Miami Dolphins offensive tackle Will Yeatman has torn his anterior cruciate ligament, according to league sources.
It's a blow to the Dolphins' offensive line given that offensive guard Richie Incognito is indefinitely suspended for conduct detrimental to the team and offensive tackle Jonathan Martin has left the team after alleging he was bullied by Incognito.
Yeatman is an athletic converted tight end who was beginning to get more playing time in recent weeks.
The 6-foot-6, 315-pound former University of Maryland player has played in eight games this season.
The Dolphins are expected to place Yeatman on injured reserve and promote an offensive lineman from the practice squad to the active roster.
