Miami Dolphins edge rusher Emmanuel Ogbah will miss the remainder of the season after tearing his triceps in Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns, according to multiple reports.

Ogbah exited in the second quarter with what was initially termed an elbow injury, and did not return to Miami’s 39-17 win.

The injury ends a disappointing campaign for Ogbah, whom the Dolphins re-signed to a four-year, $65million contract in March. The seven-year veteran managed just one sack and 11 tackles in nine games.

Ogbah was coming off back-to-back nine-sack seasons and ranked second among Dolphins players with 12 passes defensed in 2021.

Miami did address a need for pass-rush help at the recent trade deadline by acquiring outside linebacker Bradley Chubb from the Denver Broncos on November 1. The Dolphins signed the impending free agent to a five-year, $110m extension shortly after the trade.

The Dolphins also have 2021 first-round pick Jaelan Phillips and veteran Melvin Ingram available as edge rushers.
