Off the top, I will tell you Pat White is practiced today. You knew that would happen this morning if you saw the previous post on this blog posted before the Dolphins hit the field.
The second day of practice is underway here in Davie, FL with morning work going approximately two hours. the highlight?
The slapfight defensive end Tony McDaniel and guard Richie Incognito got into during one-on-one pass protection drills.
It began when McDaniel popped Incognito on the shoulder pads just after the whistle sounded, signaling both men to stop. Incognito, known for his often fiery, sometimes uncontrollable temper, then slapped at McDaniel's shoulder pads once.
And then took a swipe that connected at his teammates helmet.
The two walked away on their own.
On the next repetition against one another, the two got into it again and it became a bit more heated as they locked up. It took teammates to separate them this time. It's hot out here, folks. Tempers flare.
I noticed rookie Jared Odrick have his way on one pass rush against Cory Procter in one-on-one pass pro. Randy Starks broke down Jake Grove on another matchup. Grove, by the way, shared first-team snaps with Joe Berger at center today.
Rookie John Jerry, meanwhile, whiffed on an attempt to stop McDaniel during another pass pro repetition.
It must be said that after Brandon Marshall dominated practice Friday, he was somewhat quiet today. No big plays of note.
I watched punt and kick return drills and can report the Dolphins are obviously having tryouts for their punt and kick return jobs.
On punt returns, the candidates getting the opportunity are Davone Bess, Brian Hartline and Ryan Grice-Mullen.
The kick return job is open to a bigger cast of possibilities. Patrick Cobbs, Kory Sheets, Bess, Hartline, Grice-Mullen, Tristan Davis, Marlon Moore and Julius Pruitt.
Coach Tony Sparano is scheduled to speak abt 12:30. Check back.
