The Dolphins are back on the practice field this morning ... well, at least some of them.
Kicker Caleb Sturgis is dealing with a groin injury and will miss multiple practices. The Dolphins are going without a kicker in practice today and may or may not sign a kicker during the week. The injury is not serious, however, and I would not be surprised if Sturgis is the kicker on Friday evening against the Atlanta Falcons in the preseason opener.
Tight end Charles Clay (knee), quarterback Pat Devlin (hamstring), cornerback Jalil Brown (knee) and wide receiver Stephen Williams (ankle) are also out today and are expected to miss multiple practices and perhaps the preseason opener.
On the bright side for the team, receiver Mike Wallace, who has been nursing a sore hamstring, is back at practice today at least on a limited basis.
Backup quarterback Matt Moore, who also missed multiple practices and the scrimmage with a sore right shoulder, is also back at practice today at least on a limited basis.
During the early part of today's practice, newly signed Samson Satele was taking second-team snaps at center while Sam Brenner was getting first-team work at center.
Nate Garner, who spent time at center with the starters last week, is back at tackle today.
[Update: Satele is now getting first team work at center. That was quick.]
[Update: Both tight end Michael Egnew and defensive end Olivier Vernon left the field with trainers. Obviously attending to medical issues. Dion Jordan replaced Vernon with the first-team defense.]
[Update: Egnew is being tested for concussion symptoms.]
