NFL: AUG 19 Preseason - Dolphins at Texans Photo by Leslie Plaza Johnson/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images

During the course of the Houston Texans game, the Miami Dolphins sustained a couple more injuries to their roster. Quarterback Mike White is in concussion protocol meaning Skylar Thompson should see plenty of offensive snaps when the Dolphins play the Jacksonville Jaguars on Saturday unless White can clear the five-step process to get out of the protocol. James Blackmon was brought back though and will probably see a little bit of time during the game.

The offense has even more injuries as rookie running back, De’Von Achane is week-to-week with a shoulder injury, and guard, Robert Jones, will be sidelined for a while with an MCL sprain.

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