Miami Dolphins tight end Dustin Keller emailed NFL Networks' Ian Rapoport tonight after havign torn his ACL, PCL, and MCL during yesterday's game against the Houston Texans.

Miami Dolphins tight end Dustin Keller was carted off the field during last night's game against the Houston Texans. He had been attempting to pull in a Ryan Tannehill pass when Texans cornerback D.J. Swearinger hit him in the knee, which, it was ultimately discovered, had torn Keller's right ACL, MCL, and PCL, as well as dislocating the knee.

Today, Keller emailed NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

"I just want everyone to know that as disappointing as this is I don't want anybody feeling sorry for me. It's going to be a hard road back, but I promise I'm going to come back stronger, faster and be a better player than before.

"I'm very confident that my team is going to have a great season and even though I won't be on the field this year I am behind my guys 100%! More than anything, I'd like to thank all my family, friends and teammates for their prayers and support. I'm glad to have the support system in my life that I do."
