It's been an odd season for the Miami Dolphins and it seems like things won't be getting much easier for them.
That comes after backup quarterback Matt Moore managed to have his nose broken by a teammate during practice, leaving him potentially needing surgery to correct the break.
The injury wasn't a result of interim head coach Dan Campbell's more aggressive practices, though. No, it was on a simple hand-off.

The Worst Luck
According to a report from Chris Perkins of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Moore somehow managed to catch an elbow to the face from wide receiver Kenny Stills while trying to hand off in a practice drill.
Think about this. The players would have all been in pads and Moore wearing a helmet with a grill on it. And, somehow, Stills' elbow managed to make its way through the grill and into Moore's poor, defenseless nose which got busted open.
“We were kind of going different speeds and had a fake handoff going one way, and [I] tried to hand it off going the other way and I just caught his elbow. Or his elbow caught me,” Moore said.
Moore even went on to say himself that it will probably never happen again, which is almost certainly a good thing for the Dolphins.
“Has it happened to anybody before? Probably not. It was kind of a one in a million deal. But that’s all it was.”
It's not quite I.K Enemkpali clocking Geno Smith in the jaw, but it's still an incredible anecdote nevertheless.
