    Oh man... That's a total bummer. A key injury along the offensive line... Who do you think they will play? Probably Spriggs huh?

    Actually the word is that it'll be the rook, Mckinney.
    I hope he's ready.

    Gulp! I'm not a spriggs fan so on the one hand I am glad its not him, BUT a Rookie...? Comming into 2 big games and then hopefully the playoffs, thats a tall task to ask... Let's hope the kid is a phenom.

    the players are saying McKinney is one of the future starters on this team.......they just didn't think the future would get here so quick........they do have alot of faith in the kid though.....

    McKinney has reportedly practiced at guard, so he won't be new to the position. And the Viking game will be a good chance to get him into the flow for the playoff run.

    That said, this was a terrible blow. Jamie Nails was Pro Bowl bound, in my opinion.

    The J. Nails Appreciation Thread

    I think we all need to give OG J. Nails his credit. He has overcome adversity, and has turned out to be one of the best OL we've seen in years.....

    Even though he is out for the season, J. Nails deserves a ton of credit for helping the Phinz become one, if not the best running team in the NFL. I know he would have made the Pro Bowl....

    We'll miss you Jamie. Get well soon, and here's to a speedy recovery....

    YOU ROCK!!!

    PHINZ RULE!!!!:fire:

    Losing Nails is as big as losing a star like Chambers or Fiedler on our team, this guy means so much and we cannot afford to lose him at this point....I sure hope McKinnie is ready.

    This loss bothers me alot! He was one of our stars...good thing that we got Minnesota next and it could be a tune-up for McKinnie, his replacement.

    I agree it's a big loss, I watched the whole game again on tape last night and focused on Nails, we are definitly losing a major contributer to our offense. Lets hope the rest of the O-line steps it up and wins the super bowl for Jamie. Worse things have happened to super bowl teams.

    I feel bad for Jamie Nails..

    but I think I feel worse for his bathroom scales. After months of forced inactivity, I shudder to imagine how large he's going to get. Hopefully he can keep himself under control and come back healthy next year. He's gonna be missed this year!

    not Fiedler, but probably Chambers. I am sure we will have to eliminate a running play or two with a rookie in a LG :(

    Nails out for season

    This may be old news but i heard on the evening news that G Jamie Nails is out for the rest of the season.Please post a link if anyone has one.If its true,and most likely it is,then this is a big blow to the O-Line and our running and passing game.

    :eek: :cry:

    I hate it. I just hope he is ready for training camp, but I don't think so. Remember, Dan never came all the way back from his Achilles. Man, those Achilles injuries have really been our Achilles heels.

    McKinney is a rookie, but he brings lots of smarts to the position. He will make a mistake or get burned by some pro-bowl caliber opponent's technique or something somewhere along the way, but the thing you can have confidence in is that he will NOT make the same mistake twice.

    He's a bright guy from a bright family. His dad was in George W. Bush's cabinet when he was gov of Texas, then became chief of staff to his successor.

    I wonder how ChicagoDolfan feels about all that?;)

    One thing that seth does bring to the table is atheltism. He was one of the most athletic lineman in the draft this year and had the fastest 40 time so he should be able to get around the corner and lead some outside runs.

    Who are we going to sign to replace him? We have no backup G's and will have to sign one. Who though?

    Davster, I'm assuming you already have, but if not, ... slap yourself for that one.

    Thanks.

    Dolphins | McKinney To Start - posted at KFFL (http://nfl.kffl.com)
    21:34 PT: The AP reports Miami Dolphins OL Seth McKinney will start at left guard this week in place of injured LG Jamie Nails (Achilles' tendon).

    Dolphins | Andrew To Get Promoted - posted at KFFL (http://nfl.kffl.com)
    21:16 PT: The Sun Sentinel reports the Miami Dolphins will sign G Troy Andrew from the practice squad, as soon as OL Jamie Nails (Achilles' tendon) is placed on IR.

    Andrews is certainly reliable enough
