Men in black; McCain down, McCain up; Bowman back

The Miami Dolphins secondary is all but certainly going to be without a starter on Sunday.

Cornerback Brice McCain, nursing a right knee injury, missed practice for the second consecutive day and his chances of playing against the Houston Texans seem dim. McCain suffered the injury last week against Tennessee.

That means rookie Bobby McCain will likely be the nickel cornerback as he was last week against the Titans once McCain went down and Jamar Taylor will start for the Dolphins.

Zack Bowman, who missed practice Wednesday due to a personal issue, returned to practice today.

So I walked into the Miami Dolphins locker room today and thought I was covering the Oakland Raiders.

Apparently on orders of head coach Dan Campbell, and without explanation to players, there were black jerseys laid out for every offensive player today. That was their practice wear.

The look was of a solid black jersey and white number.

"Yuck," Cameron Wake exclaimed as he walked past offensive linemen wearing the gear.

I'll update after practice on what Campbell's idea means.

[Update: Brandon Albert told reporters the offense won at practice on Wednesday and so they got the cool (hot in the sun) jerseys today.]
