Quick practice report: Day 2

The second day of Dolphins training camp showed small improvement for the offense. But not much.

Instead of three bad quarterback-center snaps/exchanges there was only one.

There were also three interceptions -- Jason Trusnick, Brent Grimes and Reshad Jones with a fine one-handed pick -- to go along with a couple of fumbles, including one by Lamar Miller.

Oh yes, and Olivier Vernon and Cameron Wake continue to get the better of tackles Branden Albert and rookie Ja'Wuan James. Vernon had a sack vs. Albert. Wake is giving James multiple good lessons in what he should expect during the 2014 season.

Of all the poor plays by the offense, the one that sticks out most is the Jones interception. On that play, Ryan Tannehill had an open Mike Wallace down the field but for some inexplicable reason, the quarterback holds the ball perhaps a second or a beat too long. And so by the time he releases the ball, a wide open receiver is now not so open, and by the time the ball arrives, the defense has fully recovered and, well, Jones gets the interception.

Tannehill did complete a nice deep pass to receiver Damian Williams along the right sideline. Will Davis got beat on that one.

Davis, however, seemed to have a good day. He broke up a couple of other passes.

By the way, you should be impressed with the fact Brandon Gibson is so far showing no signs of the patellar ligament tear that shortened his 2013 season. He's practicing well and is clearly picking up where he left off with Tannehill on the chemistry front.

On the injury front, DE Derrick Shelby (knee) did not practice for the second consecutive day. DT Jared Odrick missed parts of practice early for an unknown reason but participated later.
