Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Gibson had developed into a reliable red-zone target for quarterback Ryan Tannehill in recent weeks, but the Dolphins had to finish the team's Week 8 game against the New England Patriots without him.
According to Albert Breer of NFL.com, the knee injury Gibson suffered in the first half against New England is believed to be a torn patellar tendon:
