Jordan Cameron did indeed suffer a concussion in Sunday’s win over the Browns and will not play Thursday against Cincinnati, Dolphins coach Adam Gase announced Monday.

That makes four concussions in as many years for Cameron -- a flashing red warning signal in the age of CTE. Cameron suffered three of those concussions while with Cleveland, but did not have one in 2015, his first year with the Dolphins.”

"I think if anybody had any concerns in this organization, that would have been brought to me,” Gase said. “I know that I've been around a few guys that over time, it has gone up. I know Wes [Welker] had quite a few before I was with him in Denver, and then we had too many when I was with him in those last couple of years.”

Gase added: “We're always trying to look for things and help our players, safety-wise, with concussions. I know we'll always have those discussions to make sure that we do whatever's best for him so he's not in harm's way.”

Gase provided updates on a number of other injuries Monday.

Most notably: Arian Foster is all but certain to miss his second straight game with a groin injury.

“It would be tough for us to get himi back this week,” Gase said.

Meanwhile, there are big questions on the offensive line. Left tackle Branden Albert and center Anthony Steen both suffered ankle injuries Sunday.

They, Jelani Jenkins (groin) and Koa Misi (neck) will all be evaluated throughout the week.
