Injured Dolphins offensive players making progress

Kenny Stills


Monday brought good news for three members of the Dolphins offense coming back from injuries.

Wide receiver Kenny Stills practiced for the first time since injuring his calf a little more than two weeks ago and looked like he was back at speed when he caught a deep ball from quarterback Ryan Tannehill during a 7-on-7 drill.

“It’s nice to have him back,” Tannehill said, via the Associated Press. “He’s definitely a big-play receiver. Obviously his speed is tremendous, and his route-running ability — the smoothness he has coming in and out of breaks is probably the smoothest that I’ve seen. So when you add that to what we have from the other guys, it really opens up another connection for us.”

Stills isn’t the only new Dolphins wideout who has missed time this summer. First-round pick DeVante Parker started running as he makes his way back from foot surgery and there’s a chance he’ll see time in a preseason game if his progress continues at a good pace.

Left tackle Branden Albert rounds out the group making progress. He took 11-on-11 snaps for the first time this summer on Monday and coach Joe Philbin said Albert will continue to get more work as long as he feels well physically.
