Dolphins Updates for Ravens Game
Dolphins Updates 09/16/2022
Coach McDaniel held a press conference today in which Dolphins updates were given on Austin Jackson. McDaniel advised that Jackson had been placed on the short-term injured list. So, Jackson will miss a minimum of four games. Therefore, it looks like Greg Little will get the start at right tackle (RT). McDaniel thought Little played well in the Dolphins’ victory over the Patriots in week 1.
Left Tackle (LT) Terron Armstead is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Ravens according to McDaniel. His update may not be given by the Dolphins until game day. McDaniel said that Armstead has a high tolerance for pain. So, if he feels ready he will play. Also, McDaniel mentioned that he felt Center Collin Williams played well. Coach mentioned that Williams has confidence in his ability to play center. McDaniel touched on how he feels that Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa will continue to grow as he progresses through his career. So, Tua’s honesty about areas where he feels he needs help makes it easier to coach him.
Dolphins Updates from Local Media
Additional Dolphins updates from local media. Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald had some Dolphins updates. Barry noted that along with Armstead that Christian Wilkins, Hunter Long, Cedrick Wilson Jr., and Salvon Ahmed are all listed as questionable. Also, Barry noted that Tight End Cethan Carter has been ruled out for Sunday as part of concussion protocol. Carter sustained the injury in week 1.
Barry noted that the top four Ravens cornerbacks (CB) are listed on the Ravens’ injury status update. Ravens starting OT Ronnie Stanley is listed as doubtful.
Chris Perkins of the Sun Sentinel had in his Dolphins update that Tua had an average rating in one metric that measures “Intended Air Yards. (IAY)” Tua came in 12th in this rating for week 1. While Tua’s week 2 counterpart, Lamar Jackson, came in 1st for week one. Perkins advised that IAY/attempt is defined as average air yards per pass attempt, whether completed or not. Tua came in at 8.3 yards per attempt while Jackson came in at 12.0.
On a side note, it seems the Ravens are the strong favorites when it comes to “media types” making predictions. This is understandable since Miami has not played well in Baltimore over the past few years.
