McCain sustained an ankle injury during Sunday's game against the Bills, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports. McCain hurt his ankle on a play that devolved into a fight, resulting in the ejection of teammates Kiko Alonso and Robert Quinn. With Reshad Jones (leg) questionable to return, and T.J. McDonald (ankle) and Xavien Howard (knee) inactive, the Dolphins could be without a single starting member of their secondary if McCain does not retake the field.
McCain recorded seven tackles (four solo) and a sack across 81 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Patriots. McCain now has a sack in back-to-back contests. He has 48 tackles while playing in 72 percent of the defensive snaps on the season. He'll look to help contain Kirk Cousins and the Vikings passing-attack this Sunday.
McCain (concussion) is participating in some form during Tuesday's practice, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports. McCain took a strong blindside block in Week 10 against the Packers and was placed in concussion protocol following the hit. As evidenced by this news, McCain seems to be progressing nicely in his recovery. The Memphis product will still have to clear the concussion protocol before suiting back up in game action.
McCain is under concussion protocol, but the cornerback is believed to have avoided serious injury, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports. McCain was on the wrong end of a vicious blindside block during Sunday's game in Green Bay, and it wouldn't surprise many witnesses of the play if the cornerback was forced to miss time. Fortunately, the Dolphins are on bye in Week 11, which allows McCain roughly two weeks of rest to get ready for Miami's Week 12 date with Buffalo.
McCain exited Sunday's game against the Packers due to a head injury and will not return, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports. McCain received a devastating illegal blindside block by rookie wideout Equanimeous St. Brown and walked to the locker room under his own power. Cornell Armstrong will slot into Miami's starting lineup, and McCain will attempt to get healthy heading into the Dolphins' bye week.
