After sweating it out in training camp, the players are finally getting a chance to get their aggression out on other teams. This week we have the first full installment of the rankings (numbers and everything), updates on injuries and starting position battles and a new feature called "The Block of the Week." NFL offensive lines, the big men: let's get after it!
MIA - LG T. Larsen OUT With a torn bicep.
Starting left guard Ted Larsen suffered a serious injury and he will likely miss months, if not the whole season. Larsen could be a candidate to return off the injured reserve, depending on his progress in rehab and how badly his replacements are playing. Anthony Steen got the nod for Larsen in the preseason win over the Atlanta Falcons, and he could have the lead on the job over rookie Isaac Asiata, who has been working with the backups. Kraig Urbik is also in the picture but he has been starting at center while Mike Pouncey is given maintenance days off. Ted Larsen is a replaceable starter but there's not a ton of upside in this situation. The Dolphins' offensive line is at 22nd in the latest ranks.
