CARLSBAD, Calif.–The Dolphins have wrapped up their first practice of the week in advance of Sunday’s game at Los Angeles, and they were missing a few key pieces in this afternoon’s session.
Here are coach Adam Gase’s thoughts after practice:
–LT Branden Albert is out this week, but Gase has no official timetable for his wrist injury. At this point, the team thinks he will be back this season.
–The Dolphins have not set their starting offensive line. Left tackle Laremy Tunsil will start for Albert, but left guard is to be determined.
–Gase thinks the Los Angeles Rams have arguably the best defensive front the Dolphins will have faced.
–DE Mario Williams (ankle) is day-to-day. He did not practice today.
–DE Jason Jones (general soreness) and LB Jelani Jenkins (wrist) also did not practice. Both are day-to-day.
–An update on CB Xavien Howard: He’s not running full speed yet. The Dolphins are being highly cautious because, “he’s a guy we think will be around here for a long time.” They will not rush him back.
