The Splash Zone 10/8/16: Xavien Howard Ruled Out For Sunday

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 Dolphins will be without rookie cornerback Xavien Howard on Sunday. Howard had surgery on his meniscus and is out indefinitely. The second round pick was flashing some potential as a starter but it's always terrible to see a player go down with an injury. Byron Maxwell figures to resume starting again after being benched last week.

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