The Miami Dolphins lead the Cincinnati Bengals 14-6 in the third quarter of their Week 5 matchup. Miami cornerback Nolan Carroll has had to leave the game following a helmet-to-helmet hit with Karlos Dansby and is now being evaluated for a concussion.

Miami Dolphins cornerback Nolan Carroll has had to leave the team's game against the Cincinnati Bengals with a possible concussion. Carroll started the game in place of the injured Richard Marshall today.

Carroll was injured during a helmet-to-helmet hit with teammate Karlos Dansby as the two players made a tackle. Carroll immediately fell to the ground, with his hands on his helmet. The injury happened right next to the Dolphins sidelines, and the training staff was immediately there.

Carroll left the field under his own power, and is currently being evaluated for a concussion. R.J. Stanford has taken Carroll's position as the base cornerback opposite Sean Smith. Jimmy Wilson continues to play as the Miami nickel cornerback.

Miami also has rookie corner De'Andre Presley active for today's game. Presely played quarterback, wide receiver, and corner at Appalachian State last year.
