Jakeem Grant was named AFC special teams player of the week after his 102-yard kickoff return for a touchdown.
Here are some things we noticed at practice:
• DeVante Parker is suited up and playing catch with a coach at the start of practice. His right hand is bandaged up. And it does not look like it is easy for Parker, who has a broken finger, to catch. Parker missed the season opener. Director of player development Clyde Christensen and assistant coach Shawn Jefferson are watching Parker work. Parker participated in stretching before practice with his teammates. Parker then participated in receiver drills at the start of practice. At one point, Parker dumped what looked like an oven mitt for a regular glove.
• Iron man/snapper John Denney is at practice, in uniform. Denney worked through a shoulder injury suffered last week. The Dolphins have added snapper Lucas Gravelle to the practice squad. Denney has played in every Dolphins game since Nick Saban landed in South Florida.
• Guard Josh Sitton and wide receiver Danny Amendola were not immediately spotted at the start of Dolphins practice.
