Week 2’s win over the New England Patriots didn’t come without a scare for the Miami Dolphins.
Star WR Jaylen Waddle might miss some time after potentially suffering a concussion.
The Dolphins looked to close out the win on Sunday Night Football, running the football with Raheem Mostert to drain the clock and wrap things up.
Then, McDaniel tried to surprise his rivals by getting Tua Tagovailoa to throw the football to Waddle, which led to a hit on the head by rookie safety Marte Mapu.
Waddle was able to walk off the field under his own power, but he was immediately checked for a concussion.
Following the game, however, Tyreek Hill had a blunt and rather optimistic injury update, simply stating that “he’s good” (via Marcel Louis-Jacques).
Mike McDaniel says he doesn’t have an official update on Jaylen Waddle, who was evaluated for a concussion toward the end of tonight’s game

Coach McDaniel said that he didn’t have an official update on his status yet, but the report adds that Waddle was interacting with his teammates normally in the locker room.
The Dolphins host the Denver Broncos and their seemingly elite defense next week, so obviously, not having Waddle could be a big blow to their aspirations.
With superstar CB Patrick Surtain II most likely locked in trying to contain Hill, they will need Waddle doing his thing in the open field as well.
The Dolphins currently sit atop the AFC East with a 2-0 record, and Waddle has played a big part in that.
He’s logged eight receptions on 11 targets for 164 yards, averaging a whopping 20.5 yards per reception.
