UPDATE: This report was a mistake, the result of an NFL Network crawl from 2009 running on a re-aired game today. Channing Crowder is not out for 2010. We apologize for the error.
Dolphins linebacker Channing Crowder's is reportedly over before it ever got started.
The Associated Press reports Crowder will miss the entire 2010 season with a foot injury, according to a tweet from the New York Daily News' Manish Mehta. No other details are known at this time.
The new is surprising because Crowder appeared to return to full health in June practice, reclaiming his starting job.
An old friend of Rex Ryan and Florio, Crowder has battled injuries throughout his career, ending last season on injured reserve with another foot problem. (The Dolphins feared he had a Lisfranc fracture.) The Dolphins acquired Tim Dobbins from San Diego in a draft day trade and he was set to compete with Crowder for a starting job.
Now it appears that Dobbins will have the starting job all to himself, with rookie A.J. Edds a candidate to play on passing downs.
