He made a brief trip to the medical tent then returned to stand on the sideline without his helmet as the Dolphins listed him as questionable to return with an ankle injury.
Miami’s offense struggled without him on the field and failed to score as the Dolphins went into halftime trailing, 10-7. The Dolphins’ only score arrived via a pick-6 of Will Levis by defensive lineman Zach Sieler inside the Tennessee five-yard line.
