Earlier this week, the Miami Dolphins had an unhappy wide receiver on their hands. Mike Wallace was unhappy that he was not targeted once in the first half of the Dolphins 23-10 win over the Browns. He was targeted a few times in the second half of the game, but only managed to catch one ball for 15 yards. His frustration carried over into the post game when he was so visibly upset that Jeff Ireland had to console him and walk him to the locker room.

Well, if you were worrying about Wallace’s attitude carrying over from Sunday, it doesn’t appear that you need to worry too much. According to the Miami Herald, Ryan Tannehill said that Mike Wallace is 100% back to normal. Here’s what Tannehill had to say:
“Yes, Mike was obviously in a tough spot at the end of that game but, everything is 100 percent normal in the locker room,” Tannehill said. ” He’s great, practicing hard every day, joking around. He’s his same old self, so we are looking forward to getting back on the field this week.”
Tannehill also said that he doesn’t feel the need to force the ball to Wallace, despite his aggravation in week 1. He said:
“I’m going to play the quarterback position the way the coaches install the plays,” Tannehill said. “I’m going to go through the reads just like they install it. We’re going to try and get him the ball when he’s in the play, but we’re not going to force him the ball.”
