While he says he’s alright now, the NFL concussion protocol will have him undergoing concussion testing until he’s cleared to return to action, ans that means he probably won’t be available for Thursday night’s quick turnaround in Miami.

The team needs him to return in a hurry, as Michael Boley is his backup but clearly not ready to take over the starting MLB role.

The team may move Vontaze Burfict from the weakside to the middle vs the Dolphins. Don’t be surprised if J.K. Schaffer get’s called up at some point either.
