Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Friday from around the web:
Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald wonders if the New England Patriots are playing games by placing quarterback Tom Brady on the injury report with a throwing shoulder.
Morning take: Miami put its quarterback -- Ryan Tannehill -- on the injury report with the same ailment on Wednesday. It would seem a little petty for New England to mess with the Dolphins in that way. However, you can never doubt the potential of gamesmanship with Bill Belichick.
Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post writes Hall of Famer Dan Marino would like to be involved in a front-office job.
Morning take: When you were as good as Marino, that competitiveness doesn’t go away. Marino looks at a former rival like John Elway and thinks he has the same potential. However, the Dolphins are going in a different direction.
The Sun Sentinel previews five matchups the Dolphins must win against the Patriots.
Morning take: Defending New England Pro Bowl tight end Rob Gronkowski is arguably the biggest matchup. Miami struggles defending tight ends and Gronkowski is one of the best.
Andy Kent of the Dolphins team site takes a look at Miami’s improving ground game.
Morning take: The Dolphins improved for one game against a Buffalo Bills team that’s struggled against the run. I need to see if Miami can keep this up for a couple more games before I consider the ground game trending upwards.
