I will say this about Cameron..he hasn't tried to win a game by encouraging injured players to come back too early. He really has the best in mind for Trent Green and Zach. That being said, it hasn't helped him win any games.

Now just wait for all the 'fans' who will complain that Cameron is making Zach sit out... of course, one more hit to the head and he'd be 'scrambled eggs', but hey, whatever. Everyone wants to CAN CAM, so why not blame him for this too?

Oh, well. This is one of those seasons that when it rains, it pours.

Heal well, Zach.

I'm also surprised Kerry Reed was waived.

IR!, are you kidding me???? Just put him in the game with the headaches. He'll probably me gone after this year anyways! I think Cam is trying to put as many people on IR to save his job. He'll tell Wayne that he can't possibly win a game with this many people injured.

If Zach was able to play Im sure that he would,he leads this D and it must be tough for him just to stand and watch.

There isn't much to be gained by letting him play anyway.

No sense in risking his health just for the "pride" of finishing 1-15 instead of 0-16.

Hopefully he'll just read the writing on the wall and just retire. Miami won't be a contender any time soon... and he's too damaged for any contender to want him.

I know its killing Zach to not be able to play, even for a team that is looking more and more like the worst in nfl history right now. Remember, when the bucs went winless, it was only a 14 game season then!
As for Marino13's insunuatiuon that Cam would put as many GOOD players on IR to cover up his losses to wayne makes as much sence as slitting your own tires before a race, and then saying you lost because of flat tires!
NOONE IS THAT STUPID.

He'll be back next year, manning the outside spot- mentoring Channing in the middle. Best of wishes to you Zach! We need you healthy!

Clearly this IS cam's fault! Why did he let these veterans sit the whole preseason when they should have been getting in "football" shape!

Everyone knows a good hard hitting preseason prevents you from getting concussions!

Everyone except that incompetent coach!

Sheesh.

Come on woodstrock, stop covering for him!

That didn't sound stupid. Not at all.

Here's a guy who makes a living running into people with his head and he's taken out by an old lady tapping him in the rear.

We will miss you.. Be back next year.. You WILL have a better team anyway. You and all the rest of the injured players will have healed and so will you mentally and physically. I believe the glass is half full, not half empty. Thanks for all the years you have given your ALL!!!!. Love Joan from spring hill, Florida

I hope Zach gets well , and retires. I'd hate to see him ruin his future life after football . If the team is rebuilding , so be it. One player can't help this team right now.If he does come back , I hope he is used in a teaching capacity.
So far a few of the rookies are showing promise. Hopefully that will continue.

Run Zach run.

Can't say I blame you.

Who would want to be a part of the worst professional team in the history of history since history began way back in history

...snicker snicker...

Here is my question for you farts (hopefully you have someone from up North who can read it to your illiterate arses).

WOULD ZACH BE ON INJURED RESERVE IF THE DOLPHINS WERE NOT WINLESS?

Gotcha Zachy boy...

Good they are shutting Zach down for rest of the year. Maybe he'll be able to play next year but they need to draft a real replacement instead of crowder.
Crowder doesn't cover much ground and is a huge drop off from Zach.

Zack Zack Zack Zack Zack Zack Zack Zack Zack!

You have been a bright spot nocking the snot bubbles out of the other teams. Bloodied and battered you fought on. You are the Fins all time best linebacker and and probaly the NFL's. I will miss seeing you kick the s*** out of the other team.
You brought so much excitement to the game.
I hope you can come back next year.

Gotta luv Zack!

It's bad enough we don't have the players at this point but to have a young head coach that's "learning on the job" is just too much.
BRING BACK SHULA!!
