But the Dolphins have received some very bad news today, as it was revealed that one defensive player suffered a serious-looking injury.

Dolphins safety Louis Delmas was carted off the field after he suffered an apparent knee injury in practice today.
According to a report from the Miami Herald, Delmas was in coverage during the Dolphins’ joint practice with the Panthers when he went down and grabbed his right knee.
Delmas tore his right ACL last year and if it has happened again then the safety can wave goodbye to taking to the football field in the entire of the 2015 season.
The Dolphins have been practicing with the Carolina Panthers today and the session must have been cursed, as Panthers star Kelvin Benjamin went down with a serious looking knee injury of his own.
Benjamin appeared to twist his left leg during a 1 on 1 drill while trying to make a cut, and went down without contact, which is never a good sign. He immediately grabbed his knee, and was taken from the field on the cart.
