There may be a battle brewing at strong-side linebacker for the Miami Dolphins.
Ikaika Alama-Francis, coming off a five-tackle showing in Friday’s preseason loss to the Falcons, got some work with the first unit during Sunday’s practice inside the bubble.
Koa Misi, the second-rounder who has started the first three preseason games, worked some with the second unit but also took first-team reps as well, Dolphins coach Tony Sparano said.
“We’re looking at him there right now,” Sparano said of IAF, who just keeps impressing as he gets used to his new position. “Not necessarily a change, and it might even just include that Ike was in that group and we’re maybe looking at Koa as well. …
“Not really a change, but [IAF] was in the first group today. I would say it’s about trying to align in some situations … your ducks up in the right order a little bit.”
In other words, there’s a position battle brewing.
