Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick
Football (practice) is back!
Brian Flores and his Miami Dolphins open the franchise’s 54th training camp Thursday, with the first of 11 open practices scheduled in South Florida. All but the Dolphins’ Aug. 3 scrimmage will be held at their Davie headquarters, where covered seating is available. The scrimmage will be held at Hard Rock Stadium.
The Dolphins also have two additional practices scheduled with the Buccaneers in Tampa (Aug. 13-14).
