DAVIE, Fla. (AP) -Miami safety Cameron Worrell tore his ACL in the Dolphins' 40-13 loss to the New York Jets on Sunday, coach Cam Cameron said.
Worrell is the latest in a string of safeties Miami has lost to injuries this season.
Yeremiah Bell tore his Achilles' tendon in Week 1 and will miss the rest of the season. Travares Tillman started in Week 2 and was sidelined by a knee injury.
``You just have to deal with it,'' Cameron said Monday. ``You've got to look at it, you've got to deal with it and it's an opportunity for the next guy to step up.''
Cameron said he was not sure when a surgery to repair Worrell's knee would take place, and said the team is still discussing possible roster changes.
``It's not what you want. I don't know that frustration is the right word,'' Cameron said. ``It's what we do - that's the business we're in. You deal with injuries.''
The 0-12 Dolphins play at Buffalo this Sunday.
Worrell has 49 tackles this season. He has started six games.
``Your safeties are critical,'' Cameron said. ``Obviously, we've had some tough luck there.''
