DAVIE, Fla. (AP) _ New Miami Dolphins linebacker Joey Porter
sought a second opinion Monday before deciding whether to undergo
arthroscopic knee surgery that could sideline him for two weeks or
Porter has been sidelined since Friday because of the injury,
which began bothering him during the offseason. He was examined
over the weekend and sought a second opinion from Birmingham,
Alabama-based specialist Doctor James Andrews.
The Dolphins' first exhibition game is Saturday against
Jacksonville. Porter would miss most or all of the preseason if he
requires arthroscopic surgery.
Another injury concern surfaced when tackle Anthony Alabi
(Al'-uh-bee) limped off the field this morning after hurting his
left knee. He was to be evaluated.
