The Miami Dolphins have been plagued by an injury bug this season and the team took another big hit on Sunday when they lost Nik Needham for the season with a torn Achilles. Kader Kohou, a promising undrafted free agent, was inactive against the Minnesota Vikings and Keion Crossen had to leave the game with a knee injury. This meant Noah Igbinoghene had to step in and it left fans nervous. Igbinoghene has been a disappointment since joining the team as a first round selection back in 2020. Against the Vikings, it started out bad with a pass interference call as soon as he entered the game. But by the end of the game, he did a heck of a job covering Adam Thielen and did not allow a catch on two targets.

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