HOUSTON – Miami Dolphins left tackle Terron Armstead’s bid to be ready for the start of the regular season may have been dealt a serious blow at Thursday’s morning practice.

Armstead had to be carted off the field during the team’s joint session with the Texans.

Dolphins beat reporter Daniel Oyefusi, of the Miami Herald, posted on X that Armstead was taken off on a cart after not being able to put any weight on his right leg.

Armstead told reporters on Wednesday that he was “still working through that process” of getting ready to play against the Chargers in Week 1 after having arthroscopic surgery on his knee this offseason.

After practice, Armstead posted a video of himself walking inside the training facility and expressing his thanks for the support he got once news of his injury made the rounds.

Austin Jackson is set to start at right tackle in Miami. Kendall Lamm, Cedric Ogbuehi, Geron Christian, and seventh-round pick Ryan Hayes are Armstead’s backup options if he were to miss any time.

The Dolphins’ first regular season game is set for 4:25 p.m. on Sunday, Sept 10 against the Los Angeles Chargers.
