The practice report from the practice that never was

Although the Dolphins have not been practicing on Thursdays, using it as their off day, the NFL mandates teams release an injury report that day for Sunday's game. (It doesn't mandate a Tuesday injury report although the Dolphins actually do practice that day).

So today the Dolphins put out their practice report from the practice that never was.

And in that fictional injury report, cornerback Dimitri Patterson, who coaches decided not to play last week because of a groin injury, didn't practice after being limited in an actual real practice on Wednesday.

That means Patterson isn't necessarily getting better -- fictionally speaking.

S Chris Clemons (hamstring) and DT Paul Soliai (knee) would not have practiced had the Dolphins actually worked Thursday, so they were listed as not practicing on the fictional injury report. Soliai is not playing on Sunday.

And quarterback Ryan Tannehill (right throwing shoulder) continued to lead a group of six players who would have been limited in practice had the Dolphins, you know, practiced -- which they didn't. The others who would have been limited are Will Davis (toe), Pat Devlin (ankle) Koa Misi (right knee), Jamar Taylor (groin), Jimmy Wilson (groin).

Mike Wallace, who missed time in the preseason with a groin injury, apparently tweaked the thing at some point Wednesday because he appeared on the fictional injury report today. It apparently is not serious as Wallace is listed as full practice had ... the ... Dolphins ... actually ... practiced.

Which they did not.

Interesting perhaps only to me: Four Dolphins players are suffering pains in the groin.

(At least one sportwriter, also).

In the world of real practices and reports based on actual events, Falcons left tackle Sam Baker (knee/foot) and cornerback Asante Samuel (thigh) missed practice for the second time this week. WR Roddy White (ankle) is managing the injury a bit better as he was limited in practice after missing drills altogether Wednesday.

The Dolphins are back to work tomorrow and will release an injury and practice report that will reflect what happened in a real practice.

Ah, the NFL.

wow now we are banged up

Sunday is almost a sell out. The fans are jumping back on the bandwagon. Now's a good time to embrace these players. The stadium will loud and electric.

Can't wait for the Dolphins injury report to start stacking names. This team has no depth. You can't buy a team in the NFL, this isn't the NBA (Heat). Despite 2-0, Phins will still struggle to win eight games.

FIRE IRELAND

CONVICT PHILBIN

BOYCOTT THE FINS UNTIL IRELAND IS FIRED! WE ARE SICK AND TIRED OF LOSING! WE ARE SICK AND TIRED OF THE INCOMPETENT CLASSLESS GM! BOYCOTT AND HELP MAKE THE CHANGE!

It seems that that Dolphins drafted "damaged goods".
Dion Jordan, shoulder surgery; and Jamar Taylor, a hernia operation. What were they thinking?

Irescum is working for the Jests.

Previous blog:

H-shock, I think its more new region wanting to go in a "new direction" than Weedon's so awful. By nfl standards Weedon's already far along in "his prime" by age alone, although he's only a 2nd yr qb.
By the time great weapons are built around him he's at least 32-33yr old qb. Unless he's he's Brees-Brady-P Manning caliber, no gm really wants this.
So, as gm, you don't want your fate married to a qb the previous regime "had visions for". Since it wasn't your vision, you haven't vision of the end game of this vision either.

The above comments are not what I would expect from fans of a team with a good chance to open the season 3 and 0 with two of them coming on the road. Philbin and Ireland are looking pretty smart to me, though I presently wish the Dolphins would have kept Long or got the OT from KC. I'll be a sad man if Tannehill, who has looked great, gets injured from poor protection.

Perhaps, if Tannehill were 7-8yrs along in career, I would be concerned about the ailing shoulder. He's still young enough to quickly recover if the shoulder's not actually injured.

Patterson, if not starting Sunday is far more worrisome. Falcons have one of best receiving corps in the league. Patterson starting against(Roddy White) is problematic, not to mention Carroll in that role.

Carroll did a good against Reggie Wayne, but, we know "consistency" has been Carroll's primary issue in Miami. I wouldn't bet my money on Carroll and good back to back games. It would make for a good day to start Roddy White on your fantasy team.

Injured picks...maybe that is why they were available ??

Risky move by Ireland. I really like Dion Jordan, but we needed a top flight OLineman....Phins have given up 9 sacks in 2 games !!! Tannehill won't get to the break -bye at this rate, already with a hurt shoulder. DLine is and was before the draft the position with most depth.

Wow...9 sacks in two games from two meager defenses.

Ireland,Ireland,Ireland....

Here come the trolls!!! Armando, take care of it!!!

Tannehill sack numbers would be about 5 with better pass rush anticipation(pocket presence) and getting ball out quicker.

His pocket presence actually got a tad bit better against Indy. He only needs constituency to get better. I noticed his pocket presence(rush anticipation) was slightly better gm2 against Indy than gm1 against Browns.

Still needs to find safe places to "throw away" to avoid sacks. Guess this could happen when he gets a few hundreths of a second quicker with "his reads".

Um Boycottison... We're winning. Can we just fire idiot fans like you instead?

Agreed, Weeden's ugliest side has always been his old age. I just can't foresee a brighter future for whatever QB they draft next year as long as he has to play behind such an OL.

IRELAND SUCKS A FAT ONE

bunch of idiots Ireland has fielded prob the best group of players we have had since the late 90's......facking idiots

Every team has injuries, Atlanta's are pretty significant as well.

Geezuz...we are 2 - 0....and we can beat Atlanta..we have the Defense to limit them to under 17 and the Offense to score over 20 points....

...why in the hell is there so much negativity?????

..we are home and favored by 2 or 3....

GO FINS!!!! BEAT ATLANTA!!!!!

H-shock, exactly why Browns need a young qb like Manziel. Bridgewater's more prototypical pocket passer and will need extremely more pocket protection.

Always funny to see a whole bunch of new posters on here, who one of us have ever seen before.

No surprise why that's happening, looks like someone hasn't taken their meds today.

off topic...
after seeing how good the chiefs in their all red uniforms looked, i'd love to see the fins use aqua pants with their aqua jerseys.

There could actually be people feeling free to post now that most of the dredges have been more or less removed. That's why I say w practice what we preach and not call people idiots or put them down. Lead by example is what Armando wants from us I think.

For what it's worth I beat the Falcons on Madden 25, 42-32. I play on All-Madden or harder with custome sliders. It makes stopping the running game almost impossible. If the computer ran every play I would lose every game. A little off balance there, hopefully they patch it up.

Injuries are Ireland fault?????
Idiots are also Ireland fault.

All-Madden is lame...the game is meant to be played on all=pro...pack a lunch Darkoak...I will take you to school...

Woo!!!

Jones had almost 200 yards receiving against the Rams...that can't happen Sunday...

Just imagine how much negativity would be on this blog if we hadn't won our first two games...

It's too easy on All-Pro, I usually just play franchises against the computer. Played online a bit but people are too cheesy there, onside kicks constantly and exploits and crap. And if they aren't beating you they bail before you win.

But I'll take ya on sometime for sure. I'll warn you though I've been playing since 1993, so I'm kind of a badass.

What system???

Just enjoy the what we've got going for a minute fin fans

THILL suffered the shoulder injury in the 3rd QTR last week. He played just fine after that. He practiced on Monday and Tuesday. He will be fine. This kid is a gamer and turning into a leader. I love the progression he is showing.

Much to my surprise Carroll has played pretty solid so far. He did give up a few plays in both games but considering he is not a true starting CB in the NFL, I think he has done pretty well. I am not so worried about Taylor, Patterson or Allen. Carroll can man up against an injured Roddy White. Coyles should assign Grimes to Julio Jones for the entire game. He will serve the Fins well there. I think Gonzalez presents some mismatches and he will be a big target in the Red Zone. Overall the Fins will field enough CB's to play well against Atlanta.

My bet is Clabo steps up this Sunday and doesn't let up a sack this week. He has pride in his game and he is still burning that Atlanta cut him to save $'s. He is on the record with local media calling himself out for needing to improve. Class act from a solid Veteran. We haven't see that much from the dolts that have passed through the Fins' OLine this past decade.

Easy against the computer...sure...but the players movements and the general flow of the game is all-pro...all day...

3-0 is in the Fins' Future.

27-17 Final Score....Fin's Win!!!

Awesome jpao...now I can get some laundry done on Sunday instead...who's next??? Nawlins'...

Darkoak...if you have a PS3...thaest1981...that's where I am...

The production from Shelby with only 20 snaps on D compared to Vernons 90 is rediculous. More shelby time on the field please coach.

I am mentally challenged and a moron on top of that.

We used the look in the Wannstedt ERA on Night games, remember one in particular at Home Vs. the Bears with The Stache running Ricky on 44 Carries to a victory were he kisses Ricky's helmet when Williams walked off the field and Ricky didn't look especially happy. I think it may have been the moment Williams thought to himself his infamous, "This clown is going to run me into the ground" Statement!

Hey Fins Suck, I would like to suck our fat one bro.
We can be the gay-douche twins

Craig M,

I haven't been here in quite a while but I see you still dealing with a bunch of brainless turds...

I mean, Ireland and PHilbin are doing a heck of a job and we are 2-0..amazing there's still people that complain.

lol...

But that's another story altogether...

PS: I've been mixing it up so far(for a change). This week I think I'm going to break out the Dark Barcardi! To win this one we're going to have to find the right Grove and Feel. This Victory is going to have "The Barcardi Feel!"

We are going to DOMINATE the Falcons!!!!


The Pilgrim(Philbin)has puposely made Thursday a day off so to confuse the ideocrats of the NFL,not to mention the sinners in Vegas who are waiting for the injury report so they can tweak the odds and bet themselves to change the odds.

FINS 42 FALCONS 3

Posted by: Sam I Am | September 19, 2013 at 06:38 PM

Agreed bro, although I'm not sure if their new FO is looking for pocket awareness and mobility as GM Lombardi seems to value drop-back QBs the most.

Anyway I hope they stop looking at their actual QB like the root of all evil for their own good (and Weeden's too).

,it took 2 regular season games for the excuses to start amassing.3-13

,hm.the team can flourish or flush coming this Sunday.
FLUSH ! ?

Hey, Sparano was 11-5 so I wouldnt annoint Philbin anything at 9-9.

During Sparano's 11-5 1st season Finfans were calling him the next Vince Lombardi.

Henne = Marino.LMAO

It's certainly important, for a number of reasons, that the 'Phins win this week. One is to show everyone that they are going to be a factor in the run to the playoffs, that they are legitimate and to keep their fans who are going to come close to filling the stadium this Sunday a reason to come back.

I'm certainly a fan but this Sunday is really important, not only for the fans but for the players. After so many bad years some may not have the feeling of being winners (don't blame them!). This win would change everything. If they lose the season won't be over but it's needed to change minds. Both players and fans.

You to ehhhhhh!

I don't refer to it as mixing it up as much as giving equal opportunity to some fabled friends.....

Dark Bacardi, ahhhhh! Well when going that route highly recommend select, Black or the Grand Daddy Bacardi 1873 Solera and must be had in short glass served in a double shots and dry! Real shame watching people adulterate such a fine beverage with soda and ice!

Jack I'll add ya and if I see you on there I'll hit you up for a game sometime.

Bacardi 1873 is a fine thing.

Been thinking this very thing since last Sunday! Fantastic post, very true! I went to the Jets and Rams games last Yr. and it seems every Yr. the number of opposing fans and neutral (giving a name to the locals who come in couples for the pageantry and drinks) fans. It drove me out of my mind last Yr. this group in front of me with the women on their I-Phones talking stupidity non-stop with barely a look towards the field!

We really have some of the worst (South Beach) Cubavera shirt, flip flop wearing fans. God I hope Joe Robbie is flipping in his grave for not fighting the City of Miami harder about the 100 Mil. renovation in 1983 with then Mayor Maurice Ferre who inexplicably fought the renovations tooth-n-nail which offered S.B.'s (NFL guaranteed a S.B.) to his City in retrospect a real bad move for the City which lost both the Canes and Fins whose fans bought revenue to the area.

That Baseball Stadium on the Old OB sight is a sacrilegious eye sore. Robbie unknowingly gave the Urban Fanbase to the Heat who were Dolphan Diehards back in the day, I remember it and NO it isn't about the Heat's resent Titles either! If you ever went to a Heat game in the Old Overtown Arena you know that the fans have been going that way for sometime and it has to do with the distance to the Stadium to see a live Football game were there's no public transportation (Heat still have the Metro-Rail and People-Mover)!

Both the Canes and Fins should still be playing in the City of Miami on that property growing with the ever expanding Downtown area not stuck in some suburb with half the community in Dade and the other half in Broward! I really liked the idea of a new Stadium but hated moving the team to a venerable no-mans land on Countyline Rd.

And adulturate they DO! We were "Partying" with some "Younger People(My Honey's Friends of course)" and this is what they decided too "Sacrifice" to the Party Gods!

I think they brought it, trying to be impressive. Because they didn't know what to do with it.

It's a little Pricey, but if you've had any experience with it, you would know better than to mix it with Soda. I don't care what kind.

I'll tell you what though, I'm not real savy when it comes to alcohol and proper etiquette. But I can almost instinctively figure out the best way to enjoy.

Solera is almost like Barcardi's version of a Good Bourbon! I don't know if you're supposed to or not, but I put it over some ice(crushed preferably)with a Good Twist
=======

Thanks, now that you bring it up, I think this is the route I'll Go. We are SO going to kick the Falcon's ass.

AwwwwwwwRiiiiiight MIAMI!!!!

Steve Ross save the Dolphins. SELL THE TEAM!

Just played a guy on Madden picked him off 5 times and scored a pick 6 then he quit.

Seen the Eagles play in all 3 of there games now this Yr. and one thing is increasingly clear, they have ZERO D this Season. I have always been a Vick fan (posted to DEATH that the Tuna should have signed him instead of drafting Pat White) but this D can't take them to a Div. Title! The T.O.'s are KILLING them as well!

complain away, but these are the same issues (nagging injuries/depth) that affect every team--Broncos feeling great right now about Clady?
