DAVIE — The Dolphins are in their final few days of offseason practice before taking a month off leading up to training camp. By now, their retooled offense should be looking much better, and coach Adam Gase was mildly pleased with this morning’s practice.
With two practices remaining in Organized Team Activities, here are some updates from Gase:
— Left guard Josh Sitton did not practice today. Gase declined to say whether it was injury-related. “I don’t have to tell you,” he said.
— Wide receiver Isaiah Ford, a seventh-round pick last year, has looked good in offseason practices so far. “He’s been very productive this spring,” Gase said. The question is how he’ll do once he faces live competition in preseason games, which he was unable to do last year because of injury.
— Rookie running back Kalen Ballage has been picking up the offense quickly, handling everything from run plays to lining up as a receiver to blocking.
— Gase sees that Ryan Tannehill is clearly the leader of the team, reclaiming his spot. “He jumped right back in there, and guys rallied around him,” he said.
— The no-huddle work went well today. “It’s tough when it’s (hot) out there and you go so many plays in a row,” Gase said. “We’re seeing if guys can execute when they get tired.”
