Dolphins WR Mike Wallace not expected to play in Hall of Fame Game due to groin injury

New, comments

It doesn't appear Dolphins fans will get their first look in quasi-real game situations this evening at free agent prize Mike Wallace. Reports suggest he will miss tonight's game due to a groin injury.

Former Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace missed the final game of the 2012 season due to a hamstring injury...or to protect him from injury in a meaningless game before he struck it rich on the free agent market.

Either way, Wallace now has a real groin injury, and will likely miss Miami's preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys tonight at 7 p.m. ET.

It hasn't been confirmed, but Wallace is reportedly with the team, but not preparing for the game, which starts in less than two hours.

Wallace signed a 5-year, $60 million deal with Miami this offseason, and looks to be one of several very hyped additions to a Dolphins team that hasn't finished over .500 since 2008.
