Butler, who suffered the right lower leg injury during a muggy and rain-soaked day on the Dolphins practice field in Davie, was attended to by a trainer before heading inside.Nicks, bruises, and minor injuries are inevitable when it comes to offseason practices. Players are taking the practice field and doing drills in “real world” football conditions with fellow teammates for the first time in months, and football, as we all know, is an inherently dangerous sport in general, whether pads are being worn or not. As of now, the severity of Butler’s injury has not been reported, but that is a more positive sign than a negative one. If Butler’s injury is going to put his availability for this season in jeopardy, it’s likely that we’d know relatively quickly. Hopefully Christian Wilkins white jersey , the veteran wideout will be ready for training camp in late July with the hopes of cementing his spot on the 53-man roster.Butler, 29, joined the Dolphins during the middle of last season after several seasons with the Dallas Cowboys and Oakland Raiders. He played in six games for Miami, making one start and caught six passes for 60 yards and one touchdown. Currently, he’s contending with the likes of Isaiah Ford, Preston Williams, Reece Horn, and Trenton Irwin for a shot at surviving the Dolphins final roster cuts. DeVante Parker, Albert Wilson, Kenny Stills, and Jakeem Grant are virtual locks to make the roster, and the team is expected to keep five or six wideouts by the time Week 1 of the regular season rolls around. Miami Dolphins rookie coach Brian Flores wiped sweat from his forehead as he stepped up to a cluster of media microphones to kick off training camp.Nervous? Nah.“Let me catch my breath,” he said. “I just got a workout done.”Flores said his camp routine will include daily CrossFit training Christian Wilkins Jersey Womens , which means pullups, pushups and squats — as if he doesn’t have enough to do trying to orchestrate a Dolphins turnaround.Their multiyear rebuilding project began a new phase Thursday when 86 players took the field in sweltering sunshine for practice.“A lot of excitement,” Flores said. “We’re raring to go.”Coming off a 7-9 season, the Dolphins are a 500-1 bet to win the Super Bowl, which makes them the NFL’s longest long shot. They’re more likely to contend for worst in the league, but according to Flores, there will be no maneuvering for the No. 1 draft pick and a shot at a franchise quarterback.“We’re going to have a tough, smart, disciplined team that works hard and is not going to beat themselves,” he said. “We’re going to fight to win every week.”Plenty of players will fight for starting jobs in the next few weeks, most notably at quarterback, where for the first time since 2011 camp began without Ryan Tannehill. He’s now a backup for the Tennessee Titans, and newcomers Ryan Fitzpatrick and Josh Rosen are competing to replace him.Fitzpatrick took most of the snaps with the first team Thursday Christian Wilkins Jersey Cheap , as he did in offseason workouts.More Miami Dolphins newsDolphins DB Minkah Fitzpatrick will play vs. Patriots despite trade requestDolphins will try to regroup for Patriots after drubbing at the hands of RavensDolphins can’t contain Lamar Jackson, lose big at homeDolphins versatile offensive lineman Jesse Davis signs extension through 2022Dolphins trade Laremy Tunsil, Kenny Stills to Texans for draft picks“I’m just trying to be the best version of me that I can be,” Fitzpatrick said.Flores said the depth chart will be fluid at all positions, and to underscore the message that the roster’s far from set, the Dolphins hosted former Miami Hurricanes receiver Allen Hurns on a free agent visit. Hurns suffered a gruesome broken ankle in the playoffs last season with Dallas, and Flores said the Dolphins will evaluate his health before deciding whether to make a contract offer.Receiver Albert Wilson, who missed the final nine games last season with a hip injury, was limited as he eased back into the practice regimen.“I’m definitely getting stronger, and I feel like I’m getting faster,” Wilson said. “I’m feeling pretty good.”Safety T.J. McDonald, tight end Dwayne Allen, linebacker Mike Hull and cornerback Cordrea Tankersley began camp on the active physically unable to perform list.Flores roamed from one group to another during drills. The former linebacker was the defensive play caller last year for the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots Miami Dolphins Jerseys 2019 , but said his attention on the field will be evenly divided between units.“I’ve got my eyes on all parts of the team, all parts of the organization,” he said. “If someone needs a good yelling at, I’ll get where that needs to be.“If someone needs a pat on the back, I’ll do that as well. You won’t see too many of those.”The real test must wait until the Dolphins start to lose, but so far Flores’ players are praising his approach.“He’s got a great demeanor,” said Fitzpatrick, a 15-year veteran. “He’s very genuine when he talks. With the message he’s trying to get across you know it’s coming from a good place.“We haven’t played a game yet, but he has the attention, command and respect of the team right now. And that’s a hard thing to do so early as a coach.”Flores said the goal is to improve every day. That goes for the coach too.“I’ll try to cut the sweat down a little bit tomorrow,” he said with a chuckle as he gave his glistening forehead another swipe. “It’s my first day, all right?”
