“There’s going to be good competition and I think we have some good players there,” Head Coach Joe Philbin said. “Once again part of my job is to develop players along with our offensive staff and our receivers coaches. That’s what we get paid to do and part of it is we’ve got to make good decisions based on the people that we have on the roster at this point in time. We’ve got to have some faith in them that they’re going to develop and they’re going to perform at a certain level. … I’m confident we’re going to get good receiver play here.”
##The three quarterbacks healthy at this time –
##Tannehill continues to look good throwing on the run as he connected with
##When Moore came in with the 1s during a red zone drill he benefited from a circus catch by running back
##Miami’s front four performed well against the run with their backs up against their own end zone, as defensive end
##Second-year running back
##Philbin and his staff conducted the practice one player down for the second straight day but did not rule out filling that vacant spot before the team leaves for Charlotte, N.C. on Thursday in advance of the second preseason game at the Carolina Panther.
CBSSPORTS.COM’S PETE PRISCO IN THE HOUSE: The train of national writers making their way to Davie continued today as Pete Prisco of CBSSports.com showed up to watch practice.
Prisco is based out of Jacksonville and had intended on coming down tomorrow but decided to get a leg up on his Dolphins homework. Had he come a day earlier he would have experienced a not-so-fun thunderstorm that interrupted yesterday’s practice.
“Quarterback, quarterback, quarterback. It’s always about the quarterback,” said Prisco when asked what he was watching the closest. “I also heard a lot about Coach Philbin’s practices and that he runs a quick-tempo practice, which I like. Why waste time?”
