The Splash Zone 9/25/18: Dolphins Lose William Hayes For The Season

Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours. The Miami Dolphins have lost one of their key defensive lineman for the season. William Hayes will be shut down with a torn ACL after he registered a sack against Derek Carr on Sunday. Apparently Hayes was trying not to put all his body weight into the hit to protect Carr from any major injury. Turns out by doing that, Hayes somehow tore his ACL as he was trying not to get penalized for sacking the quarterback. You can check...

Who deserves the game ball after the Dolphins 28-20 victory over the Raiders

It was unlike any win we saw this season. In a day that was plagued by injuries, Akeem Spence getting tossed, and the men in black and white being a bit more generous to the opposition, the Dolphins did the unthinkable. They found a way to win late, in remarkable fashion. Miami trailed heading into the 4th quarter, but that would change in the blink of an eye. After an Oakland Raiders’ punt that gave the Dolphins good field position, Ryan Tannehill scrambled for a first down. The very next play, Adam Gase dug deep into his arsenal of tricks, and called a play that would put the...

William Hayes injury costs Dolphins defensive lineman season

The Miami Dolphins have lost defensive end William Hayes for the season with an ACL injury, according to head coach Adam Gase. Hayes was injured during the team’s 28-20 win over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday. He sacked quarterback Derek Carr early in the second quarter, with his knee appearing to buckle slightly just as the two players were heading to the ground and the defensive lineman tried to adjust himself to avoid landing with his full body weight on the quarterback. Hayes immediately reached toward his leg, then crawled in pain through the endzone before trainers came out to get...


T.J. Clemmings subs at right tackle in Raiders’ loss

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — T.J. Clemmings’ first game experience with the Raiders came suddenly. With starting right tackle Donald Penn being evaluated for a concussion in the second quarter Sunday, Clemmings entered and played the rest of the way in Oakland’s 28-20 loss to the Dolphins. “We’re mentally prepared for it,” Clemmings, 26, said of playing as a backup. “It is tough. You want to be able to go in there and help the team get to a victory.” Clemmings, whom the Raiders claimed off waivers on Sept. 2 from Pittsburgh, played in six games, making two starts, last year in...

Raiders vs. Dolphins second half open thread

For the third week in a row, the Oakland Raiders hold a halftime lead. They are up 10-7 in Miami. The only touchdown for the Raiders came on a 12-yard pass from Derek Carr to Jordy Nelson, who has dominated Miami’s secondary so far with four catches for a ridiculous 151 yards. Carr is 10/15 for 197 yards passing and doesn’t seem shy about going deep. The Raiders have had a few injuries in this game, as Donald Penn is being looked at for a concussion and Karl Joseph is out with a lower leg injury. But the defense has played well, holding Miami to only 14 yards rushing and 112 yards...
