Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Gibson isn't expected to return to the game after injuring his knee against the New England Patriots.

Gibson was hurt late in the first quarter Sunday.

The Dolphins were leading 7-0 at the time following a 4-yard touchdown pass from Ryan Tannehill to Gibson.

Gibson entered the game with 29 receptions, second-most on the Dolphins, and two touchdown receptions, both coming the previous Sunday in a 23-21 loss to the Buffalo Bills.
