The Dolphins could be without Davon Godchaux for the rest of the season. The starting defensive lineman suffered a biceps injury and is getting a second opinion on it before determining if he will be back this year or not. Reports are that he will miss a few months and don’t rule out him being back by the end of the year. Since the beginning of the 2018 season, Godchaux has started every game for the Dolphins and this injury comes at a bad time as he is in the final year of his rookie deal.
