This truck loaded with TV broadcast equipment was stolen in Miami. The trailer was recovered; the truck remains missing.

DirecTV and CBS sports broadcaster Rich Eisen in Miami for tonight’s Buffalo Bills vs. Miami Dolphins NFL game posted this message on Twitter yesterday:  “Breaking News: the satellite truck we had booked to do our show in Miami tomorrow has been stolen. This is not a drill.”

But, fortunately, the show and the game will go on.

Miami-Dade police said the trailer filled with the broadcast equipment needed for the pre-game show was found Wednesday night in northeast Miami-Dade County. The tractor, however, is still missing.

The truck belongs to NEP, a Pittsburgh-based broadcasting company.

Game Creek Video, which provides production facilities for the NFL Network, said there was “no danger whatsoever that the Dolphins-Bills game will not be televised.”

Miami (5-4) hosts AFC East Division rival Buffalo (5-4) at 8:30 p.m.
