The Miami Dolphins have lost Pro Bowl left tackle Branden Albert to an injury against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Miami Dolphins have had to bring Jason Fox into the game for the second time against the Jacksonville Jaguars, this time for the remainder of the game. Fox first came into the game earlier in the first half when Albert appeared to have a hand injury. Albert returned to the game, but left limping late in the first 30-minute period.

The team has ruled him out for the rest of the game, describing the injury as a hamstring issue.

Albert joined the Dolphins before the 2014 season and appeared to be playing at the same level as his 2013 Pro Bowl performance, but a torn ACL and MCL ended his season early. Albert rehabbed throughout the offseason, and was able to start for Miami in Week 1 this year. He has, however, had to leave the game three times in the first six quarters of play. How serious the hamstring issue is still has to be seen, but it is not good news for Miami, who look got Albert and center Mike Pouncey to solidify the offensive line.
