Vernon Carey sits again

DAVIE — Not much changed here at practice today.

For the second straight day, guard Vernon Carey was the only player to sit out. Carey continues to recover from a sprained ankle he sustained in last week’s loss to the Dallas Cowboys. The percentage improves of Nate Garner stepping in Sunday against the Oakland Raiders.

The good news for the Dolphins is there isn’t much drop-off from Carey to Garner, who have filled in nicely when called upon. We’ll have an update on Carey’s status later today.

Among the other positives was kicker Dan Carpenter seemed closer to 100 percent, perhaps his first full participation since injuring his groin two weeks ago. He could come in handy Sunday in what could be deemed as the Field Goal Bowl based on last week’s performances. The Dolphins and Raiders combined for 10 3-pointers. This isn’t good unless we’re talking about basketball. In the Raiders’ case, at least they were able to win.
