Armando Salguer of the Miami Herald reports the results of Brian Hartline's MRI on his injured knee:
Brian Hartline MRI results confirm PCL tear. No surgery required. Will be ready for training camp.— Armando Salguero (@ArmandoSalguero) December 30, 2013
I'm told surgery to repair PCL is not perfected procedure to point it's better to rehab, strengthen area and play without it.— Armando Salguero (@ArmandoSalguero) December 30, 2013
Chris Perkins of the Sun-Sentinel previously provided insight into Hartline's injury:
Hartline sustained the injury in the first quarter of Sunday's 20-7 loss to the New York Jetsthat put him over the 1,000-yard mark. After Hartline had a 25-yard reception he left the game and was seen telling doctors on the sideline that he heard his left knee "pop" at the conclusion of the catch.
Perkins continued with a statement from Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill discussing Hartline's importance to the organization:
"He's a big time player in our offense and it was tough to lose him," quarterback Ryan Tannehill said of Hartline's absence. "But the guys step up when they had opportunity."
