Miami Dolphins injury: S Reshad Jones out for start of training camp

DAVIE–The Dolphins finalized the status of several players in question in advance of Thursday’s training camp opener, and safety Reshad Jones was a surprising name to surface.

Jones missed much of last season with a shoulder injury, but was expected to be ready for the start of camp. However, the team placed him on the Active/Non-Football Injury list this afternoon. Miami did not specify what was wrong with Jones, but that designation means the injury did not take place during team activities or at the facility.

Jones cannot practice while on Active NFI, but the team can take him off the list at any time.

Coming off a year in which he had 51 tackles and an interception in six games, Jones signed a five-year, $60 million extension that made him one of the highest-paid safeties in the league.

Miami also placed backup receiver Rashawn Scott on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list and can activate him at any time. Offensive tackle Avery Young, a former Palm Beach Gardens High School standout, is on the Active NFI list.

The Dolphins also cleared undrafted rookies De’Veon Smith and Eric Smith from the PUP list, and those two can practice Thursday.

    non football injury? sure hope its not serious, Jones is the heart and soul of our secondary. We were not the same team without Jones last season.

    also, anyone catching the Last Chance U Documentary Series on Netflix? its quite good, true stories of players on their last chance to make it to the NFL. 🙂

    RT17 is impressive. Look at the TD the Phins twitter put up today for his B-day. 55yds in the air, on the money while getting drilled. Gase wouldn’t have taken the job, imo, if he was not confident in the QB. He had other options.

    RT17 just has to find the consistency. With Gase here I believe he will. He’s finally got a coach that believes in him and doesn’t handcuff him. Call me a Tanneshill or Tannehomer, I don’t care. He’s my QB. Gase knows more about football than any of us, I’ll defer to his judgement on him.

    It’s only day 1 of TC, but I’m LOVIN’ what I’m hearing and seeing today. Hopefully Reshad and Pouncey will be good to go come game 1 of the regular season.

    Proud to be a fan of this organization. All class.

    Gase is the man. Ross is also shown and showing what a class act he is as well.

    GO PHINS

    Bobby McCain is staying outside but he seems to be done for the day.

    Thomas, not Verner, is the nickel with McCain sidelined.

  9. Tim Knight says:

    It’s been reported that McCain is fine. Gase expects him back at practice tomorrow. Sometimes guys get a hit on the knee and it hurts, not always something serious like a tear.

    Brandon Albert retires, Jags get fucked on their trade deal with Miami.

    We basically stole Julius Thomas, Albert had nothing left and didnt want to go through training camp in high heat and humidity in Jax

    Dolphins will send the seventh round pick back to JAX due to BA’s retirement
