As an update to previous reports, the Sun-Sentinel reports Miami Dolphins LB Scott Gaylon (thumb) has ligament damage in his thumb, not a broken thumb like originally believed. Head coach Dave Wannstedt said he should be ready for the teamÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s regular season opener September 8.
Bowens Forced To Leave
The Sun-Sentinel reports Miami Dolphins DE David Bowens (hand) was forced to leave MondayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s practice after hitting his hand on a teammateÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s helmet. X-rays were taken, but the results wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t be known until later on Tuesday.
Defensive end David Bowens broke the top of his left hand when he hit it against a teammate's helmet Monday night in practice. Bowens underwent surgery Tuesday that will sideline him for about three weeks, but the Dolphins expect him back for the Indianapolis Game week 2, if not the Lions game opening day.
Bowens had already made this team..remember he was named the starter prior to hurting his Hammy...He got back in and then broke his hand...I glad it's only 3 weeks...this kid can play..Miami just can't get a break..no pun intended..when it comes to injuries.
D. Bowens was expected to start at DE opposite J. Taylor this season. He'll be back, and he'll be fine. It was nothing that needs any kind of major rehabing or strengthening, and he should return in time for the opener.....
