MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (CBSMiami.com) – Now that the Suck for Luck sweepstakes is over for the Miami Dolphins, the team has a legitimate shot of winning their second game of the season Sunday when the Washington Redskins come to Sun Life Stadium.
Dolphins head coach Tony Sparano said that the team had an “outstanding” practice Friday and that the team had a lot of energy.
“We had a lot of guys practicing and everybody out there,” Sparano said. “It’s nice to not have to prepare for getting on a plane tomorrow. We’ll let them sleep in a little bit tomorrow.”
For the first time in a long time, the Dolphins will be at or near full strength. The Fins only have one player, Nolan Carroll, who is listed as questionable for the Redskins game.
It’s all giving the Fins plenty of confidence heading into Sunday.
“I think that obviously when you win, everything is a little bit better,” Sparano said. “These guys were anxious to get back to the practice field and that was good news. They were anxious to get to their three days worth of work.”
The Fins will be facing an injury-depleted Washington Redskins team. The Skins will be without wide receivers Santana Moss and Niles Paul. In addition, safety O.J. Atogwe and right tackle Jammal Brown are listed as questionable for the game.
The Skins have seven players listed as probable for the game including: tight end Fred Davis; defensive end Kedric Golston; cornerback DeAngelo Hall; safety LaRon Landry.
