The Splash Zone 6/5/21: Notes From Friday’s OTA Practice

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.

NFL: Miami Dolphins OTA Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

The Dolphins held their second of three voluntary offseason practices that were open to the media yesterday. Really not much to discuss as we just got some updates on some players and we learned that not all of the roster was present. Preston Williams was at practice but was working on the side still rehabbing from his foot surgery. After practice, Brian Flores came to the defense of his quarterback after Tua Tagovailoa stated last week that he didn’t know the playbook that well last season.

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

Miami Dolphins OTA's are open to reporters on Friday. Tua is there.
What will an open OTA session at Miami Dolphins camp deliver on Friday? We can't wait to see Tua's improved mechanics, strength and confidence in action.
