DAVIE–The Dolphins were back on the field this morning after their first break of training camp and they were glad to get Reshad Jones back from his calf injury.

Miami coach Adam Gase said Jones “crushed” the conditioning test, so there was no hesitation getting him a full workload today.

Here are some other updates:

— Gase said the team believes this is Jay Ajayi’s first concussion. He remains out until he completes the NFL’s process for return. The Dolphins have no timetable for that.

— One interesting note from Gase: new defensive coordinator Matt Burke is taking Vance Joseph’s defense to a new level. There’s a greater understanding from the players of why the Dolphins do what they do defensively.

— Kenyan Drake, who is getting some first-team reps with Ajayi out, looked good today. He had a 15-yard touchdown run in which he outran Lawrence Timmons on the outside.

— Ryan Tannehill has been taking some gambles in the passing game over the first six practices, but Gase is cool with it. “His job is to turn that ball loose and trust those guys to be exactly where they’re supposed to be,” he said. “He has great trust with those guys.”
