Vernon had 46 tackles and 6.5 sacks during the 2014 season.

Vernon's numbers weren't anywhere near close to what he up last season as he just wasn't able to get to the quarterback on a consistent basis. More will be expected of the third year player next season.

Vernon suffered a back injury during practice Monday, according to the Miami Herald.

The extent of the injury is not yet known yet but it's not expected to be serious. Dion Jordan's suspension makes it imperative that Vernon remain healthy for at least the early part of the season.

ESPN Dolphins reporter James Walker pegs RE Olivier Vernon as a player whose stock continues to rise.

Vernon led the Dolphins with his 11.5 sacks last season and returned to have a dominant spring. "He's real, real good," said new LT Branden Albert, who was beaten by Vernon for two sacks in a scrimmage last week. Vernon remains ahead of last year's No. 3 overall pick Dion Jordan for the starting job opposite LE Cameron Wake. The defensive line is the clear strength of the team in Miami.

Dolphins RE Olivier Vernon is tied for sixth in the NFL in sacks (10.5) and earned AFC Defensive Player of the Week honors in Week 13.

He earned the honor by sacking Jets quarterbacks three times Sunday. The Dolphins' defensive line has been their brightest spot on a disappointing team, with Vernon bookending Cameron Wake, who has 6.5 sacks. Vernon won't get any Pro Bowl votes because he's not even on the ballot. "That's a guy that's not getting as much attention as he probably needs to be, or the credit that he deserves," said Ben Roethlisberger of Vernon in a pre-game conference call Wednesday. "He's playing at an extremely high level right now."
