Terron Armstead, Dolphins’ left tackle, sidelined for several weeks due to knee injury

MIAMI GARDENS — Left tackle Terron Armstead will miss Sunday’s game against the Recent York Giants with a knee injury suffered within the loss to the Buffalo Bills.

Coach Mike McDaniel said Monday it’ll take “weeks, not days” for Armstead to get well from his latest injury. Although no decision has been announced, it’s possible Armstead may very well be placed on injured reserve.

“Now we have to type of see how every little thing settles down after which we’ll find a way to make a greater prognosis for that timeline here,” McDaniel said. “ … But he can be playing again this season.”

The immediate news was higher regarding linebacker Jaelan Phillips and center Connor Williams, who missed Sunday’s 48-20 loss but were near playing. McDaniel said he expects each to practice Wednesday. Phillips has an oblique injury; Williams has a groin injury.

Armstead has struggled to stay healthy throughout much of his profession, including last season, his first in Miami, when he missed 4 regular-season games. He already was missing extensive practice time with back, ankle, and knee injuries.

The Dolphins expect left tackle Terron Armstead to need weeks to recover from a knee injury.

Kendall Lamm has filled in for Armstead.

“Kendall has done an amazing job this season,” McDaniel said. “ … I actually have all the arrogance he’s played his tail off and is a large a part of our room. So I do know no one on offense has anything but confidence in his play and being there.”

Why did Mike McDaniel call the two-point conversion?

The Dolphins opened the second half with a touchdown drive to chop the deficit to 31-20 but opted for a two-point conversion try that failed when a pass to Tyreek Hill was broken up.

McDaniel said no matter whether the try succeeded, a win wasn’t going to occur without the defense holding the Bills out of the tip zone. If the play succeeded, he said, the Dolphins would trail by nine and subsequently could have set themselves as much as win with a touchdown followed by a field goal.

“On this particular instance, it was something that we discussed coming out of the tunnel after halftime that hey, we’re getting the ball back. If we do go down and rating, we can be going for 2,” McDaniel said.

Alec Ingold expects ‘saltiness’ from Dolphins

Fullback Alec Ingold said the Giants can expect to face a Dolphins team with extra “juice” Sunday after getting drubbed by the Bills.

“There’s going to be slightly saltiness going around,” said Ingold, who labeled it each “a tricky loss and embarrassing loss.”

He added, “I feel that is where with the ability to respond after a tricky loss and being at 3-1 goes to be a number of juice for a number of guys.”
