Dolphins left tackle Branden Albert progressing

Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Sunday from around the Web:

Morning take: Albert continues to progress and get closer to his stated goal of returning in Week 1 of the regular season against the Washington Redskins. Miami may also try to get Albert action late in the preseason, if possible.

  • Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald writes Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin might be improving.

Morning take: Philbin may get better in the coaching seat entering his fourth season. That would be big for a team that has finished 8-8 the past two seasons.

Morning take: Neither receiver is expected to make the 53-man roster. But McDonald gets another shot to put something on tape and audition for another team.
