The Splash Zone 11/8/17: How Bad Is Ja’Wuan James’ Hamstring Injury?

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.

NFL: Miami Dolphins at Buffalo Bills Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY Sports

The Dolphins added a tackle yesterday from the Cleveland Browns practice squad. Zach Sterup was added and may be a sign that Ja’Wuan James’ hamstring injury may not be that great. James was injured Sunday night and had to leave the game and his presence was missed on the right side as Jay Cutler was immediately sacked after James left the game. Ted Larsen is expected to be back at guard, meaning Jesse Davis could be starting at right tackle if James is unable to go.

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