Tyreek Hill stands out again on day 8 of Dolphins’ training camp. Notes and Highlights


Day 8 of Dolphins training camp featured more excellence from Tyreek Hill, the defensive line which had another day’s attack on the offensive line and sharp throws from Teddy Briddgewater.

Friday highlights:


Tyrek Hill.:

This is a recording. After sitting still on Wednesday as part of the veteran maintenance program, he caught a 20-yarder over center early in practice, then caught a short pass from Tua Tagovailoa in the back of the end zone and another short pass from Skylar Thomas in front. a touchdown. Then he caught a pass from 25 meters from Tagovailoa.

▪ Teddy Bridewater.

The backup quarterback had several sharp throws for some distance.

▪ Kicker Jason Sanders:

He’s been very, very accurate on field goals throughout the camp. On Friday, he hit 31, 35, 38, 43, 48 and 51 yards without a miss.

▪ The Defense Line:

Emmanuel Ogbah, Christian Wilkins and Zach Sieler had good days against the run, and Nebraska rookie Ben Stille has had some good moments. Ogbah and Wilkins each had pockets.


▪ Bridgewater delivered a rocket to Hill across the middle for a 20-yard gain, beating Tino Ellis

▪ Bridgewater showed a good touch on a 25-yard pass to Braylon Sanders.

▪ Yet another Bridgewater game! On this he scrambled for six seconds, avoiding a pass rush, then found Hunter Long over the center for a long win.


▪ Understanding Center Connor Williams continues to be work progress. No one has sailed over a quarterback’s head or rolled to the ground, but he had two very high snaps on Friday. The second resulted in a possible looting of Noah Igbonighene. The first disrupted a running game a bit.

Dolphin coaches this week praised Williams’ work in transitioning from left hat (on the Cowboys) to center on the Dolphins.

▪ Ogbah passed by Austin Jackson – who has had a solid camp – for a sack. A Jevon Holland blitz forced a quick throw – and incomplete pass – from Tagovailoa to Mike Gesicki.

▪ Rookie quarterback Skyler Thompson knocked over Braylon Sanders in the end zone and was off on another pitch. But he gathered to deliver a 20-yard to Cedrick Wilson Jr. in the middle of the field.

▪ ZaQuandre White, the South Carolina rookie walking back, keeps blinking. He took a carrying bag to the perimeter for a big game. He is more likely for the practice squad than the 53, but he has a great chance to beat Myles Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed for the No. 4 job.

▪ Safety Eric Rowe put out a Salvon Ahmed carry for a minimal win, and Jaelan Phillips stood up to Edmonds for another run. Ogbah held Raheem Mostert to a short win on another point, and Cameron Goode stood up to Gerrid Doaks without a win.

But there were also a handful of hefty gains on hasty attempts by Chase Edmonds and a long run by Mostert as he hit the hole very quickly.

▪ The Dolphins have tried to get Preston Williams more involved, but without much luck. On the third down of a red zone practice, Bridgewater threw a low pass to him that was incomplete.

▪ Recipient Mohamad Sanu caught a nice pass from Tagovailoa during recuperation/defensive practice and celebrated with a group of young children attending training, patiently waiting for them to return the football to him.

▪ Linebacker Andrew Van Ginkel wore the orange practice jersey that was awarded to the best player during the previous practice. Wednesday he had two bags.

▪ Porter Gustin, the former Browns linebacker, had a bag of Tagovailoa. He’s had quite a fight.

▪ The Dolphins have been careful with Terron Armstead after minor knee surgery out of season. The Pro Bowl left tackle hasn’t played a ton of 11 on 11 snaps this camp yet, but when he does — as he did on Friday — you can tell the difference in the run play and pass protection on his side. Armstead has never played a full season but needs to stay healthy.


▪ Cornerback Byron Jones (off-season surgery in the Achilles knee area), center Michael Deiter (foot) and fullback John Lovett (undisclosed) are out.

▪ Fullback Alec Ingold, who came back from last year’s ACL injury in week 10, was in a red non-contact jersey.

▪ Safety features Clayton Fejedelem (injury) and Elijah Campbell (illness) were not reported during training.

▪ Tyreek Hill, Chase Edmonds and Terron Armstead were back in training on Wednesday after a maintenance rest day. Raheem Mostert, who worked his way back from week 1 knee surgery last season, got some 11 out of 11 jobs and is no longer in a red non-contact jersey.
