Twenty-year-old Raekwon McMillan was injured early in Thursday’s Preseason opener. McMillan was the Dolphins’ second-round draft pick in the 2017 draft.

Running down the field during a Miami punt, McMillan collided with a teammate, bending his knee at an awkward angle. McMillan walked off the field on his own power without a noticeable limp. He was originally only downgraded to questionable to return, but as the night went on, rumors began to swirl.
