y their divisional foes up in Foxborough last week Isaiah Prince Jersey nfl draft , showing that Miami still has a ways to go before emerging as a top AFC contender. That game also brought injuries to the forefront of everyone’s mind in South Florida, as the Dolphins’ swath of absences due to injuries is beginning to take a toll on this team. When the Dolphins travel to Cincinnati this weekend, one player on the opposing team is sure to attempt to take advantage of Miami’s ailing secondary.Each week of the 2018 season, I’m highlighting one player on the opposing team that Dolphins fans should be watching out for. This week, that player is Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd.Fact CheckPosition: WRExperience: 3rd seasonAge: 23Height/Weight: 6’2”, 203 lbsCollege: PittsburghStat ReviewAfter two seasons of being limited to coming off of the bench on a limited offense, Boyd has exploded onto the scene through the first quarter of the 2018 season. With Cincinnati’s aerial attack clicking, Boyd has been thrust into a starting roll and has thrived as A.J. Green’s partner in crime. Across from Green, Boyd has compiled 26 receptions for 349 yards and two touchdowns across four contests. He also has one rushing attempt for five yards. With starting tight end Tyler Eifert going down last week Chandler Cox Miami Dolphins Jerseys , Boyd will be even more heavily relied on in the passing game, meaning his statistical production is sure to balloon further.Key MatchupsAs I mentioned above, the Dolphins have endured an unfortunate number injures in such a short period of time. The team has lost starting guard Josh Sitton, starting center Daniel Kilgore, starting tight end MarQueis Gray, and run-stopping maven William Hayes to season ending injuries. On top of that, defensive end Andre Branch, wide receiver DeVante Parker, safety Reshad Jones Miami Dolphins Jerseys 2019 , and tight end A.J. Derby have all missed (or will miss) significant time. Yet, there’s one specific injury that will be a major detriment in Miami’s attempt to stifle Boyd, and that is to Bobby McCain’s knee.McCain, Miami’s #2 cornerback, went down against the Patriots last week with a knee injury that is likely to sideline him for several games. With McCain out and budding star Xavien Howard likely to have his hands full with Green, the Dolphins will need to rely on Torry McTyer to cover Boyd. While McTyer has proven himself serviceable, he simply doesn’t have the experience or polish of McCain, meaning the Dolphins may have to provide him with extra help from defensive backs Minkah Fitzpatrick and Reshad Jones (if Jones is available to play this weekend). Whatever defensive coordinator Matt Burke cooks up, it will have to be creative to cover up what is shaping out to be a depleted roster.Phinsider Meme Central: Game 4 [ prolonged fart noise ]...welp...That was about as much fun as having a pretty face in a maximum security prison when all the guards go on a prolonged break & you’re caught in the showers...or something.It’s as if Miami is being punished for being so healthy throughout Training Camp and the Preseason.Still Chandler Cox T-Shirts Jersey , despite losing 40% of our starting OL, 33% of our DL, and 50% of our starting DBs, nobody expected us to drop a colossal turd in Fuxboro.This next game will show us all a lot about this what the 2018 team and the coaching staff are made of.In the meantime, let’s have some fun & cheer our grumpy fan base up, shall we?Devin McCourty learned a valuable lesson on Sunday, compliments of RB Kenyan Drake.Boop!@nashmax73 Is anyone really surprised that CB Bobby McCain got injured? Laws of Physics = OUCH!@nashmax73 And now comes a segment I like to call, “Make Fun of Brady.”Oh look, here he comes to gloat about winning this time Infant Chandler Cox Jersey , unlike his last game against Miami on MNF.Truth Bomb@nashmax73 You can have how ever many tainted rings you want Brady, but you still act like a whiny, pouting baby when you hang around after wins but disappear immediately after a loss. Cry Baby@nashmax73 I will forever see this every time Tom Brady is on TV.Big Baby@nashmax73 Finally, happy trails to disgruntled DT Jordan Phillips.If only you loved being part of a team as much as you loved grubbing or talking smack to Omar Kelly.The Hunger Is Real@nashmax73 #FinsUp
