Fiedler's first two passes during a seven-on-seven drill missed the mark, but he then found his target. One example was a deep pass over the middle to tight end Alonzo Mayes.
"Jay was actually sharp for the first day," Coach Dave Wannstedt said. "It was good for him just to start getting into it, to gain some confidence. But this is just a start."
The Dolphins are going to be cautious with Fiedler. He should take part in some drills this weekend when the Dolphins work out with the Tennessee Titans, but he won't be involved in anything where he might be required to make sudden movements.
Fiedler is scheduled to visit with Dr. Marc Philipon next week to get the go-ahead to work on a full-time basis.
The important thing is that everything is on schedule for Fiedler to be back in full swing before too long.
While Fiedler returned to practice on Wednesday, Ray Lucas was given the day off to rest.
"Just a little sore," Lucas said.
