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 Green Bay Packers Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

Water is wet, Brock Osweiler isn’t that good, and the Miami Dolphins have to be the unluckiest football team this season. Every week there is an injury to a key starter and I have never seen anything like it before. The Dolphins were without Laremy Tunsil and Ja’Wuan James as both were injured last week against the Jets. Jakeem Grant was carted off as the wide receiver was already dealing with an Achilles injury. The Dolphins are on a bye next week which gives them time for some players to heal up and hopefully the return of Ryan Tannehill.

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