The Dolphins’ starting offense looked good in their preseason debut as Ryan Tannehill completed all six passes he threw against the Falcons.
That would have been encouraging under any circumstances, but it was especially nice to see since the Dolphins were playing without Mike Wallace, Brian Hartline and Charles Clay. All three are expected to be big contributors this season and two of them should be making their preseason debuts this weekend.
Wallace said that he’s “definitely” playing Saturday after practicing for several days after his return from a hamstring injury. Wallace and Tannehill should benefit from the work together and Wallace said he feels he needs some preseason run to get his endurance up to where it needs to be to play a part in offensive coordinator Bill Lazor’s “rapid fire” scheme.
Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports that Hartline is expected to play as well. Clay is going to miss a bit more time with his knee injury, but the Dolphins are slowly putting together the pieces for an offense that needs to be more effective this year.
