Miami Dolphins back at work: What's happening...

The Dolphins are back at work -- well, most of them.

Wide receiver Brandon Gibson is not practicing today. Also, defensive end Derrick Shelby is not with the team as he's been suspended indefinitely for conduct detrimental to the team following his arrest over the weekend at a South Florida club.

Shelby is on the "Indefinite Club Suspension" list, according to the Dolphins. The team today released a statement saying coach Joe Philbin had spoken with Shelby, is "disappointed"by Shelby's arrest, and then added, "When we have completed all of the necessary diligence, we will make a final determination on his discipline."

Agent David Canter, who represents Shelby, also released a statement saying he was "disappointed to hear that the organization has decided to suspend Shelby" and that his defense attorney Daniel Rosenberg had already entered a not guilty plea on the player's behalf.

Shelby was arrested for resisting arrest without violence and trespassing early Saturday.

Anyway, suffice to say Shelby's future on the team is uncertain.

Onto the field...

Randy Starks, who missed the Oakland victory prior to the bye weekend because of a back issue, is practicing today.

Reshad Jones, back from suspension, is expected to work some with the starters. But Jimmy Wilson, his replacement the first four games of the season, is also expected to get first-team snaps at safety this week.

Running back Knowshon Moreno, out the past three weeks with an elbow injury, is practicing today at least on a limited basis. He hopes to play on Sunday against Green Bay although no final determination has been made on that front.
