New, comments

During the Miami Dolphins 24-20 loss to the Dallas Cowboys last night, third string quarterback Pat Devlin left the game with an injury. According to a report, that injury is a hand injury and could not continue in the game.

In a highly confusing moment during last night's Hall of Fame Game, Miami Dolphins quarterback Matt Moore, who had already completed his time in the game, suddenly rejoined the contest with about four minutes left to play. Given how late in the game it was, NBC was well into their interviews with Hall of Fame inductees (and Dallas Cowboys players), and there was little explanation as to why Moore re-entered the game.

Initially, it was thought third string quarterback Pat Devlin, who was running the offense at the time, was sidelined with a foot injury. However, Omar Kelly of the Sun Sentinel, is now reporting that it was actually a hand injury that ended Devlin's day.

He finished the game with 86 yards and a touchdown on 8-for-13 passing. Kelly stated that Devlin was not allowed to return to the game by the team's trainers.

While the seriousness of the injury to Devlin is still unknown, the Dolphins could be looking to add another quarterback to the roster. The team released Aaron Corp last week to make space for wide receiver Andrell Smith on the roster, but could consider bringing him back.
