Jaylen Waddle returns to game after injury scare in Week 2 of preseason

First round pick Jaylen Waddle appears to have avoided an injury in Week 2 of preseason.

UPDATE: Waddle has returned to the game.

UPDATE: Looks like Dolphins fans may be able to exhale after Waddle returned from the locker room and is running and cutting on the sideline. The Dolphins first-round pick, even if perfectly fine, may be done for the day after the scare, but he looked good, catching three passes for 21 yards on their first drive. He and Myles Gaskin were the only players to touch the ball on the drive and Gaskin punched the ball in for a touchdown. I think they wanted to see those two and they got to see a lot of good things even with the injury scare for Waddle.

Miami Dolphins rookie Jaylen Waddle got caught up on a run play and appeared to hurt his knee against the Atlanta Falcons. He hobbled down the sideline for a bit and appeared to be in a lot of pain. He is now in the blue medical tent being evaluated.
