Misi, Gillislee leave Miami Dolphins practice early

Middle linebacker Koa Misi and running back Mike Gillislee left today's first padded practice early with apparent medical issues.

The Dolphins do not disclose injuries unless the players are out for multiple days. Misi left the field after removing his cleats and having his foot/ankle area looked at. Gillislee left the field and seemed to be suffering from some sort of heat related issues.

Misi is expected to be the starting linebacker but after he went out the Dolphins moved Dannell Ellerbe, the starter last year, back to the middle linebacker job.

More information as it becomes available.

More injury management news:

Receiver Brandon Gibson participated in the first half of today's practice but once contact got more aggressive he was ordered to stop working. He stayed on the field after removing his pads and helmet and watched.

Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said last week the team expected to manage Gibson's return to practices and contact. Gibson, who practiced the first two unpadded practices this training camp, is recovering from surgery to repair a torn patellar tendon -- an injury that forced him to miss nine 2013 games.

Cornerback Cortland Finnegan also seemed to be limited in today's practice. He was dressed out and participated in all individual drills. But he skipped many of the team drills.

Jamar Taylor took the team-drill snaps with the first-team defense.

Free agent guard Davonte Wallace missed all of practice with an unknown issue.

The Dolphins practiced in pads for the first time. They will do so 11 times this training camp, the next time coming Tuesday after getting Monday off.
