DAVIE–Last week’s terror attack in London caught the world’s attention, and it resonated with the Miami Dolphins in part because they’re playing a game at Wembley Stadium this fall.

The NFL is staging four games in London this season, and Miami will make its fifth appearance there when it faces the Saints on Oct. 1. The team is likely to be there Thursday through Sunday, and coach Adam Gase said he’s still considering precautions.

“When you hear about these things, the first thing you think of is you can’t really put it together in your mind of why things like that happen,” he said. “I think with the NFL security (and) our security team, you can feel good about (them doing) everything they possibly can do to make sure that we’re safe–travel, game day, the time we’re there, leaving, all those things.

“That’s really what you rely on. You rely on those guys doing what they do best, and they do a great job. We have to focus on our job, and they have to focus on their job. That’s really all I can do. That’s all our players can do. They’ve got to focus on what they need to do.”

When asked specifically if he would restrict his players from crowded attractions like London Bridge, where the recent attack took place, Gase said he hadn’t decided.

This was the third attack in England this year. A suicide bomber killed 22 people at a concert in Manchester on May 22 and five were killed in Westminster in March.
