The start of the season can’t come soon enough for the Miami Dolphins.
They keep losing players in training camp, and it seems like HC Mike McDaniel should just bubble-wrap their stars until the first game of the year.
First, it was star CB Jalen Ramsey, who’s now expected to miss the first portion of the season.
Then, Jaylen Waddle suffered an injury to his midsection, and while he returned to practice, it was still a big scare.
Now, star LT Terron Armstead had to be carted off the field with a leg/ankle issue.
However, star wideout Tyreek Hill recently shed some light on his situation, trying to appease the fans by telling them that Armstead reached out to him to tell him he’s fine and that he’s just old.
"I'm straight, I'm just old."

Of course, this is great news, as entering the season without their best offensive lineman could be a disaster, especially considering how much they struggled to keep Tua Tagovailoa safe last season, even when he was on the field.
Armstead is one of the best tackles in the game, but he’s struggled with multiple injuries throughout his entire career, never even playing for a full season.
He had vowed to be on the field for all 17 regular season games in 2023 after missing plenty of time in the previous campaign.
And while that could still be the case, his team will be wise to keep him off the field for a while until he goes back to full strength, all things considered.NEXT: Key Dolphins Player Carted Off The Field With Apparent Leg Injury
