Everyone ready to go with one exception

The Dolphins are back to work as their bye week had ended. I'm also back to work.

This morning the team is on the field and everyone is present and accounted for as healthy ... except for cornerback Richard Marshall.

The player who missed the past three weeks of practice and was out against St. Louis and Cincinnati is not practicing this morning. He is the only one still not practicing.

Some interesting things are on the horizon this week:

Following his performance against St. Louis that included a touchdown grab, receiver Marlon Moore is probably expecting that he's established himself as a target in sub packages when Miami goes three-wide. Well, that isn't quite true.

It seems Moore and Jabar Gaffney will continue to compete for playing time. Gaffney, signed three weeks ago, has not been active for either of the two games he's been on the roster. That is primarily a result of Gaffney being rusty and not fully functional with the playbook.

One assumes the extra week has helped Gaffney get more acclimated thus the on-going competition with Moore.

[BLOG NOTE: The two coordinators will meet with the media today so come back later for the update of that and other things.]
