears. Today the Miami Dolphins placed him on injured reserve ending his season.
Albert took to Instagram on Monday to express gratitude for his supporters, vowing to “come back stronger and better.”
The loss is a massive blow to the Dolphins’ offensive line. They moved first-round pick Ja’Wuan James to left tackle, and they will be far weaker at right tackle. Albert was playing at an All-Pro level and the Dolphins welcome Buffalo’s nasty defensive line into Miami on Thursday night.
