Second ‘Hard Knocks’ episode tracking Dolphins features inside look at Jaelan Phillips’ Achilles injury

Miami Dolphins edge defender Jaelan Phillips’ Achilles injury suffered in Friday’s win over the New York Jets was a focal point of Tuesday night’s second episode of HBO reality series “Hard Knocks” following the team for the remainder of the season. Phillips knew immediately that he tore his Achilles on his takeoff on a fourth-quarter pass rush at MetLife Stadium. “I think my (expletive) popped, my Achilles,” the cameras and microphones captured Phillips saying. “It felt like someone (expletive) shot me in my (expletive) Achilles. I thought someone like stepped on me.” Cameras showed Phillips...

Here’s hoping UCF isn’t ducking USF in a bowl game | Commentary

Let’s get right down to it, shall we? UCF and USF should play in a bowl game. We want them to play in a bowl game. We need them to play in a bowl game. Any bowl game. Preferably right here in Orlando at the Avocados From Mexico Cure Bowl, which has raised millions of dollars over the years for cancer research and is actually played in UCF’s home stadium. UCF-USF would sell out the Bounce House and raise even more money to help cure cancer. A good game for a great cause. Or if USF doesn’t want to play a bowl game in UCF’s home stadium then play the game in the Gasparilla Bowl at USF’s home field...

Hurricanes starting quarterback Tyler Van Dyke enters transfer portal

The Miami Hurricanes will need a new starting quarterback in 2024. Incumbent starter Tyler Van Dyke is entering the transfer portal, a source told the South Florida Sun Sentinel, ending a UM career that spawned high expectations and low moments. “I want to thank the University of Miami, my teammates, coaching staff, and everyone associated with the university who have made this chapter in my life truly special and invaluable,” Van Dyke wrote in a post on social media. “I have created lifelong friendships and memories, which I will always cherish. I am deeply appreciative of the opportunities...

Dolphins reportedly expected to sign veteran edge rusher, Deerfield Beach native Jason Pierre-Paul

The Miami Dolphins were expected to add a pass rusher after Jaelan Phillips’ season-ending Achilles tear. It appears that addition will come in the form of veteran Jason Pierre-Paul, a three-time Pro Bowler, two-time Super Bowl champion and South Florida native. Pierre-Paul, currently a member of the New Orleans Saints’ practice squad, is reportedly expected to sign with the Dolphins’ active roster, according to NFL Network on Monday night. He later posted, in part, on Instagram: “I’M COMING HOME,” with a dolphin emoji. Pierre-Paul, who turns 35 on Jan. 1, has 94 1/2 career sacks in 180 NFL...

UCF stumbles in loss to Stetson despite career showing by Jaylin Sellers

UCF guard Jaylin Sellers scored a career-high 34 points, but it wasn’t enough as the Knights dropped a home contest Sunday against Stetson, 85-82. Sellers was 12-of-16 from the floor with 8 rebounds and 2 assists. Stetson’s Jalen Blackmon had 26 points, connecting on six 3-pointers, while Stephan Swanson added 19 points. UCF (4-2, 0-0 Big 12) was fresh off claiming the championship in the Jacksonville Classic after defeating South Dakota State (83-80) and Charlotte (74-71 OT) last week. “We got up by 13 in the first half and when we’re up like that, we have to learn to build off that lead,”...

Changes are coming with Gators among 3 things learned during home loss to FSU

GAINESVILLE — Florida football’s 24-15 flop against unbeaten Florida State followed a familiar, tired script. Coach Billy Napier’s squad staked a 12-0 lead as a sellout crowd at the Swamp rattled backup quarterback Tate Rodemaker on Saturday night. But the Gators (5-7) stumbled down the stretch as penalties, offensive ineptitude and special-teams miscues sent UF to its fourth straight loss after leading during the second half to end 2023 on a five-game skid. “We didn’t have the season we wanted to have,” linebacker Teradja Mitchell said. “When it was needed, we didn’t execute.” Here are three...

Winderman’s view: Nothing wrong with Heat at 10-7 after 12 of first 17 on road

NEW YORK — Observations and other notes of interest from Saturday night’s 112-97 loss to the Brooklyn Nets: – If not for a pair of blown 21-point leads, this could have been a 4-1 trip. – Instead, 2-3. – But there still is upside. – With Saturday closing the Heat’s opening run of 12 of 17 on the road, 10-7 hardly is the worst outcome. – Yes, some got away. – But this wasn’t in that category. – This was making sure Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo were right for what comes next. – An actual homestand. – No, the competition over these first 17 hardly was overwhelming, but the travel was. – So rest,...

Heat come to end of road without Butler, Adebayo in 112-97 loss to Nets

NEW YORK – What does it look like without any of your top four scorers? For the Miami Heat, it looked like Saturday night’s  112-97 loss to the Brooklyn Nets at Barclays Center. Playing in the injury absences of Jimmy Butler, Bam Adebayo, Tyler Herro and Duncan Robinson, the Heat performed like a bunch of imperfect strangers, closing with 18 turnovers, the most by a Nets opponent this season, and lacking a consistent source of offense other than the 22 points provided forward Caleb Martin and the from by rookie wing Jaime Jaquez Jr. The Heat also got eight points and a season-high-tying 10 rebounds...

Chris Perkins: Dolphins win by playing tough, complementary football — a formula that works in December and beyond

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Miami Dolphins running back Raheem Mostert didn’t plan on looking at the halftime stats. But he couldn’t avoid it. The stat sheet was right there when he went into the locker room.  It showed eight carries for 15 yards. Those meager totals didn’t last much longer. The “finesse” Dolphins (8-3) played big-boy football for the second consecutive week, getting physical on both sides of the ball while playing complementary football. Miami’s efforts resulted in a 34-13 victory over the struggling New York Jets (4-7) at MetLife Stadium and showed the Dolphins are capable of...

Chris Perkins and David Furones break down Miami Dolphins’ win over the New York Jets | VIDEO

In this video, the South Florida Sun Sentinel’s Chris Perkins and David Furones discuss the Miami Dolphins’ 34-13 victory over the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey in the NFL’s first Black Friday game. The Dolphins won in impressive fashion by playing complementary football. Safety Jevon Holland had a 99-yard interception return touchdown to provide the game-turning play. But edge rusher Jaelan Phillips sustained an Achilles injury that might be season-ending. Regardless, Miami improved to 8-3 and stays in first place in the AFC East.
