It's all fun and game until somebody gets hurt. The Dolphins and Panthers were hoping for an injury free practice during their joint practices, which was being held today and one tomorrow.

Starting safety Louis Delmas suffered an apparent right knee injury and was carted off the practice field. This is the same knee that landed Delmas on injured reserve last season. Delmas tore his ACL in his right knee near the end of last season. The one knock on Delmas is that he has never been able to stay healthy, but he is a great personality to have in the locker room. The irony of the situation, Delmas was in coverage against Ted Ginn Jr.

*UPDATE* Reports are Delmas has suffered a torn ACL, his second in nine months. A terrible injury for a guy that loves the game. He is done for the year and maybe his career.

Walt Aikens is currently working with the first team defense now. The second year player out of Liberty has impressed the coaches this offseason with his "maturation". Aikens was suspended in week 17, last season, for unspecified violation of team rules.

On the Carolina front, Kelvin Benjamin was also carted off with what looked to be a knee injury. Initial test revealed Benjamin has a sprained left knee. He will be heading for an MRI later today.
