Minicamp Wrap-Up

The Dolphins wrapped up their second of three minicamps on Sunday with a morning practice that focused mostly on special teams. Here's a quick recap of the weekend, which featured five practices.

-- First-round pick Ted Ginn Jr. was in attendance but couldn't take part because of a foot injury he sustained in the BCS Championship. Every other draft pick took part.

-- Wide receiver Marty Booker, the subject of trade rumors, declined to talk about his status this weekend. Booker, incidentally, was back catching punts during Sunday's practice along with veteran offseason acquisition Az-Zahir Hakim. Of course, that job will belong to Ginn during the season.

-- Last year's first-round pick, Jason Allen, continued to line up at cornerback, as he did, in the April minicamp.

-- Tight end David Martin was able to practice on Sunday after missing the first two days with the flu. On Sunday, it was fullback Kyle Eckel's turn to miss practice because of the flu.

-- Cornerback Andre' Goodman was sporting a sling on his left shoulder after he was injured during Friday afternoon's practice.

-- Speaking of Goodman, he and Travis Daniels have swapped. Daniels wanted 29 because that's the number he wore at LSU.

-- Offensive lineman Joe Toledo missed Sunday's practice after experiencing soreness in the foot he injured late last year.

-- In addition to the players on the roster, the Dolphins also had five players at the minicamp on a tryout basis, including two with famous fathers. The group included Sam Houston State WR Michael Malone, the son of former NBA star Moses Malone, and DB David Lofton, the son of longtime NFL wide receiver James Lofton. The other three were WR Charles Futrell from North Carolina Central, P Cameron Muro from Hampton and LS Jake Weber from Illinois State.

-- Owner Wayne Huizenga addressed the team after Saturday morning's practice, telling the players, among other things, to stay out of trouble.

-- Rookie fullback Reagan Mauia has become somewhat of a celebrity thanks to his YouTube video when he runs through a wall at the University of Hawaii. "It's cool," Mauia said. "I didn't think it was going to blow up like this. I was just messing around out there, just having fun."
