DAVIE — The reason Reshad Jones has been sidelined for the first five practices of Miami Dolphins training camp is a calf injury, according to coach Adam Gase.

How close is Jones to a return?

“Good question,” Gase said Monday. “I’ll know more (Tuesday). We’re have a better idea of where he is at. I’m taking this a little slow with that being a calf injury. I don’t want to bring him back too fast. It’s one of those deals in speaking with the trainers, if you have any kind of setback on that, it’s a long period of time. So the last thing I would want to do is lose him for extended period of time. Losing him here at the beginning of camp, I’m OK with that. I tell him he’s an old man now. So I just want to be smart with it.”

Jones missed the last 11 games of last season, including a playoff game, due to a shoulder injury.

But Jones has been cleared to return from the shoulder injury.

In Jones’ absence, the Dolphins have been using Nate Allen, T.J. McDonald, Maurice Smith and A.J. Hendy. Michael Thomas is also capable of playing nickel cornerback and safety.
