Joeckel, the starting left tackle, will give way to his backup, Sam Young. His absence will provide a slight boost to the Miami defense.
Joeckel sustained an ankle injury in the season-opening loss to the Panthers. If he's unable to go, Sam Young will start at left tackle Week 2 against the Dolphins.
"Just kind of rolled it right before the half and taped it up, tried to get back out there and it kept giving out on me and rolling again," Joeckel said. "There wasn't enough stability there."
"I definitely can see growth this offseason," Joeckel said. "Going into last season, I didn't feel like I had gotten stronger, gotten bigger and that I was ready to go out and play. This offseason, I can see it in the weight room, and I'm excited to get into OTAs and training camp and see where I am."
Joeckel spent last offseason rehabbing a fractured ankle, but he said he been able to concentrate on adding more muscle to his frame this offseason.
"It's been going really well," he said. "Having a healthy offseason has been huge."
