Dolphins Rookie A.J. Edds Blows Out Knee
A fourth-round draft pick for the Dolphins this year, Edds possessed speed and versatility that made him a lock for special teams and as a backup to Karlos Dansby. Edds was also slated to come in during third-downs and other coverage situations to guard tight ends and running backs.
The injury now means Austin Spitler and J.D. Folsom have a chance to step up and earn themselves the job. It also means the Dolphins will have to lean heavily on Channing Crowder and his uncanny ability to jump into a pile two seconds after the play is over during third down and passing situations.
So to recap: The Dolphins have so far lost defensive end Jason Taylor to the Jets, defensive end Phillip Merling to an Achilles tendon injury, Jason Ferguson to retirement, and A.J. Edds to a blown knee, yet Channing Crowder remains unscathed.
We can only hope this is just a bad dream within a dream within a dream.
