One of the biggest talking points coming into the 2014 season was the duo of Ryan Tannehill and Mike Wallace, and how they would respond after encountering some bumps during the first season between the two. The results of their offseason work has been very encouraging. Through two games, Wallace has been Tannehill’s favorite receiver, being targeted 19 times, catching 12 balls for 137 yards and two touchdowns.

In an exclusive 1-on-1 interview with Greg Likens of The Finsiders, Tannehill elaborated on his relationship with Wallace, and how his confidence is rising fast.

“He’s made some big plays for us,” said Tannehill. “Not only the two touchdown catches but a whole lot of other catches as well. I think that was kind of the highlight (Wallace’s one handed TD) last weekend.…

Brent Grimes has faced a variety of different receivers in his eight seasons in the NFL. Coming to Sun Life Stadium is the physical and strong Dwayne Bowe, and Grimes is confident that he is up to the task.

In an interview with The Finsiders, Grimes talked about how he plans to deal with former Pro Bowler and Kansas City’s number one receiver.

“I’ll just play my technique,” said Grimes. “Receivers are going to change, situations are going to change, but you just have to play your game. I do what I do, and I stay in the game. I don’t try to change too much. Obviously with a bigger guy, he’s going to try to get physical with you, give you some bumps and things like that to get his space.…

After Knowshon Moreno‘s injury, it was expected that the Dolphins would turn  to undrafted rookie running backs Orleans Darkwa and Damien Williams to help fill in behind Lamar Miller. According to recent reports, the team will also add another player to help fill that void, one who is incredibly familiar with the Dolphins.

Via  Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, the Dolphins have decided to bring back former Dolphins running back Daniel Thomas to help fill in during Moreno’s absence.

The Dolphins and Daniel Thomas have agreed on a contract for the rest of the season, agent Tony Fleming tells me.

Knowshon Moreno helped carry the Miami Dolphins to victory in Week 1 against the New England Patriots, racking up 134 yard rushing and a touchdown. Unfortunately he never got the chance to replicate that performance against the Bills as he injured his elbow on his first carry and left the game never to return.

According to ProFootballTalk, Moreno will miss at least four weeks with a dislocation of his left elbow.
