The Splash Zone 3/3/17: Dolphins Uncertain On Isa Abdul-Quddus Health For 2017

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 may be looking for safety help this offseason as the Dolphins are a little uncertain with Isa Abdul-Quddus health. It was reported yesterday that the safety may not be able to play in 2017 after suffering a neck injury in December. The injury was described as a stretched-nerve but he has been experiencing swelling in the neck which will cause concern for his play in 2017 or his playing career. It would be a big blow to a player who was really starting to show up on defense.
