Found July 30, 2013 on Phin Nation:
The Miami Dolphins had their first dress rehearsal on Monday night, again practicing against themselves.   The Dolphins offense got off to a slow start, totaling just 1 first down on their first 4 possessions.  Sadly, that sounds familiar, doesn’t it?!  Ryan Tannehill lead the team to 1 first down on 2 series and Matt Moore lead the offense to 2 three and outs.  We have a video on page 3 of this post, taken by a fan in attendance.  Be sure to check it out! As we’ve said before, it’s tough to take away a lot from the Dolphins playing against themselves.  For example, was the defensive line dominant or are there major concerns about the offensive line?  If a receiver beats a corner back, is it bad coverage or just really good receiver play? Photo Courtesy of Dolphins.com With all that said, it’s still good to see the team back at Sun Life Stadium.  A crowd of just over 22,000 attended the practice, which is a great showing Dolphins fans!  Unfortunately, the Dolphins 2 starting wide receivers did not participate in the scrimmage.  Mike Wallace did not play, but no reason was given by the coaches.  Brian Hartline suited up and took part in warm-ups.  However, fans in attendance report that he appeared to tweak his calf, or suffer from cramping.  Hartline did not participate in the scrimmage part of practice.  Hopefully, this is not a major injury, as Hartline is the Dolphins #2 receiver and the receiving corps is already depleted with Binns and Matthews being injured recently. Onto the field - Dion Jordan saw some time and picked up a would-be sack. - Ryan Tannehill was sharp and threw 3 touchdowns, 2 in the red zone portion of practice.  For the 5th straight practice, Tannehill did not throw an interception.  Tannehill finished 8 for 11 for 72 yards and 3 TDs according to the Palm Beach Post.  Keep it up 17!  (continued on page 2, CLICK HERE)
