Long injures right ankle in Pro Bowl

Jake Long tweaked his right ankle during the fourth quarter of the Pro Bowl Sunday, no doubt sending a chill through Dolphins fans watching the game.

The seriousness of the injury remains unclear for now.

Long left the game when the injury occurred with less than three minutes to play. Long, in his first Pro Bowl after a successful rookie season, was playing at right tackle at the time as that is the position he manned the entire game for the AFC.

The injury happened when NFC rusher DeMarcus Ware rolled onto the side of Long's right ankle as Long was engaged with another player. Long remained on the turf in obvious pain or several minutes.

Long injured the same right ankle in the November loss to the New England Patriots but missed no playing time during the season.

The NFC beat the AFC, 30-21.
