Quickie notes from morning minicamp practice

The Miami Dolphins just finished their first minicamp practice.

The housekeeping first: Restricted free agents Ronnie Brown and Anthony Fasano were present although they have not signed their tender. Brown, by the way, said he would eventually sign the tender. He also said he has not been offered a long-term contract by the Dolphins.

Patrick Turner, Brandon Marshall (hip), Lionel Dotson, Nate Garner (foot/toe), and Jason Ferguson (quad) were not practicing as they are all continuing to treat injuries. The new one of those is Dotson, who did participate in OTAs but sat out this morning. It is still unclear what injury exactly Turner is nursing.

Inside linebacker Channing Crowder, who missed the last OTA session as he continues to recover from foot surgery, was on the field today. Good news there.

Phillip Merling, who was arrested for aggravated domestic battery Wednesday, was at practice today but did not speak with any reporters today.

Now the more interesting (to me) news: Rookie Koa Misi worked with the first-team defense today. He was at the weakside outside linebacker spot. It was interesting to see Misi match up with Jake Long on one play during team drills. Um, Long won the battle blocking him one-on-one.

Left guard John Jerry, a third-round pick, also worked with the first-team offensive line this practice.

It was a good practice for Chris Clemons in that he came up with an interception of Chad Henne on a pass intended for John Nalbone but somewhat overthrown.

It was not a great practice for Nalbone. He dropped at least one pass that I though aside from not really making a great effort for the Henne pass that was picked off.

Second-team quarterback Tyler Thigpen was erratic. He overthrew a potential TD in the back corner of the end zone and was also late on the throw. But he followed that with a nice TD pass to Fasano.

By the way, Sean Smith spent a good bit of time talking about his offseason and so forth. The topic of his ZERO interceptions last year came up. Smith is apparently confident that number will change:

"I guarantee it will not be that number this year," Smith said. "That's for sure."

Finally, want to give some props to reserve running back Kory Sheets. He's locked in a tough battle for a roster spot. But in this practice he looked very quick and decisive in his runs.

[Check back as Tony Sparano will speak at 1:45 and I will update as necessary.]

TIME FOR MY MEATBALL SUB .

This blog is becoming nearly unreadable with morons pretending to be other people and virtually no one speaking about the Dolphins.

Do whatever you are going to do idiots but you are ruining this blog for every other Dolphin fan who wants real discussion about the team. If I didn't know better, I would say that most of the people doing this are from places like NY, NJ and other northeastern parts of the country where most a-holes originate from.

Something must be going on. Nothing at the SS and the Post has 21 things we learned.

Armando write good stuff and no one comes here anymore cause Home and ALoco talk crap ALL DAY. Sad, this used to be good blog, now it nothing but waste of time. This is my last day here, let Home and ALoco stay and talk to each other all day

FinFan.that's"Profiling"And wont be permitted on this Blog(Unless your from Arizona)............

"profiling" or not, when the shoe fits....

I agree with Willy @ 7:31pm,there are other sites to get good Dolphin information and have good discussions with other fans without 90% of the blog filled with idiots talking stupid stuff. Whatever, but I hope the real fans have a great holiday weekend...

I AGREE WITH FINFAN
