A key part of the Miami Dolphins offensive line will be missing for the rest of the year. Guard Josh Sitton suffered a torn rotator cuff and will miss the 2018 season after playing just one game.
Miami signed Sitton to a two-year deal in March 2018. The veteran offensive lineman was supposed to be a vital part of the locker room shift head coach Adam Gase was hoping to implement.
Sitton reportedly tore the rotator cuff during the second-half of the team’s win over the Tennessee Titans. He finished the game and hoped to play through the injury.
Armando Salguero first reported the news, which NFL insider Ian Rapoport confirmed.

Sitton is a four-time Pro Bowler and former All-Pro. He entered the NFL with the Green Bay Packers before moving to the Chicago Bears.
He signed with the Dolphins to sure up the offensive line. It’s a huge blow to the Miami front which found success against the Titans on the ground in Week 1.
