Miami Dolphins Notes 09/21/2023
It is Thursday which means Week 3 of the NFL season is upon us. Here are some Miami Dolphins notes as the teams prepares for their first home game of the season.
Notes on the Dolphins
CB Xavien Howard made headlines for some of the wrong reasons this week. I’m sure you heard of those rumors, I will not touch on them here since I have no way to confirm or dispel the validity of that information. But, not practicing yesterday was just for “veteran’s rest”. Howard returned to the practice field today.
According to Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post, rookie CB Cam Smith has been getting more reps in today’s session than previous practices.
WR Jaylen Waddle remains in concussion protocol so it appears his status for Sunday is doubt. WR Tyreek Hill said the team will take the “next man up” approach if Waddle is unable to play.
Vic Fangio Speaks
In light of CB Eli Apple having some issues in coverage against the New England Patriots, DC Vic Fangio advised that all options are on the table when it comes to putting the best players on the field. It will come down to which player is performing in practice and games when given the chance.
LB Andrew Van Ginkel had increased snaps on the edge on Sunday night as a result of LB Jaelan Phillips missing the game with a back injury. It is appears Phillips is on pace to return this week against the Denver Broncos. Fangio said that Van Ginkel will gets snaps inside and outside moving forward.
