Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports that the Dolphins have sent cornerback Will Allen to the doctor to have his surgically repaired knee examined. Allen has missed the past few days of training camp “resting” the knee. He tore his ACL in the sixth game last season.
Miami recently signed cornerback Kevin Hobbs, but that was only because backup corner Evan Oglesby was lost to a serious ankle injury (Oglesby was put on I.R. today). If Allen is unable to play, the Dolphins will be in the market for a nickelback. Perhaps they’ll bring Frank Walker in for another workout.
