The Miami Dolphins are spending this week in Southern California, practicing at the Dallas Cowboys’ training camp site in Oxnard. The team left South Florida on Friday, with players, coaches, staff, and families on the plane, in order to get away from the effects of Hurrican Irma. It might not be the only week they spend away from their normal Davie training facilities.
After this weekend’s game against the Los Angeles Chargers, the Dolphins have plans in place to move to West Virginia if the Davie complex is found to have been damaged by the Hurricane, according to a report from the Miami Herald’s Armando Salguero. The team deflated their indoor practice bubble prior to Irma’s arrival, but the status of the bubble and the facility as a whole has not yet been ascertained.
The Dolphins face the New York Jets in Week 3 in New Jersey.
Power in the area of the facilities was cut by the hurricane.
The Dolphins would move to The Greenbrier in West Virginia, according to Salguero’s report. The New Orleans Saints used the site for training camp from 2014 through 2016. The Houston Texans used the site this summer.
The decision on using Davie or The Greenbrier will be made whenever inspections of the training facilities in Florida are completed or the team is scheduled to leave Southern California on Sunday.
