Could there be trouble brewing in Miami? Reports of WR Mike Wallace not performing well have been coming out of South Florida since the end of OTAs. However, the intrigue increased when Wallace didn’t participate in Monday’s scrimmage while looking healthy. He also didn’t participate in team drills Wednesday night, after doing individual drills. Coach Joe Philbin has refused to discuss his star receiver’s status and though he’s discussed the receiving corps, he purposely has evaded any questions about Wallace. According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, Wallace is a mystery, while the rest of the receiving corps is banged up. Starting WR Brian Hartline has also missed some time, apparently with a leg injury. Wallace and Hartline absences leave the team with WR’s Brandon Gibson and Marvin McNutt as the first-team receivers. The Dolphins have lost Armon Binns for the season, which they had high hopes and Rishard Matthews who is suffering from a knee problem, and have signed three wideouts in the past four days. Jackson writes: ‘An upgraded Dolphins wide receiver unit continues to be beset by injuries, which has forced management to sign three players in the past four days. At least four receivers have sustained injuries in camp, and Mike Wallace also stood on the sideline for all of team drills during Wednesday night’s practice, for reasons the team would not explain. Wallace participated in individual drills and appeared to be moving normally. Coach Joe Philbin refused to discuss Wallace’s status or why he did not play in Monday’s scrimmage.’
