A training camp with injuries and concerns continued Thursday night in Miami in the preseason win over the Falcons 23-20, as rookie linebacker Raekwon McMillan hurt his knee in the first half. Now, the Dolphins hold their breath on how bad.
McMillan, the Fins second round pick, was injured during a punt in the first half and had to be helped to the sideline.

Shortly after the conclusion of the game, Miami head coach Adam Gase said they don’t know the severity yet of the knee injury to All-Big Ten defensive star who led Ohio State in tackles a year ago with 102.
But here was a telling/concerning update post-game:
Raekwon McMillan is leaving the locker room on crutches and wearing a knee brace.

McMillian, joined rookie first round defensive end Charles Harris in making their debuts, albeit in the preseason, for the Dolphins. And, it was quickly cut short.
McMillian’s injury comes after a week that saw starting quaterback Ryan Tannehill re-injure his rehabbed left ACL and likely will miss significant time and/or the whole season. And, stud running back Jay Ajayi missed this week of camp with a concussion and isn’t cleared yet, to resume football duties.
Now, the Dolphins wait for the MRI, etc. on McMillian to determine his status.
