DAVIE— Olivier Vernon suffered an apparent ankle injury Monday during an 11-on-11 drill at Miami Dolphins training camp.
Vernon was trying to strip the football from former Miami Hurricanes teammate Lamar Miller during the play.
Once the play stopped, Vernon stayed on the ground noticeably in pain.
Vernon, who is competing to start at defensive end, was a fourth-round draft pick in April by the Dolphins.
Vernon was able to return to the field later in practice after 20 minutes on the sidelines.
