According to a report, Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Michael Deiter was not at practice on Thursday due to an injury.

The extent of Deiter’s injury is unknown, but it’s not a great sign to see him missing from practice this late in the week. Miami certainly wants to be as healthy as possible going into the weekend.

Deiter has started in every game for the Dolphins this season so far. He also appeared in all 16 games last season and all 16 games in the 2019 campaign.

Miami’s offensive line is one of the worst in the league at the moment, and the unit can’t afford to lose any key players. Time will tell if Deiter can return in a relatively quick fashion.

The Dolphins are set to host the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. Miami desperately needs a win.
