Dolphins To Bench CB Sean Smith In Opener For Jason Allen

More surprises have come from the releases on Saturday by the Fins, and now there’s a shakeup in the teams secondary:

There’s another surprise coming in the Dolphins secondary. By now, you know that Will Allen has been placed on injured reserve, even though he was targeting a return for the Sept. 26 game against the Jets, and maybe even Sept. 19 against the Vikings if the team deemed that necessary. But here’s something else on the horizon: Sean Smith, who started all 16 games at cornerback as a Dolphins rookie, is not in line to start the season opener. According to two sources, fifth-year man Jason Allen has been penciled in as the starting cornerback in place of Smith, and Smith was made aware of that decision over the weekend. Vontae Davis will start at the other perimeter cornerback, and Benny Sapp will serve as the nickel back, with Nolan Carroll also available.
