This is not a glamour position on the offensive side of the football, but one of importance moving forward in 2012 for the Miami Dolphins. Big bodies asked to be stout and strong as they run block, but have the agility to get outside and lead running back Reggie Bush outside on the edge! The Dolphins were very fortunate last season to avoid injury at this position, seeing the same lineup in 14 of 16 regular season games!
DE Brett Keisel/OUT/Hamstring (did not practice today)
G Trai Essex/QUESTIONABLE/Ankle (limited practice today)
FB Lousaka Polite/QUESTIONABLE/Knee (limited practice today)
LB Karlos Dansby/PROBABLE/Knee (full practice today)
NOTE: On Friday, the Dolphins placed rookie DE Jared Odrick on injured reserve, ending his 2010 season.
