The Splash Zone 12/8/16: Mike Hull Could Start Sunday In Place Of Kiko Alonso

Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours.

If Kiko Alonso is unable to play on Sunday, Mike Hull will be stepping up to the plate. Alonso had thumb surgery on Monday but was able to join the team for practice yesterday. Hull stepped in after Alonso left Sunday's game and held his own and managed to impress a few people. I'm actually interested to see him play if Alonso is not able to.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day's round-up below.
