Dolphins assistant Rob Leonard in protocols, will miss game

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. -- The Miami Dolphins will be without outside linebackers coach Rob Leonard for Sunday's game at Las Vegas because of COVID-19 protocols.

The Dolphins made the announcement Friday and said his responsibilities 'will be shared amongst the defensive staff.' Leonard's status for Miami's preparations next week leading into an Oct. 3 home game against Indianapolis is unknown.


No Dolphins players are currently sidelined because of the virus protocols.

The team was without left tackle Austin Jackson for about a week of practice earlier this month because of a positive test, and tight end Adam Shaheen missed Miami's season-opener against New England following a testing issue.
