The Miami Dolphins have officially kicked off their 2012 season with training camp opening today. The players all reported to the team at 8am Eastern, with physicals and conditioning tests scheduled for the rest of the day. Tomorrow the team will actually hit the field for their first practice, a practice that will be open to the public. However, the team has adjusted some of the practices, and the start times, from the previously released schedule.
The first change is that most practices will still start at 8am in the practice bubble, but the public portion of the practice will not begin until 8:40am, when the team moves outside. The majority of the practices will be held at the Dolphins Training Facility at 7500 SW 30th Street in Davie, with the August 4 practice being at Sun Life Stadium.
Below you will find the entire schedule of practices. Please note, the practice times can change. You can call the Dolphins' practice hotline at (954) 452-7004 to keep up with any updated times.
