DETROIT (AP) — Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Branden Albert was carted off the field in the second quarter of Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions with a right knee injury.

Albert’s right leg was caught underneath another player on the ground, and the 30-year-old tackle remained down for a while before being transported off the field.

Detroit offensive lineman Larry Warford left the game in the first quarter with a left knee injury. The 6-foot-3 Warford has started every game of his career since the Lions picked him in the third round of the 2013 draft.
