DAVIE–It’s a big week for the Dolphins as they try to push back above .500 on Monday at Carolina, and they get T.J. McDonald and Ted Larsen back.

Larsen will have his first live, full-contact practice today, and this is McDonald’s first practice since being reinstated from suspension.

Here are some notes from coach Adam Gase’s pre-practice briefing:

— The team is still seeking clarity on right tackle Ja’Wuan James’ hamstring injury. He won’t practice today, and there remains concern that it could be a long-term injury.

— Gase said James has played three games this year in which he was markedly better than last year.

— Gase is certain Reshad Jones and McDonald will play well together in coverage, even though both are known firstly as big hitters who play up in the box.

— If Larsen plays this week, it will be at left guard. However, Gase said they’re still working on the best combination of five starters.

— Mike Pouncey has been the team’s best offensive lineman this year. He’s the only one Gase can say flatly has played well every single week.
