By on August 3, 2014 at 4:32 pm

08314-WeekinreviewWe’re getting further and further into Dolphins training camp as the team has now gone through seven practices and one scrimmage. It’s approaching the dog days of camp with the players fighting to get through every practice to eventually start playing against someone in a different colored jersey in a preseason game. With the practices wearing on the players, the team changed camp up a bit with a rousing inter-squad scrimmage at Sun Life Stadium this past Saturday in preparation for the first preseason game this Friday against the Atlanta Falcons.

For more on the past week at Dolphins Training Camp, let’s take a look back and recap the week that was for the Dolphins from July 28th through August 2nd:
