Just as the Dolphins learned they’ll go without one player in the secondary, on Wednesday they finally got another one back in the rotation at practice.
Culliver had been out of the picture since joining the team in August as he convalesced from the MCL/ACL injury he sustained as a member of the Washington Redskins.
“It’s going to feel good,” Culliver said. “I know I’m super, over-the-top ready. I’m ready now, but it’s just repetition and getting my helmet and keep doing what I’m doing.”

Culliver has 26 career NFL starts and has appeared in 52 total contests and hopes to employ that experience in aid of a secondary that has looked lost and out of place more often than not.
He contends the mental reps and team meetings of the past few months have been helpful in getting ready to assume a position of influence on this team. But he also readily admits that preparation pales in comparison to physical involvement.
“I definitely feel good and confident catching the ball, running, cutting, jumping,” Culliver said. “Pretty much every aspect like that, but it’s a different feel when you have the helmet on and pads.”
