The Dolphins were a tad banged up heading into the game with the Chiefs on Sunday and left the game even more banged up. The top three options on offense all left the game at some point with an injury. Mike Gesicki injured his shoulder and needed some help getting off the field. Still not sure on how much time he will miss but everyone is expected it to be a couple of weeks. Jakeem Grant is dealing with a hamstring injury that will be week-to-week and DeVante Parker had some sort of leg injury which kept him out for the second half. Injuries are part of the game, but it just seems like the Dolphins are getting hammered with them right now.

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