Sad news - the ageless wonder was putting together yet another impressive campaign for his age. Gotta wonder if he'll call it quits to his HOF career.

From a Dolphins perspective, this means more Kenyan Drake and Kalen Balladge, so this is probably a good thing now that our post-season hopes are all but over.

He'll be the 13th Dolphin to the IR this season.

That's it?

Prior to yesterday, Washington was at 20 (two returned via designation), and it looks like they'll add two more today.

How serious is this injury?

He is only 521 yards rushing behind Barry Sanders for third all time. Another 1,457 on top of that (1,978 total) behind Walter Payton for #2, so extremely unlikely to happen in one more season although possible in another 2 if he doesn't decline too much.

Also, he is only 610 yards behind Marshall Faulk for fourth all time in total APY. He is currently 2,720 yards behind Walter Payton for third all time, so unlikely to have ever reached that without playing at his current pace for another ~2.7 full years without the injury this year.

Would love to see him come back for one more season, pass those two, and win a SB.
