Hunter Long Miami Dolphins

Miami Dolphins rookie tight end Hunter Long was carted off the field with an apparent injury during practice on Sunday.

Initially, it was not known how long he would be out, but a new report has given some clarity on his injury.

The Dolphins selected Long in the third round of the 2021 NFL Draft. During his collegiate career at Boston College, the 22-year-old caught 89 passes for 1,297 yards and nine touchdowns.

Thankfully, Long’s injury does not seem like it will hold him out of his entire rookie campaign.

Miami’s first game of the preseason is on Aug. 14 against the Chicago Bears.
