Brice McCain could return in a week or two after suffering a sprained knee.
The Miami Dolphins looked great on both sides of the ball Sunday, but the victory didn't come without an injury. Starting cornerback Brice McCain reportedly suffered a sprained right knee in the game, though there was no structural damage.
McCain was an offseason free agent acquisition by the Dolphins and has started all five games for Miami this season. He has one interception and three pass deflections in those five starts and has proved to be a reliable starter next to Brent Grimes.
As for his injury, he should be able to return within one to two weeks and won't require surgery. This week of practice will be telling for his availability against his former team the Houston Texans on Sunday.

If McCain is unable to go against the Texans, Jamar Taylor and Zack Bowman will likely combine to fill in for him. Taylor has been disappointing thus far after being a second-round pick in 2013, while Bowman is a journeyman who's picked off 13 passes in his career — six of which came in 2009 with the Chicago Bears.
