GM: Dolphins LT Branden Albert should be fine for Week 1
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Dolphins general manager Dennis Hickey has expressed optimism that left tackle Branden Albert will be ready to roll by the regular season opener.

Albert has been rehabbing from a torn ACL and MCL sustained last November against Detroit. He had signed a five-year, $46 million contract the previous March and had been performing particularly well before going down.

"It's been a long rehab and he's really attacked it every day," Hickey told SiriusXM NFL Radio, adding that there was a "reasonable explanation" that he would be ready for Week 1. "We really like his progress. He's out there with his team working out. We're really encouraged by what we're seeing with him."

Ja'Wuan Williams was forced to move to left tackle following the Albert injury in 2014. But he struggled at that position and is expected to move to his more familiar right tackle spot this year.

GM: Dolphins LT Branden Albert should be ready by opener
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Dolphins left tackle Branden Albert is recovering quickly from reconstructive knee surgery and should be ready by the season opener.

That's the word from general manager Dennis Hickey.

"We want to be measured and stick to our plan," Hickey told Fox Sports. "It's an extensive rehab, but it's going well and he's on track for the opening game."

Albert was sidelined for the last seven games of the 2014 season after rupturing the ACL and MCL in his right knee.

Dolphins OT Branden Albert using boxing to rehab torn ACL
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

Dolphins offensive tackle Branden Albert is rehabbing from a season-ending ACL tear by working out in a boxing ring, reports NFL.com. 

Albert was on his way to a likely Pro Bowl nod when he tore the ACL in Week 10. 

"When you get there and you're at the top of your game, and something like this happened, it's like, 'Damn, I was at the top of my game, doing good,'" Albert said."My thing is proving my worth. I never wanted to come down here and have somebody say, 'Well, he shut it down when he got paid.'"

Dolphins GM Hickey: Branden Albert's 'difficult' rehab is 'going well'
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

While speaking at the combine, Dolphins general manager Dennis HIckey provided a minor update on left tackle Branden Albert's rehab process, per the Palm Beach Post.

"The rehab is going well. But it's a long rehab and it's a difficult (rehab)," Hickey said.

Albert ruptured the ACL and MCL in his right knee Nov. 9, and quarterback Ryan Tannehill was sacked 29 times without Albert protecting him the second half of the season. The Miami Herald reported earlier in January that the Dolphins are "beyond encouraged, and pleasantly surprised" with his recovery from surgery, and that he is expected to make a full recovery in time for the 2015 opener.
