It isn't the first time a hurricane has disrupted the Dolphins. Just think back to the 1992 season when the regular season opener against New England was pushed back to both teams' bye week because South Florida still was dealing with the aftereffects of Hurricane Andrew.
In other news and notes:
-- The Dolphins signed veteran defensive end Chidi Ahanotu on Wednesday to bolster a line that lost AFC sack leader Adewale Ogunleye.
If there is a game Friday, Ahanotu would play only a little, if at all. Coach Dave Wannstedt said he was counting on Ahanotu contributed as an inside pass rusher in obvious passing situations.
-- Wannstedt was asked Wednesday which players had surprised the most during training camp, and he mentioned offensive linemen Seth McKinney and John St. Clair, along with rookies Derrick Pope, Tony Bua and Poole.
-- Wannstedt this week raised the possibility of keeping as many as eight linebackers on the 53-man roster.
