Fins Place OT Jake Long on IR

Dolphins announced that left tackle Jake Long has been placed on season-ending injured reserve.

Long, who was named to a fourth straight Pro Bowl on Tuesday, suffered a torn biceps in last Sunday’s 27-24 loss to the New England Patriots.

The No. 1 overall pick of the 2008 NFL Draft, has been banged up the last two seasons, playing through knee (both) and shoulder injuries before missing the first start of his career with a back injury in Week 15.

To replace Long, the Dolphins have promoted running back Richard Medlin from the practice squad.
