The Miami Dolphins and Jacksonville Jaguars did not finish their matchup due to the injury Daewood Davis sustained during the game. Davis took a hit when trying to make a catch and stayed on the ground till the cart came out. The Dolphins and Jaguars agreed to end the game right then and there. Mike McDaniel met with media after the game and provided some good news when he announced Davis was conscious and able to move his extremities.

This was the last preseason game for players to make an impression on the coaching staff. Running back Chris Brooks has made a great impression all preseason long, but unfortunately that room is pretty crowded right now. Brooks should be a prime practice squad candidate provided no other team snatches him up.

The defense however did not make a good impression at all last night and you can bet Vic Fangio will not be happy with the performance. Rookie cornerback Cam Smith gave up a 74-yard touchdown while the defensive line was constantly pushed around all game. Christian Wilkins and Zach Sieler did not play, but still, it was a very poor performance.

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