Two teams with mirroring (4-5) records meet in Week 11 at Sun Life Stadium, as Miami and San Diego try and overcome long injury lists in hopes of staying in the American Football Conference’s playoff race.
Each year, countless picks from the NFL Draft step into the starting lineup to help their new team take the next step to either stay or become a contender. The Miami Dolphins were hoping that might happen to them this season, but it doesn’t look like that will happen to start the year.
The Miami Dolphins have signed three draft picks. Linebacker Jelani Jenkins, defensive back Don Jones and kicker Caleb Sturgis signed with the team on Wednesday.
The Miami Dolphins will get their first look at the incoming class of rookies Friday when the team holds a three-day minicamp.
Place-kicker Caleb Sturgis of Florida has been chosen by the Miami Dolphins in the fifth round of the NFL draft.
Linebacker Jelani Jenkins of Florida has been taken by the Miami Dolphins in the fourth round of the NFL draft.
Florida linebacker Jelani Jenkins has decided to forgo his senior season and enter the 2013 NFL Draft. Jenkins made the announcement Monday despite missing four games this season due to a foot injury.
Jelani Jenkins returned a blocked punt 36 yards for a touchdown with two seconds remaining and No. 7 Florida rallied in the closing minutes to beat Louisiana-Lafayette 27-20 on Saturday.
When Florida travels to Tennessee to play the Volunteers Saturday, they wil be doing it without two defensive players.
