Miami Dolphins Waive Injured TE Joey Haynos

Three days after Joey Haynos suffered what appeared to be a serious foot injury against the Atlanta Falcons, the Miami Dolphins have confirmed the team has waived/injured the third-year tight end.

Haynos immediately fell to the ground untouched coming off the line during an offensive play in the fourth quarter against the Falcons, leading many speculate a serious foot or Achilles' tendon injury had occurred.

While specific details remain unknown, the injury does appear to be significant and Haynos has been on crutches and a boot since Saturday.

Originally signed by the Green Bay Packers as an undrafted free agent out of Maryland, Haynos has spent nearly two full seasons with the Dolphins and has amassed 21 catches for 184 yards and three touchdowns in 23 career games.

After serving as the team's No. 3 tight end for most of his rookie season, Haynos moved into a the backup job behind starter Anthony Fasano and started eight games.
