CAMP NOTES

The Dolphins were able to get in their morning workout on Monday, but by mid-afternoon it was raining and looking like it was possible the afternoon workout would have to be canceled for the third straight day.

The rain has been the biggest development of camp so far, not including the focus on the running back and quarterback positions, of course.

At running back, Sammy Morris has looked very impressive early and the feeling remains he will be a bigger factor in the offense than perhaps even Travis Minor.

Here are some of the noteworthy developments so far in camp:

-- Despite the absence of Ricky Williams, all indications are the Dolphins offense will emphasize as much as before. That should come as no great surprise given Coach Dave Wannstedt's conservative nature.

-- Speaking of Williams, ESPN is reporting on Monday that he has filed his retirement papers. That might be just a formality because he wasn't really expected to reconsider his decision anyway.

-- Cornerbacks Sam Madison (hamstring) and Patrick Surtain (groin) both have missed practice time because of minor injuries.

-- Offensive lineman Eric Wilson, who has little chance of making the roster, was taken off the field on a cart on Monday morning.

-- Defensive tackle Tim Bowens is being held out of some practices during training camp as a preventive measure. Bowens usually sits out one practice when the Dolphins work out twice on the same day.

Cornerback Mesene Louisdor became the first casualty of training camp as he was waived over the weekend.
