Field conditions are a concern Sunday in Miami before the Dolphins host the New York Jets at Hard Rock Stadium.

The University of Miami and Duke played Saturday in heavy rains and the turf was devoured in the process.

ESPN reported NFL officials were looking closely at the field Sunday morning and one league source told Adam Schefter “The field is horrendous.”

The Jets played at Miami last season in similar conditions on Oct. 17, leading to criticism of the league for allowing a game to be played on turf that consists of mostly shaky footing.
