Just after being named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week for Week 13 Womens Jakeem Grant Jersey , Dolphins cornerback Xavien Howard has been ruled out of the team’s Week 14 game. The NFL’s interceptions leader will not be on the field as the Dolphins try to stop Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.The Dolphins really just cannot have nice things.“We just haven’t gotten him out there moving around,” head coach Adam Gase said of Howard and what is wrong with his knee. “I’m not going to 鈥?especially against these guys. He’s got to feel good with all of his movement skills – lateral – his ability to protect himself. You’ve got guys trying to cut him and things like that and you can’t do that. We’ll give it another run next week and see where we’re at and we’ll go from there.”Defensive coordinator Matt Burke said of playing without Howard this weekend, speaking on Thursday before Howard was officially ruled out. “Obviously, he’s a great player,” Burke stated. “He’s been outstanding for us this year. Any time you have the possibility of not playing with one of your better, if not best, players, it’s 鈥?But that’s this league. We’ve had a lot of injuries. We’ve dealt with those things and it doesn’t do me any good to worry about my feelings about it. If he’s available to play, he’ll play and if he’s not, he’s not. Whoever is out on the field has to get some stops. I try not to spend too much time examining my feelings. I could probably do a lot of woe-is-me from the whole season. It doesn’t really matter. We’ll play with the guys that are ready to play. If ‘X’ is one of them, that’ll be great. Hopefully he’ll continue his great season. If not, we’ll figure it out with the rest of them.”The Dolphins also ruled out center Jake Brendel, who re-injured his calf, an injury that had him start the season on injured reserve before being one of Miami’s two designated to return players for the season. Brendel is the third center Miami has used this year, with Daniel Kilgore starting the season before landing on injured reserve. Travis Swanson then took over the starting role, with Brendel at left guard in place of Josh Sitton and Ted Larsen http://www.miamidolphinsteamonline.com/daniel-kilgore-jersey , both of whom had been injured playing that position. Larsen is now back at left guard and the Dolphins are hopeful Swanson will be back to replace Brendel at center.Listing him as questionable for the game, Gase said of Swanson’s ability for the weekend, “I mean he had a good week. I hope he can go because we’re low on numbers.”Miami’s fourth player on the injury report is wide receiver Danny Amendola, who has a knee issue, but seems determined to play against his former club. Offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains said of Amendola on Thursday, “The guy, he’s so competitive. He’s so tough. It’s all about team for him. Whatever he can do to help the team, he’s going to do. He’s very unselfish that way. If he can’t go, then he can’t go and he’ll be the first one to tell you; but he’s going to fight and claw and scratch to get out there, because it is about the team. He works his tail off and that competitive spirit we talked about five or six weeks ago just shows up with him all the time.”Gase, on Friday, seemed optimistic that Amendola will be available for the offense on Sunday, saying, “Yeah, I think he did everything he could this week. We got him moving around and running a lot of different routes. It gives us a chance.”The Patriots side of the injury report was surprisingly short given New England’s tendency to list every player possible on the report this late in the season. They only listed tight end Dwayne Allen (knee) and cornerback Stephon Gilmore (ankle) on the report, both categorized as questionable.The Patriots and Dolphins will kickoff at 1pm ET on Sunday from Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium. Miami (6-6) will be looking to avenge a Week 4 blow-out loss to the Patriots and keep themselves in the running for the Playoffs. The Patriots (9-3) can win the AFC East division title for the tenth straight season with a win and keep the pressure on the Kansas City Chiefs for the top spot in the AFC playoffs Womens Laremy Tunsil Jersey , including homefield advantage throughout the post season tournament.Lightning Delays A Case Of Ridiculous Overkill As of this writing, we are still waiting, after about three hours worth of delays, in two installments, for the Miami Dolphins to resume their game at Hard Rock Stadium against the Tennessee Titans. Three hours, as you’re probably aware, is about the length of a typical NFL game -- including halftime and all TV timeouts. Looking at the technical aspects of the phenomenon that we refer to as lightning, there are two basic types: cloud-to-cloud and cloud-to-ground. While it’s obviously the latter that we’re concerned with, the presence of one generally results in the presence of the other. Here’s the problem, though, at least as it relates to the likelihood, or even the possibility, of a lightning strike injuring a player or fan at a sporting venue like Hard Rock Stadium: because the Dolphins’ home stadium now has a roof affixed to the top of it, and because lightning almost always strikes the highest point in a given vicinity when it reaches the earth, it would be virtually impossible for a bolt to come down from the skies above Dade County, pass through the rectangular aperture in the stadium’s roof and strike a player or official on the field of play below.That’s number one; number two is that with the fans attending the game almost completely protected by the recently installed roof above the stadium Womens Frank Gore Jersey , it would would be even more prohibitively unlikely for a bolt to descend from the sky above, pass through the opening in the roof over the stadium and then make an ‘L’ shaped turn and strike an unsuspecting fan who is sitting in the stands. In other words, it would have to be a pretty smart bolt to take that kind of electrical path. Any meteorologist would tell us that even if a bolt of lightning were to strike near the top of the stadium, it would, based simply on the laws of physics, hit the top of the superstructure that supports the roof, rather than passing through the roof and down onto the field or fan concourse below.Now, I understand that the league has to err on the side of caution in cases like this, and to be sure, about 35 people are killed every year in the U.S. by lighting. We can all agree that it would be absolutely catastrophic if someone were struck by an errant bolt of lightning from the heavens above, but this, to me, amounts to a case of ridiculous overkill on the part of the NFL. After all, if we’re worried about someone being injured or killed by a lightning strike, then, theoretically Authentic Matt Haack Jersey , couldn’t someone have died from hypothermia in the 1967 ‘Ice Bowl’ in Green Bay in the legendary championship game between the Cowboys and Packers?How about that AFC Championship game in January 1982, at Cincinnati, between the Chargers and Bengals? But then again, this isn’t 1967 or 1982, this is 2018, and in 2018, and what took place at Hard Rock Stadium on Sunday afternoon is emblematic of our society today. When we come upon a fly, our reaction is to go and get ourselves the biggest, heaviest sledgehammer we can find and make darn sure we kill that fly.Since I don’t live in South Florida, and this game is not being televised in Chicago, I don’t know how close the storm was to the stadium, or how much lightning activity was actually taking place; I’d like to hear from our readers who were at the game or were watching it on television, and hear your thoughts on this.
