The Dolphins lost WR Armon Binns for the season yesterday when Binns went down with a torn MCL and ACL. Binns had been a bit gimpy since Saturday but yesterday the kid finally went down for good, thus losing out on his bid to become the 4th WR on the active roster. Binns was slated to get some good playing time this season after having a somewhat promising 2012 campaign but it just goes to show you that that #19 jersey TROLLS ALL AND JUST AIN’T CARE. Tough break for the kid but now it’s ‘next man up’ as the Dolphins will rely on camp standout Marvin McNutt along with a couple of things called a ‘Rishard Matthews’ and a ‘Jeff Fuller’. The Dolphins will also bring in last year’s offseason prized WR-free-agent-cum-in-season-gelatinous-goo-brain, Laurent Robinson, for a workout. Hmph.
Worst of all for Binns is that he was clearly the front runner in our annual J.R. Tolver Award and this injury will eliminate him from that prestigious honor. I’m sure he’s more disappointed about that than anything else concerning this injury, really.
There’s always next year!
Tonight is the team scrimmage ‘dress rehearsal’ at Sun Life at 7pm. I went to one of these in 2003 and, Jesus Christ, it was boring.
Programming note: The Dude (along with Rizz and Adam Smoot) were on a Page Q podcast recently talkin Dolphins. Bang it here.
