Dolphins recently acquired wide receiver Mike Wallace returned to practice this week after missing close to two weeks due to a groin injury. While his availability for Friday’s preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars is still up in the air, the Dolphins can breathe a sigh of relief that their $60 million dollar man is back in action.
It’s very important that Wallace keeps developing his chemistry with second-year quarterback Ryan Tannehill.
During his first practice Wednesday, Wallace showed why he was worth all the money when he beat cornerback Nolan Carroll on a stop ‘n go route for a 40 yard touchdown pass.
Tannehill and Wallace have been widely criticized for not always being on the same page. Now that Wallace has missed the past two weeks with injury, the media scrutiny will only intensify.
Wallace says that he expects to play Friday night against the Jaguars, however, head coach Joe Philbin refused to comment on the matter during his Wednesday post-practice press conference.
