Hurricane Irma forces NFL to move Bucs-Dolphins game
The Buccaneers-Dolphins game scheduled for Sunday in Miami will not be played.
Hurricane Irma, a Category 5 storm on a path for South Florida, has forced the NFL to move the game, though a neutral site or new date have been determined.
Irma is a potentially catastrophic hurricane with sustained winds of 185 mph.
Bridgewater, the 32nd overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft and 2014 Rookie of the Year, will continue to strengthen his knee as the Vikings overhauled their offensive line to protect Bradford.
When Foster departed, the 49ers and Panthers were tied at 0, but the game quickly slipped away after he left. On the next play, the Panthers scored on a 40-yard pass from quarterback Cam Newton to receiver Russell Shepard. Carolina went on to reel off the game’s first 20 points before the Niners scored.
“Reuben is a guy that we definitely want out there,” Shanahan said. “I thought it was a little deflating when you have a big turnover like we did, especially when on the play, it was a chance to have an explosive touchdown. So that was deflating on offense and then to have a turnover instead of that and then to lose a guy on the next play and then I think they went down two plays later.”
Surgery would have meant Darby would miss the rest of the season. After Sunday’s game, the team’s medical staff expected that Darby’s absence would be about 6-8 weeks if it did not require surgery, a team source said. Another source noted every player heals differently under the rehab treatment and said, you can always hope for a 4-to-6 week deal but there were discussions whether Darby would be a candidate for injured reserve, with the ability to return after eight weeks.
