Game Day Open Thread: Dolphins vs. Cowboys

Miami Dolphins football is only eight hours away from its much-anticipated return. A new-look roster transformed by nearly $250 million spent on new contracts and an aggressive draft-day approach won’t quite be on display tonight, though.

Several key players are likely to be held out, including Mike Wallace (groin), Brian Hartline (calf), Randy Starks (right leg), Jared Odrick (groin) and Oliver Vernon (groin). And the starters typically play sparingly during the Hall of Fame Game, anyway.

But at the end of the day, it’s still football and it’s still the Dolphins.

Make this thread your one stop for all Dolphins talk throughout the day and during tonight’s game. I want to make these discussions a tradition here at Dolphins Gab every game day, so let’s try to get this first one off to a great start.

I’ll be here and on our twitter page @DolphinsGab throughout the day and tonight to talk about the game. So let’s have some fun with some friendly Dolphins discussion!

    Sucks so many guys are hurt though. Any of the injuries serious????

    • Cody Strahm says:

      We don’t know for sure. Dolphins haven’t shed much light into any of their injuries. Indications are that Mike Wallace, Brian Hartline, Jared Odrick and Olivier Vernon are all just dealing with minor injuries. Probably being held out for precautionary reasons.

      Randy Starks could be nursing something a little more serious, though. Not to say Starks won’t be ready to go by Week 1, but he’s the only player of the bunch that I’d bet probably wouldn’t play if tonight was a regular-season game.

    god I hope Jonathan Martin looks good tonight. Don’t want Tannehill killed during a meaningless game

    • Kyle says:

      I honestly think Martin is going to be decent. He’s getting better every single day facing such good DEs like Vernon and Jordan.

    • Fins_Swag says:

      Worried about Ware rushing against Martin. Hopefully they’ll use a RB or an H-Back on Tannehills left side to help the LT out.

  4. Fins_Swag says:

    I like the Dolphins starters to get the best of Cowboys tonight. Im thinking Tannehill leads one TD drive with some good running from Lamar Miller and Im thinking 3 three and outs for Kyle Orton

  5. How Bout Dem Cowboys! says:

    Let’s hope they’re no injuries on either team tonight! But I must say Cowboys gonna squish the Fish tonight like they always do against Miami lol
