Dolphins minicamp reports, Day 3

New, comments

The Dolphins have one practice today down in Davie, concluding their final minicamp of the spring.  They do have one more OTA day before the team breaks for a month and a half prior to training camp - which is expected to begin around August 1 (yes - that's later than usual, but the season starts later than usual).

As the various practice reports roll in, I'll keep this post updated with them.

Highlights include:

-Chad Pennington back after missing yesterday's sessions to attend his sister's wedding.
