Xavien Howard out 3-6 weeks - knee surgery

Post by JMP on Sat Oct 08, 2016 10:09 am

Awful news for a secondary that already sucks. Howard wasn't great, but he played pretty well and looks to have a bright future. He was clearly Miami's best corner already. Hopefully this isn't something that will be an issue long-term.

The starting cornerbacks against the Tennessee Titans Sunday for the Miami Dolphins?

Tony Lippett and Byron Maxwell.

Indeed, that will be the starting cornerback tandem for the next few weeks because Xavien Howard is out Sunday and will miss 3-6 weeks after having his meniscus repaired this week. The surgery was to the same knee that required surgery in June and caused Howard to miss all of training camp and the preseason.

Howard injured his knee in practice this week. He will remain on the active roster as the team is calling him "week to week."

Coach Adam Gase confirmed Howard had the surgery. Gase also confirmed Maxwell, who was benched last week at Cincinnati, is back in the starting lineup.

Miami secondary sucks and for the fact that they picked another injured player means that Miami not even tryinig.
