    It's minicamp and there is no hitting. The 2016 season ended a long time ago yet we have a bunch of injured players. Why?

    It's not like people just magically heal once the season is over. Injuries happen, we just so happen to have a lot of injury prone players. And its not like its only exclusively us that have guys limping into the summer

    I'm sure guys are held out any little scrape. No reason to push through in June.

    I'm actually very happy with Miami's injury situation. Looks like they'll have no serious injuries going into training camp. The only people that will likely be out will be Misi and Pouncey who are recovering from last year's injuries. There are several teams who have already lost starters or key contributors to knee, shoulder or serious hamstring issues.

    Who is injured? Tunsil is just a precaution he would play a game if it was today . Misi and Pouncy are always hurt no surprise. Who else?

    Some half-wit field maintenance guy bought up a bunch of AstroTurf off Ebay they salvaged from The Vet in 2003.

    Gotta be cognisant of a 20-24 game season plus OTA's, practices and mini camps. That's why reps in games and practice are so closely monitored. Tunsil's pulled hamstring will be fully healed and rehabbed before he is given another rep. Usually it's just the vets that are held out, but I believe Gase takes injuries more seriously than previous coaches we've had which in the long run should be an asset.

    Here's a few reasons ... depending on the time of the season any of them could be the "main reason."

    1. It's preseason, so the coaching staff doesn't want to take any chances with key players and veterans. Gase even said that vets of 8 or more years are likely to be rested periodically. Players recovering, players with minor issues, they hold them out unless they absolutely need the reps.

    2. There's a lot of people to evaluate, letting some of those you already know about take a day off isn't a bad thing, you then get to look at guys who need more reps.

    3. Our front office thinks a lot of it's own sports science and health programs, so it tends to get injured players on the cheap and hope to rehabilitate them for great value. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, but it always creates a roster with more injured players.

    4. Players aren't yet in real football shape, so their bodies get tweaked and it's good to give them some rest.

    5. It's darn hot and humid in South Florida this time of year ... muscles have problems, best not to push it too fast just yet.

    6. Bees man ... it's the danged bees.

    we don't?

    only injuries of concern are from last year (Koa, Pouncey) and Rashawn Scott.

    I think if you believe the Dolphins have a bunch of injured players than you would freakout if you were the fan of 90% of the other teams and looked at their current injury situations. Miami's might be one of the healthiest teams in the league right now. If we make it throug preseason with just a few minor nicks and bruises I will be doing back flips. I think Pouncey will spend most if not all of the training camp on the pup list, seeing there's not reason to bring him off if you're committed to letting him sit and recover for most of camp. He could do most of the same things he's doing now on the pup list. Misi on the other hand needs to get his health in order to make a run at the 53 man roster. I'm think Miami will look to see what lbs around the league get released in August

    Koa & Pouncey....how many years have their injuries been a concern now? 2, 3, 4?

    I guess Gase feels that the ROI on these guys make it worth keeping them around...

    Well Pouncy is financially a can't cut. Not until next year that is. Misi is a different story and I suspect he will be a late preseason cut

    I think it just comes down to the organization taking too many chances on injured player both in the draft and free agency.

    There's a point where you take a chance, but Miami has drafted too many players high with an injured history and it's come back to bite them a bit.

    There appeared to be a change in that approach in the 2017 draft as the team stayed away from those types of players. In the past, I think you would have seen the Dolphins take a chance on a player like Reuben Foster as an example.
