Lamar Miller 'stronger than he's ever been'
by Larry Hartstein |

Dolphins coach Joe Philbin praised running back Lamar Miller's performance after the team's first padded practice. Miller added five pounds of muscle this offseason with the hope of breaking more tackles and doing better in pass protection.

"I want to say he weighed in at 221 (pounds) or something like that and he looks good, he looks stronger than he’s ever been," Philbin said. "I don’t think he’s sacrificed any speed whatsoever."

With Knowshon Moreno (knee) on the PUP list, Miller has a chance to put a grip on the starting tailback job.

Brandon Gibson does not finish practice
by Larry Hartstein |

Dolphins receiver Brandon Gibson, who's coming back from a torn patellar tendon, did not complete the team's first padded practice. He watched the end of practice with ice on his left knee, reports The Sun Sentinel.

It was unclear if Gibson reinjured his knee or if he was being held out as a precaution, according to the Palm Beach Post.

Brandon Gibson lines up as first-team slot receiver
by Marty Gitlin |

Speculation that Brandon Gibson would lose his job as Dolphins slot receiver to Rishard Matthews or Jarvis Landry after suffering a petellar tear last season appears unfounded after the former lined up with the first team Saturday in practice, per the Palm Beach Post.

Gibson, who made an impressive catch over the middle from quarterback Ryan Tannehill, was impressive before going down a year ago. He caught 29 passes for 322 yards in his first six games and snagged three touchdowns in his last two.

It appears Landry and Matthews will battle for second-team duties, at least during camp.

Dolphins place Mike Pouncey, Knowshon Moreno on PUP list
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Dolphins opened training camp Friday by placing center Mike Pouncey and running back Knowshon Moreno on the physically unable to perform list, reports ESPN.

Pouncey had major hip surgery this summer and reportedly could miss as much as eight weeks of the regular season. Moreno had a cleanup procedure on his knee and should return before the end of the preseason.

Both players are expected to eventually be key members of Miami's offense. Pouncey is arguably the Dolphins’ best offensive player. Moreno, who started last year for the Broncos, signed a one-year contract to compete with incumbent starting tailback Lamar Miller.

'Won't be too long' until Knowshon Moreno returns for Miami
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said he's not worried about Knowshon Moreno coming back in bad shape. The team opens training camp on Thursday and will begin practicing soon thereafter. Moreno had offseason knee surgery after reportedly showing up to camp out of shape. 

"Not full throttle 100 percent reps yet but won't be too long," Philbin said of Moreno via the Miami Herald.
