Miami Dolphins Strategy and Personnel 2008-09-27


Miami Dolphins Strategy and Personnel 2008-09-27
The Dolphins will practice Monday, Wednesday-Friday this week and take the weekend off. Coach Tony Sparano said they will work on fundamentals and especially on special teams. They gave up 237 return yards to Patriots returner Ellis Hobbs Sunday. QB Chad Pennington said the bye week will give him more time to establish timing with his receivers.


The release of rookie running back Jalen Parmele was a surprise given all the praise he had received during the preseason. Parmele, a sixth-round pick out of Akron, tied for the team lead with 123 yards on 21 carries with one touchdown, including an 80-yard TD run against the Chiefs. He was re-signed to the practice squad Thursday.

Sparano explained that the packed backfield of Ricky Williams, Ronnie Brown and Patrick Cobbs -- who is a special teams stalwart -- was too deep to keep Parmele on the active roster just to wait for injuries to occur.

Meanwhile, Sparano said that he may continue the 'Wildcat' formation that led to four touchdowns Sunday against the Patriots with Ronnie Brown taking the shotgun snap and then either running it, faking or handing it to Ricky Williams on a reverse, or throwing it or could just, "put it to bed." But either way, he's given opposing defensive coordinators plenty to think about in the upcoming weeks. Both receivers Ted Ginn Jr. and Davone Bess played quarterback in high school and would love to be part of the Wildcat package. Ginn was used in the 'Shot-Ginn' package at Ohio State and even threw a 38-yard touchdown pass. Bess said he practiced passing at Hawaii but didn't get his number called in a game.

PLAYER NOTES

--A day after cutting rookie RB Jalen Parmele, the Dolphins re-signed him to the practice squad. They waived CB Will Billingsley to make room for Parmele.

--TE Drew Atchison was cut from the practice squad and was replaced by 6-4, 310-pound G Matt McChesney, who has been on the Jets practice squad the last two years.

--TE Joey Haynos was signed off the Packers practice squad and onto the 53-man roster. Haynos, a 6-8, 270-pounder out of Maryland, caught 68 passes for 687 yards and four touchdowns for the Terps.

--ILB Reggie Torbor didn't practice Wednesday while nursing a strained hamstring sustained in Sunday's win over the Patriots.

--CB Michael Lehan, who strained a hamstring Sunday, returned to practice Wednesday.
