According to multiple reports tonight, Miami Dolphins reserve offensive tackle Will Yeatman has suffered a knee injury.  The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson is reporting that Yeatman has torn his ACL and will be sidelined for the remainder of the season.  The injury appears to have happened during the team's Wednesday practice.

Yeatman has been used as a sixth offensive lineman over the pas couple of weeks, lining up as an eligible tackle.  The converted tight end has only played 17 snaps on the season, but, with Miami's lack of depth along the offensive line, especially with tackle Jonathan Martin in California and guard Richie Incognito suspended, the loss of Yeatman is a big one.

At this point, the Dolphins only have rookie Dallas Thomas, Danny Watkins, and David Arkin, all guards, on the roster behind Bryant McKinnie, Nate Garner, Mike Pouncey, John Jerry, and Tyson Clabo.  Center Sam Brenner and tackle Jason Weaver on the practice squad.
