Dolphins officially place DE Emmanuel Ogbah on IR

Injury issues have plagued the Miami Dolphins throughout the 2022 campaign, especially on the defensive side of the ball.

On Monday, the team announced that they’ve placed defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah on injured reserve, ending his season after 10 weeks. Ogbah will have surgery on his torn triceps and, hopefully, be ready to go for the start of the 2023 year.

Ogbah joins Brandon Jones, Nik Needham, Trill Williams and Trey Flowers as defenders on injured reserve. While it’s unclear whether or not Flowers will return this season, head coach Mike McDaniel confirmed that he’ll be sidelined for the foreseeable future.

In the meantime, Miami will have to get more from Melvin Ingram, Jaelan Phillips, Bradley Chubb and Andrew Van Ginkel on the outside to make up for Ogbah’s absence.
