Dolphins’ win over Titans costly _ for both teams
Over on the Tennessee Titans‘ sideline, things were almost as bad.
Injuries sidelined the Dolphins‘ top two quarterbacks Sunday. Pennington’s season debut lasted only two plays before he departed with another injury to his troublesome right shoulder, and Henne hurt his left knee in the third quarter.
“Our situation speaks for itself,” coach Jeff Fisher said. “We’ve got two good quarterbacks that have been spelling one another through this injury thing we’ve been dealing with.”
The 34-year-old Pennington has undergone shoulder surgery three times, most recently last year after he was injured in Week 3. He hadn’t played since, and now the Dolphins wonder if he’ll be able to play again.
“For him to have another shoulder problem, it’s tough,” Henne said. “I’m sure he’s going to have some decisions to make when he finds out what’s going on.
“We’re stuck with this situation. We’ll see what happens.”
Henne hurt his left knee when hit by 305-pound defensive tackle Tony Brown as he threw an incompletion. He walked off the field and was scheduled to undergo an MRI exam.
“It doesn’t feel good,” Henne said. “But if I can stand it, if I can run on it, I’m going to play. We’ll see what happens. I’m not going to be one to baby my knee. If I can be out there, I’ll be out there.”
Bills rookie running back C.J. Spiller is out indefinitely after hurting his hamstring in a 14-12 win over the Detroit Lions.
Though final tests results weren’t in, coach Chan Gailey all but ruled out Spiller from playing next week, when the Bills are at Cincinnati.
