Stills back locked up, and Parker has been slowed by a sore hamstring, but both took part in Tuesdays walkthrough. Guard Laremy Tunsil also was back after leaving Mondays practice with a foot injury.For the rookies, the injuries were a reminder second-stringers are always on standby.Im sorry my teammates went down, Grant said, but we shouldnt have a drop-off just because theyre out.Grants always trying to win a job returning punts and kickoffs. He ran back kickoffs in college, but never fielded punts until he joined the Dolphins and admitted to jitters in the first preseason game.I think all the jitters are out, he said. No bad moments go through my head. Kickoff returns, I feel great. Its kind of the same as college -- you dont want to spend too much time dancing.
