Tweets from Sun Sentinel writers Omar Kelly and Mike Berardino as they cover Dolphins Training Camp on Saturday:http://www.sun-sentinel.com/sports/miam ... 3922.story
The Sun-Sentinel is reporting that rookie ILBer Austin Spitler had salmonella poisoning. Spent 2 nights in the hospital. Lost 15 pounds.
Rookie CB Nolan Carroll spent a little bit of time working as the team's nickel cornerback. That's a step in the right direction.
Randy Starks looked like he got winded during Saturday's scrimmaged. I'm not sure he can play more than 30 snaps right now.
For the record, Dolphins OLBer Koa Misi did nothing special today, which means I'm still waiting to see him flash something.
"I'm a put my feet in some ice.I'm hurting right now, my whole body.I need some rest. As much rest as I can get," Dansby on day off tomorrow
"I'm blessed to be versatile. God gave me a gift and I'm just trying to use it," said Karlos Dansby, who was dropping DEEP into coverage.
Rookie WR Roberto Wallace produced a nice long catch from Tyler Thigpen. Problem was Lionel Dotson would have sacked him before the throw
DE Ryan Baker produced a deflection, came right after a QB pressure from him at LDE vs. Garner. Baker admits he isn't working at NT much now
Here's a difference between Donald Thomas and Richie Incognito at that LG battle. Thomas pulls much better. Gets to 2nd line of defense.
Nate Garner took a few reps with the first team at left guard late in the scrimmage. He'd previously been working at RT.
Nate Ness broke up an endzone pass to Roberto Wallace during the redzone work. Don't know what Ness will play (CB or FS) but he makes plays.
New Dolphins TE David Martin admits he's not in ideal shape and needs to get his football legs under him. But he's the 2nd TE right now.
Brandon Marshall said when rumbling of David Martin returning to the team got around the leftover players "got all excited" Now he see's why
Tyler Thigpen threw a touchdown pass in the back of the endzone to David Martin during 7-on-7 drills.
Chad Pennington's arm is clearly an issue. His balls are fluttering these days and cornerbacks get good breaks on them.
ILBer Austin Spitler was back at practice after missing sessions since Tuesday.
Sean Smith got to the quarterback on a corner blitz, beating FB Rolly Lombala. Cornerbacks are coming a lot. Not telling you who's dropping.
DE Charles Grant who has spent all week on the third team line, produced 3 sacks and is a threat as a pass rusher. Can u say nickel package
Pat White had a respectable day. I didn't see it for myself, but I'm told he didn't soil his diaper during the scrimmage.
Sean Smith made a nice breakup on a pass to Marshall to redeem himself from a week of schooling. Brandon actually said he's catching up
Some of my overall observations..The defense kicked the offense's backside. Blitzes from everywhere. Too much mixing and matching on offense
