The Miami Dolphins continued to add to their practice squad on Thursday. They signed three recent players they let go in Jason Strowbridge, Tino Ellis, and Cameron Tom to the practice squad. They also signed undrafted rookie offensive linemen Kon Smith who was cut by Atlanta and former Florida Gators WR Brandon Powell. Powell went undrafted in 2018 and has been in the NFL with the Lions and Falcons.

Rookie offensive tackle Liam Eichenberg and tight end Adam Shaheen missed practice on Thursday due to lower-body injuries. Their status for the week 1 game vs New England is in doubt.

Rookie safety Jevon Holland switched his jersey number from 22 to 8 and rookie cornerback/safety Trill Williams switched his number from 51 to 6. The number 6 is the number Williams wore at Syracuse. Podcast Network

DolphinsTalk Quote of the Day

Miami Dolphins Tight End Mike Gesicki had this to say about his teammate Albert Wilson.

“You can tell he’s invested in himself and working extremely hard for this opportunity. You saw in training camp, the speed and ability to make plays downfield and catch and run, similar to how he was in 2018 when you saw that burst.”

DolphinsTalk Miami Dolphins Fantasy Nugget

With a lot of Fantasy Football Drafts taking place over the course of the next few days, Dolphins fans, of course, are always interested in which Miami Dolphins players are guys they should be targeting or avoiding this season. While Fantasy Football is an inexact science and various fantasy "experts" have a wide range of opinions, I want to focus today on Miami Dolphins rookie WR Jaylen Waddle to see what is expected of him this year. Kyle Yates from FantasyPros had this to say about Waddle from a fantasy football perspective this upcoming season.

"Waddle has the draft capital to his name, he has the speed and explosiveness to make an impact for fantasy, and he has familiarity already with his QB in Miami. We've seen rookie WRs step into the NFL and produce right away and Waddle could be the next one in line. With Fuller and Parker on the outside, Waddle will be able to settle into the slot and take short passes from Tua and create with his agility after the catch. He should see plenty of work from week one and I would not be surprised if he's in the conversation for Offensive Rookie of the Year when it's all said and done. I'm drafting him everywhere I can this season."
