Tight ends Charles Clay and Michael Egnew started the game as the Dolphins used a two tight end formation. Rookie Dion Sims also saw a decent amount of action as the Dolphins employed all three of their tight ends in an effort to make up for the loss of projected starter Dustin Keller to a season-ending knee injury.

The trio combined for five receptions for 54 yards. But they all belonged to Clay. On the down side, Clay was called for holding and illegal motion.

I was pleasantly surprised to see Clay get 5 catches. After what I saw in the preseason I wasn't expecting more than a catch or two.

How is Egnew and Dion Sims getting a few snaps out of necessity, "being involved?"

LOL .... only per the Miami Dolphins press team.

Face it, we're a 3WR kind of team right now. Production out of Clay will be mostly manufactured, but not in a pure TE seam-running sense of the word. They'll move him around in attempt to create mismatches.

Correct me if I'm wrong (I was watching the game with friends so I was distracted. I'll watch it again on NFL Game Rewind), but most, if not all, of Clay's catches came with him initially lined up in the backfield, right?

I believe you're correct. I saw him on the line a few times but I even recall the announcers saying Clay was running routes out of the backfield.
