Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Gibson is out for the season with a torn patellar knee tendon.

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Gibson is out for the season with a knee injury.

More specifically, Gibson has a torn patellar knee tendon, per Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald. NFL.com's Dan Hanzus writes Gibson suffered the injury in the first half of Sunday's game against the Dolphins' AFC East division rivals, the New England Patriots. 

Hanzus writes,"Gibson was injured coming down on his left knee after attempting to make a leaping catch on a high Ryan Tannehill pass. He was limping badly as he came off the field." 

He eventually had to leave the game on a cart. 

Gibson's teammate and fellow wide receiver Mike Wallace spoke about the injury. 

"It's a tremendous loss. Brandon scored three touchdowns in the last two games, and we could definitely use that. But when Rishard came in the game he did a good job, and I think he'll continue to do that. You can't panic. We're not the only team this has happened to. We just have to keep pushing." 

Jackson confirms Rishard Matthews will be the Dolphins' No. 3 receiver in Gibson's absence. Offensive coordinator Mike Sherman declared he "has a lot of confidence" in him. 

Several free-agent wide receivers are also on tap. The team may also consider several receivers in its practice squad which include Ryan Spadola and Nathan Palmer. 

Gibson had 30 catches for 326 yards and three touchdowns prior to his season-ending injury. He had been one of the team's most effective receivers, as attested by quarterback Ryan Tannehill's 70 percent completion rate to him. 

He was signed to a three-year, $9.78 million contract by the team this summer

Gibson's loss, the second major one for Miami this season after tight end Dustin Keller's preseason ACL injury, is a big blow for the Dolphins (3-4) who are still third in their division despite a four-game losing streak.
