And another thing about the Dolphins receivers ...
... Nah, just kidding.
The injury report is out and, as usual, the other team is a lot more beat up than the Dolphins. (Don't tell me the Parcells offseason workout program of lifting those dead weights doesn't work.)
The Dolphins are listing Akin Ayodele (back) as having participated in today full practice while Joey Porter (hamstring) and Phillip Merling (ankle) were limited in drills. Merling, by the way, was still heavily wrapped and limping.
Porter seems poised to return to action against the Jets after missing last week's game versus Buffalo. “Joey was not completely full but did a good amount of work, he was limited," coach Tony Sparano said.
The Jets had starting right tackle Damien Woody (ankle) and cornerback Donald Strickland (ankle) sit out drills altogether.
WR Jerricho Cotchery (hamstring), S Kerry Rhodes (knee) and CB Lito Sheppard (quadricep) will limited during practice. LB Larry Izzo (hamstring), S Jim Leonhard (knee) and LB Bryan Thomas (wrist) were able to work through the entire practice.
One more thing, although the game is Monday and the deadline for selling the game out is Friday night, the Dolphins believe it is a practical certainty the game will be sold out. In fact, the Dolphins expect their biggest crowd of the season so far on Monday night.
