Dolphins Present DT Tony McDaniel With Ed Block Courage Award

Alex Trautwig

The Miami Dolphins have named defensive tackle Tony McDaniel the winner of the Ed Block Courage Award. The award goes annually to the player who fought through significant adversity during the season. McDaniel came back from injury twice this year.

Miami Dolphins reserve defensive tackle Tony McDaniel was presented the Ed Block Courage Award today. The award is presented to the player who fought through adversity for each NFL team. McDaniel had to overcome two injuries to his right knee this year.

McDaniel was originally injured during the preseason and had to have his knee scoped after Week 1. He returned to action in Week 5 before being injured again in Week 8. McDaniel would miss the next game, as well as the team's Week 11 game, trying to get over the injury.

The seven year veteran would record 11 tackles, 0.5 sacks, one pass defensed, and one fumble recovery this season. McDaniel is a free agent this March, the end of the current league year.
