Davone Bess Injury News: Dolphins WR Recovered From Serious Knee Injury

The Miami Dolphins continued their voluntary minicamp on Tuesday and one of the most prominent presences was wide receiver Davone Bess. The Dolphins receiver injured his knee in the fourth quarter of the team's season finale matchup with the New York Jets. Today he acknowledged that the injury was more serious than previously acknowledged.

It turns out Bess had a a second-degree torn medial collateral ligament and a partially torn anterior cruciate ligament following the Bart Scott tackle. Bess told the media he was fortunate that the ligaments were in the right place after the injury and only needed time to heal, as opposed to surgery.

The Dolphins will be counting on big things from Davone Bess as they look to move past the loss of Brandon Marshall. Bess will compete for catches with Brian Hartline and Legedu Naanee, as well as any rookie receivers picked up over the next three days.
