Description: Dolphins DL Phillip Merling's 2010 season is over after he tore his Achilles' tendon. SOURCE: MIAMI HERALD
Insight: Merling had been taking the majority of first-team reps at right defensive end during spring practices, but is facing a felony battery charge after striking his pregnant girlfriend, so a suspension was inevitable. First-rounder Jared Odrick is expected to take his place. The team already lost Jason Ferguson, who announced his retirement last week.
