A CowPhin is a Dolphins player who once played for the Cowboys

This week, the Dolphins signed OT Marc Colombo, LB Kevin Burnett, and QB Matt Moore, among others. Those three players have something in common other than their current places on the Dolphins’ roster, though: they’re all CowPhins.

What is a CowPhin, you ask? Well, quite simply, a CowPhin is a player who was once on the Cowboys and is now on the Dolphins.

On this day before Thanksgiving, Dolphins coach Tony Sparano spent a few minutes with the media as the team continued their preparation for Sunday’s game at Oakland. Beginning with injury news, Sparano said that QB Chad Henne was limited in practice today, but participated a good amount. Same goes for center Joe Berger. On the other hand, receiver Brandon Marshall was absent with the hamstring and Sparano said that “he’s doing well” but that the whole thing is going slower than anyone wants it to.
