campinsider_072618

Highlights and observations from the first training camp practice at the Baptist Health Training Facility at Nova Southeastern University:

  • The first practice began with every player on the roster participating. This is the first time since 1997 that Dolphins training camp began with no players on either the Physically Unable to Perform list or the Non-Football Injury list.
  • Among those who missed time in the offseason program but practiced Thursday were wide receiver Leonte Carroo and defensive back Jordan Lucas.
  • The Dolphins practiced without pads, as per rules of the Collective Bargaining Agreement that forbid pads for the first couple of days of training camp.

  • Quarterback Ryan Tannehill trotted onto the field wearing a brace on his left knee. The words "Tannehill 2.0" were on the back of the brace.
  • Rookie seventh-round pick Jason Sanders did all the placekicking Thursday. He and rookie free agent Greg Joseph figure to rotate working days as they battle for the kicking job.
  • Joseph was 6-for-6 with a long of 52 yards.
  • On the first play of team drills, Tannehill completed a quick pass to wide receiver DeVante Parker.
  • The first play that drew a strong reaction from the crowd was a completion from Tannehill to wide receiver Danny Amendola down the middle of the field.
  • Linebacker Chase Allen had an interception on a pass that was deflected.
  • Rookie tight end Durham Smythe made a nice sliding catch on a low pass from quarterback David Fales off a rollout.
