Dolphins DL Tony McDaniel will miss the team's Week Four game vs. the Patriots after being suspended by the NFL.

McDaniel was suspended for violating the league's personal conduct policy. He was arrested in February for domestic violence against his girlfriend.

 The way we see it

With DE Jared Odrick (fibula) out, McDaniel has seen his plays increase on the D-line, coming in to give either Randy Starks or Kendall Langford a spell as the Dolphins' top D-line sub. DEs Ryan Baker and Lionel Dotson will be the ones to replace McDaniel. Baker did not look good in one specific play against the Jets, letting a run play get right past him for a big gain up the middle. With the Patriots utilizing the run pretty well this season, the Dolphins may bring someone else in to take McDaniel's spot.
