Jake Long dismissed worries he re-injured his right ankle during the final minutes of Sunday's Pro Bowl by saying, the injury is, "nothing," and adding, "I feel fine," in his postcard from Hawaii on the Dolphins website.
Long suffered the injury when Dallas Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware rolled into his right ankle as Long was blocking another player. Long had injured the same ankle in a November loss to New England.
Time to breathe deep now. It's OK.
Long played well in this, his first Pro Bowl. He played exclusively at right tackle although he spent his entire rookie season as the left tackle anchor of the Miami offensive line. Long did not yield a sack during the game while both Michael Roos and Joe Thomas of the AFC gave up sacks.
