The Miami Dolphins, according to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald via Twitter, will miss about a weeks worth of Dolphins camp after tweaking his hamstring. That time off will also include this weekends intra-squad scrimmage.
Wallace hurt his hamstring on Tuesday and left practice early, he did not practice on Wednesday. The injury is not believed to be serious and the team appears to be taking a cautious approach to his return. There is no fear that he would not be available for pre-season games or the start of the season.
Missing time for veteran players is not always a bad thing. They normally have the system down and a player like Wallace should have no problems falling behind with learning the Bill Lazor offense, in fact, studying the system from the sideline could help with a more complete vision of the field and his role.
The downside of course is his timing with Ryan Tannehill who missed two deep balls yesterday during drills. A lot of the teams success will rely on the ability of Tannehill and Wallace to be on the same page. For now it’s nothing more than a tweak and it’s good that the Dolphins are giving their speed receiver time off to get it healed right. The time away will also help the Dolphins get a better look at some of the other promising wide-outs on the roster as well.
