The Miami Dolphins earned their first victory of the 2019 season Sunday and all was well in South Florida sports.
It’s a South Florida weekend sweep.

For roughly 24 hours if that.
First news broke that wide receiver Preston Williams was being shut down for the season with a knee injury.

Williams finishes a breakout rookie season with 32 receptions for 428 yards and three touchdowns, two of those scores came in his final game Sunday against New York.
Adding company to the misery, at least for Dolphins’ fans stateside, it was also announced Miami would again be playing overseas next year.
Also, as colleague @ArmandoSalguero reported today, Dolphins will play one international game in 2020. That game will be a Fins home game, meaning seven regular season games at Hard Rock in 2020. As a result, all season ticket holders will pay less for season with one less game

Season ticket holders will again be losing a home game in Miami Gardens but there is good news, they’ll save about 12% on the cost of tickets!
Those same season ticket holders can forgo the International Series and enjoy just seven games against what would be likely a last place schedule.
But wait, there’s more…
On a busy news day, you might as well keep the hits coming.
Statement from Head Coach Brian Flores on the suspension of Mark Walton. pic.twitter.com/7LxKyimD4M

Walton will be suspended for the next four games as a result of his three arrests in the offseason.

Walton was the new lead back after the departure of Kenyan Drake to Arizona. Kallen Ballage will now assume that role, look for more roster moves in the running back room as the week goes on.
After a resounding win against Adam Gase and the Jets, thankfully the 2019 Miami Dolphins have quickly returned to form we all know and love.
