Jarvis Landry and DeVante Parker both posted career-high numbers against the New York Jets on Sunday, but it was Rishard Matthews' injury that is the storyline in Miami.
Matthews took a big hit from safety Calvin Pryor in the first quarter and was unable to return after exiting with a rib injury. Matthews is the Dolphins' No. 2 wide receiver and is in the midst of a breakout season, but he may miss some time in the coming weeks.
According to Rand Getlin of NFL Network, Matthews has "multiple fractured ribs," and his timetable to return is unclear.
Matthews is second on the team in receptions (43) and receiving yards (662), only trailing Jarvis Landry in both categories. He's already set career highs in every relevant statistic, including a team-high four touchdown receptions.
Parker is expected to see more time on the field with Matthews injured. He caught four passes for 80 yards and a touchdown against the Jets on Sunday and could emerge as a weapon for Tannehill down the stretch.

Week 12 at New York Jets
Rishard Matthews had just one catch for 15 yards last week as the Dolphins offense struggled. Ryan Tannehill finished with less than 200 passing yards, so it's understandable why Matthews didn't have big numbers, either. This week, Matthews draws a tough matchup against the Jets. He won't be going against Revis, but we still don't like the game. He should be viewed as a WR4 this week.
