The news isn’t great for the Miami Dolphins. It appears Jaylen Ramsey will be out until at least December, according to NFL.com. This setback to the Dolphin’s defense is massive, considering their currently undergoing a scheme overhaul under their defensive coordinator Vic Fangio.
Ramsey, who was carted off the practice field, was looking forward to being a potential game-changer for the Miami defense. Now, it seems like they will have to rely heavily on Xavien Howard and Kader Kohou. The good news for Miami fans? Howard is excited to see how Kader Kohou will step up. When asked by a local reporter about who he thought could help fill Ramsey’s gap, he responded with:
“My boy, Kader. Dude is a straight dawg, his mentality he has, just being an undrafted guy, I continue to see him grow and get better on the field.”Xavien Howard
If the challenge wasn’t big enough? The Dolphins will face the Kansas City Chiefs, Buffalo Bills, and the New York Jets, all while Ramsey is likely out. If Miami can weather this storm, then in all likelihood, Ramsey will play a critical role in a playoff push for a Miami team who is confident in their ability.
