DAVIE–Adam Gase held a relatively light practice this afternoon because of the short week. The Dolphins leave for New York on Friday and will visit the Jets on Saturday night.

Here are Gase’s post-practice updates:

— Matt Moore looked good in his first practice as the starter. Gase said it’s a luxury to have a veteran in that position.

— Gase said T.J. Yates is the No. 2 quarterback this week, nixing what Clyde Christensen said about the team still deciding between Yates and Doughty.

— Miami remains hopeful on Ryan Tannehill coming back this season, but they have no new medical information on him since Monday.

— The Dolphins couldn’t activate Dion Jordan because of health. His knee still isn’t right. Because of that, they don’t have any kind of handle on whether they’d like him back in 2017. Miami has a team option for that season.

— It looks promising for cornerback Xavien Howard (knee) to play this week.

— While the Dolphins are working Kraig Urbik at center, they expect Anthony Steen to start. Gase did not describe it as an open competition.
