Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours

The Miami Dolphins and Reshad Jones are waiting on a second opinion to see how bad Jones' injury is. Reports came out Monday evening that the star safety suffered a torn rotator cuff.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day's round-up below.
