Camarillo out for season

You had to know that with the amount of agony Greg Camarillo was in after going to the ground and clutching his knee against the Patriots, he wasn't "fine" as he proclaimed after the game.

Indeed, Camarillo will be placed on Injured Reserve, ending his season.

He suffered a torn ACL and meniscus in his left knee. This is a very serious injury that will require a long rehab process, possibly putting his status in jeopardy for the beginning of next season.

In the meantime, it is also a big blow to Miami's already paper-thin receiving corps. Ted Ginn has been improving weekly, but Camarillo has been the team's most consistent WR this season. There is now a big void at starting receiver opposite Ginn. Davone Bess will likely get a lot more snaps now, but a starting duo of Bess and Ginn leaves absolutely no size on the field. Hopefully, Ernest Wilford will be activated on game days now, and he can start providing a return on the hefty investment the team made in him. He and Brandon London are the only two tall receivers left on the roster.

It would probably be wise for the team to call up Anthony Armstrong from the practice squad as well.
