Tony Sparano continually says that news on injured players returning to practice must be met with perspective because the practice they return is not really the most important time in their recovery.
The day after is the most important.
Today, Vernon Carey was practicing for the second consecutive day and is obviously working with the starting unit. He is showed no signs of setback following his return to practice Wednesday after missing the Oakland game with an ankle injury. Carey was in fact so spry, he was jogging from drill to drill in practice.
So barring an unexpected setback, Carey will be back to his starting role against Philadelphia.
