Thomas B. Shea

Things are going from bad to worse for Miami's offensive line.

The hits keep coming for the Miami Dolphins' offensive front. Already missing two key members of their line in the wake of a bullying scandal, the team may now be without backup tackle Will Yeatman, who tore his ACL according to the National Football Post's Aaron Wilson.

Yeatman suffered the injury in practice on Wednesday and will have an MRI to determine the severity of the injury, according to ESPN.com's James Walker.

The team is already without guard Richie Incognito and tackle Jonathan Martin. Martin left the team two weeks ago because of alleged bullying from teammates and Incognito was suspended amidst the burgeoning scandal.

Yeatman, an athletic converted tight end, is listed as the backup to left tackle Bryant McKinnie on the Dolphins' depth chart. The team may opt to promote Jason Weaver from the practice squad to replace him.
