The Miami Dolphins will be placing safety Jason McCourty and running back Malcolm Brown on injured reserve, coach Brian Flores announced Monday.
McCourty, 34, sustained a foot injury in Miami’s 30-28 loss to the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. He may require surgery, however NFL Network reported McCourty is seeking a second opinion.
He has recorded 21 tackles and two passes defensed in seven games (four starts) this season. He has 744 tackles and 18 interceptions in 173 career games (141 starts) with the Tennessee Titans (2009-16), Cleveland Browns (2017), New England Patriots (2018-20) and Dolphins.
Brown, 28, injured his quadriceps early in Miami’s loss Sunday. He has 33 carries for 125 yards and a touchdown in seven games (three starts) this season for the Dolphins (1-6), who have lost six in a row.
Salvon Ahmed likely will elevate to the role of primary backup behind Myles Gaskin in Brown’s absence.
