Dolphins safety Worrell out with torn ACL

DAVIE, Fla. -- 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."
