Richard Marshall injury: Dolphins CB could return vs. Jets

Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Miami Dolphins cornerback Richard Marshall is aiming to return after the bye week against the New York Jets.

Miami Dolphins cornerback Richard Marshall hopes to be back in the roster for next Sunday's game against the New York Jets, according to Harvey Fialkov of The Sun Sentinel. Marshall is still recovering from a back injury he sustained in Week 2 when he collided with teammate Karlos Dansby. The pain has been so bad that he has had to use crutches to move around.

While the Dolphins are on their bye week this week, Marshall will remain in South Florida during the bye week to get treatment on his back about three times a day.

Marshall has praised his replacement Nolan Carroll and the secondary for their performance in his absence:

"Our secondary's been playing all right. We're still letting stuff get behind us. We got to correct but for most part everybody's been playing good. Sean [Smith] is playing the best I ever seen him play as far as when I wasn't here just watching him.''

While the Dolphins have allowed four of six opposing quarterbacks to throw for more than 300 yards, the Dolphins have allowed only seven passing touchdowns this season.
