Early report from first Dolphins minicamp practice
*The starting offensive line for this practice was LT Jake Long, LG Shawn Murphy, C Mike Byrne, RG Donald Thomas, RT Dan Gore.
*Chad Henne, as expected, took the first team snaps at QB while workout player Willie Copeland was second. Henne had an OK day. Copeland, predictably, struggled skipping a couple of passes and overthrowing three or four.
*Jayson Foster, playing exclusively at receiver, was impressive. He has great acceleration and catches the ball cleanly which is impressive because he played QB at Georgia Southern last year.
*Phillip Merling worked throughout the practice and said he felt "no pain," despite his hernia surgery a little while back.
*Partial owner Stephen Ross watched practice from the sideline. Wayne Huizenga was not present.
*Bill Parcells watched throughout. The only player I saw him talking to was Foster, which is great for Foster because Parcells obviously thinks enough of him to even know he exists.
*Foster was also used returning punts.
*Khristopher Kasparek and Davone Bess each dropped at least one easy pass.
