‘Fins Jake Long On Injured Reserve

DAVIE (CBSMiami) – Just a day after being chosen to play in the Pro Bowl for the third consecutive year, Miami Dolphins left tackle Jake Long has been placed on injured reserve with a right arm injury. Done for the season, he’ll miss the final game Sunday against the Jets.

The decision was made Wednesday. Long endured an injury-plagued season, including a back ailment that forced him to miss two games after he started the first 61 games of his career.

Long suffered the arm injury in the first quarter of Saturday’s loss at New England.

The Dolphins signed running back Richard Medlin, from the practice squad, to fill Long’s spot on the roster. Medlin signed with New England as a rookie free agent in August and was released at the end of training camp.
