DAVIE–Adam Gase raised the intensity of the Dolphins‘ practices this week coming off a 20-0 embarrassment against the Saints and he had all reasonably healthy players on the field Wednesday. It got heated enough that center Mike Pouncey said a few fights sprung up.

That’s the kind of atmosphere Gase likes, and he’s hoping that mentality carries into Sunday’s game against the Titans. Here’s the latest from him as Miami gets ready to host Tennessee:

–The Dolphins weren’t considering having cornerback Xavien Howard practice Wednesday, so there’s no real update on the status of his shoulder injury.

–Gase has done extensive work trying to isolate the Dolphins’ main third-down problems and says it continues to be a wide range of errors.

–Jakeem Grant got some snaps at receiver early in Sunday’s game against New Orleans, but Gase said it got to a point where he needed to keep Jarvis Landry, Kenny Stills and DeVante Parker on the field because of their thorough grasp of the offense.

–Offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen said offensive guard Ted Larsen is getting closer to being ready to play, but Gase gave no word on how he’s progressing from a torn biceps beyond saying he’s not playing Sunday.
