DAVIE—The Dolphins ran their first practice with Jay Cutler at quarterback this morning, and it’s a bit of a reset for the team.

Matt Moore continued to run the first-team offense and is the likely starter for Thursday’s preseason game against Atlanta (Cutler was already ruled out for that), but he didn’t have the full lineup with him. Miami was missing Mike Pouncey, Laremy Tunsil, Ted Larsen and Jay Ajayi.

Here are coach Adam Gase’s post-practice updates:

— He thought Cutler looked the same as he did when they were together in 2015. “He’s good,” Gase said.

— Tunsil has been gone since Friday’s practice, but Gase said he’s fine. His unspecified absence is not a concern for the team.

— There’s no medical update on Ryan Tannehill as far as whether he’ll undergo ACL surgery.

— The players moved on quickly from Tannehill’s injury. Gase said the energy was back the next day and has been high ever since.
