Dolphins safety Delmas to go on injured reserve

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) Miami Dolphins safety Louis Delmas went on season-ending injured reserve Monday after hurting his right knee against the Baltimore Ravens.

Delmas was carted off the field Sunday after being hurt in the fourth quarter. He started 12 games this year, made 61 tackles and scored on an interception return.

''Louis has had a very good season,'' defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle said. ''He's an emotional leader on the team as well, so we are going to miss him a lot.''

He'll likely be replaced in the starting lineup by Jimmy Wilson. The Dolphins are hoping for reinforcements in the secondary this week with the possible return of cornerbacks Cortland Finnegan and Jamar Taylor from injuries.
