The fourth (out of five) installment of HBO’s “Hard Knocks” premiered tonight as we continued our incredibly inside and intimate look at the Miami Dolphins organization. Read More
After a Friday night dropped pass and a Saturday night arrest, Johnson’s contract was terminated by the team on Sunday and the show was there to capture much of what was a very intense weekend in South Florida.
Things, began, though, on an even more serious note, as the show opened with the death of Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid’s son.
This morning, after the previous evening’s Hard Knocks premiere, the Dolphins held a walk-through in the bubble.
The team will return to the practice field later this evening, though, for a 6:25 p.m. practice open to the public–the only open night practice of training camp.

Two days after the team’s first scrimmage of training camp 2012, coach Joe Philbin released his first depth chart of the season.
While there are obviously many things that will change between now and Week 1 at Houston, this piece of paper certainly gives us a decent idea of where the coaching staff’s heads are at.
Starting where most fans are most interested, David Garrard is listed as the starting quarterback.
With the defense applying some additional pressure, there was a new wrinkle during team drills: Ryan Tannehill took his first snaps with the first-team offense.
If it is truly to be a three-way competition, it’s been a matter of when not if Tannehill would run with the 1′s, and Thursday turned out to be the day.

A day after Matt Moore took the majority of the reps with the first-team offense, David Garrard moved into that role. Of course, the QB situation isn’t the only thing to keep an eye on.

If you’re having a conversation with someone about the Dolphins offense, there’s a pretty good chance you’re discussing the quarterbacks. And if not the quarterbacks, then the wide receivers. And if not the wide receivers, then probably the running backs.
And while all of the QBs, WRs and RBs are going to be critical to the team’s success on offense this year, there’s another group that could very well make major contributions: the tight ends.
