After missing all of last week’s practice and Sunday’s game in Oakland with a hamstring injury, Brandon Marshall returned to practice today. Unless he has a setback, that should mean he will be healthy enough to go on Sunday against the Browns. It will be interesting to see how the Dolphins’ passing attack, which was clicking on all cylinders against the Raiders, fares with their alpha receiver back in the lineup.
Unfortunately, even with Marshall returning to practice, the injury bug hasn’t quite gone away just yet. Channing Crowder reportedly missed the workout with an undisclosed injury. Dolphin fans shouldn’t be too worried about Crowder’s availability Sunday, as Tim Dobbins proved to be more than capable of filling in, in relief duty for Karlos Dansby against the Raiders. But you have to wonder if this is indeed a serious injury with the way the Dolphins added extra depth at inside linebacker today.
According to reports, the Dolphins have signed former West Virginia Mountaineer Mortty Ivey and have resigned J.D. Folsom to the practice squad. The Dolphins also cut LB Micah Johnson from the practice squad to clear up some room for Ivey and Folsom.
