Abdul-Quddus injured his neck last Saturday in the game against the Buffalo Bills. The injury was enough to put him on the sideline for the rest of the contest and now not only week 17 but also Wild Card weekend of the playoffs.
This is a blow to a Dolphins defense that has struggled in the month of December. Although Miami is 3-1 this month they haven’t played up to standards. For instance, against the Bills on Saturday Miami gave up 589 net yards including 317 net yards to Tyrod Taylor who after the firing of Rex Ryan yesterday has since been benched.
Undrafted rookie AJ Hendy has been called up to take IQA’s spot on the roster. Both he and special teams ace Walt Aikens are expected to back up Michael Thomas and Bacarri Rambo at safety.
