Miami morning take: Will Ellerbe play?

October, 16, 2013
Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Wednesday from around the web:
  • Omar Kelly of the Sun Sentinel reports that the Dolphins are preparing to play without starting linebacker Dannell Ellerbe.
Morning take: Ellerbe thinks he can play, but he’s missed two practices already with a shoulder injury. Backup Jason Trusnik is working with the first team in the event Ellerbe cannot play.
  • Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports the Dolphins could be looking to add another offensive lineman.
Morning take: The Dolphins have an open roster spot after releasing defensive lineman Marvin Austin on Tuesday. Adding an offensive tackle or guard makes sense.
  • Hal Habib of the Palm Beach Post writes that tight end Charles Clay’s production does not surprise Dolphins coaches.
Morning take: Many expected a major drop-off after the season-ending injury to tight end Dustin Keller. But Clay has done a good job of getting open and finishing plays.
Morning take: The Dolphins are the last AFC East team to play a division game. It is important for Miami to begin divisional play on the right foot.
