Dolphins work in the bubble
After spending the first three and a half days of camp in the brutal South Florida heat, the Dolphins got a break from the sun in the cool air-conditioned climate of the practice bubble. That meant the session was closed to the public, but no worries, the team has announced they will hold a practice in Sun Life Stadium next Monday at 7:15 p.m that will be free and open to the public.
Passing game on display
Miami used the ideal climates to get extensive work done on their air attack. During a variety of different passing drills, Chad Henne reportedly went a combined 11 for 16, but had a few balls get away from him. Nothing to panic about, or even worry about for that matter, as the first week of camp is always a bit sloppy from top to bottom.
The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero also gave some insight into the team's one-on-one drills, which primarily feature receivers facing corners in single coverage. Salguero broke down every play. Some noteworthy statistics from the drill include Brandon Marshall snagging three receptions in four reps with two touchdowns, Vontae Davis jumping a Brian Hartline route for a pick-six against Henne, and Greg Camarillo beating Will Allen for two long touchdowns, using the same double-move on both occasions.
Jerry hasn't earned starting job yet
During the press conference following the morning session, Sparano mentioned that John Jerry has been working exclusively with the first team to get a feel for him against the first-team defense, not because he's the favorite to start. That same philosophy could apply to guys like Cameron Wake and Koa Misi at outside linebacker and first-round pick Jared Odrick at defensive end as well. By the way, the first-team interior offensive line included Donald Thomas (LG), Joe Berger (C), and John Jerry (RG).
