DAVIE — The first Miami Dolphins organized team activity practice open to media is today.

Quarterback Ryan Tannehill, linebacker Raekwon McMillan and cornerback Tony Lippett are among the players who are on the field, returning from injury.

Every player on the Dolphins roster is in attendance. Here is what we’re noticing:

• Ryan Tannehill is practicing without a knee brace. Tannehill hit Danny Amendola on the first pass the media saw. Then he hits Amendola a few more times at the start of practice.

• Kenny Stills took the first individual wide receiver rep. He is the leader of that group.

• Bryce Petty and David Fales are playing catch.

• Amendola got very angry with himself after a mistake. He practices full-speed.

• Lippett and McMillan are participating in individual drills and team drills.

• Former Dolphins OC Clyde Christensen is still out here, throwing to receivers.

• Isaiah Ford,  now wearing #84, is moving really well in his return from injury.

• Just noticed Akeem Spence is 6-foot-1. He is taller than me, but five inches shorter than Jordan Phillips.

• Ryan Tannehill hit A.J. Derby over the middle on a nice completion.

• Jamiyus Pittman, undrafted rookie defensive lineman, batted down a pass at the line.

• Osweiler threw a beautiful sideline pass to Isaiah Ford.

• Tannehill slides in the pocket to avoid pressure, and throws a strike to Kenyan Drake.

• Tannehill pulled rookie tight end Mike Gesicki aside to help him understand something.

• Kalen Ballage is a big man and he glides when he runs.

• All the quarterbacks are getting a fair share of work – Tannehill, Osweiler, Fales and Petty.

• Bobby McCain nearly intercepted Tannehill on a pass near the sideline.

• Jakeem Grant caught a bomb from David Fales.
