Dolphins injury report: Jake Long's status uncertain after arm injury

Jake Long could be out for the remainder of the season because of a triceps injury suffered during Miami's loss to New England in Week 13.

Jake Long exited Miami's Week 13 loss to the New England Patriots with an arm injury and did not return -- and the offensive lineman's status is unknown for Week 14, when the Dolphins take on the San Francisco 49ers.

Unfortunately for the Dolphins, Long's status for the rest of the season, and not just Week 14, appears to be in jeopardy. Per Armando Salguero, a Dolphins source believes that Long will "probably" be out for the rest of the 2012 season.

Long injured his arm during the first quarter of Miami's loss to New England, and was later seen on the sideline with a heavy ice pack taped to his arm. Miami officials reportedly fear that Long tore his triceps, which would force Long to miss the rest of the season.

Aside from Long's injury, the Dolphins escaped Week 13 unscathed by injury.

More will be known of Long's status, and any other Dolphin nursing injury, on Wednesday, when the team releases an injury report.
