Dolphins OL Branden Albert not guaranteed for Week 1
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

While Dolphins tackle Branden Albert avoided the PUP list at the start of training camp and has spent some time practicing with the team, the lineman is being brought along slowly and his status for Week 1 of the regular season remains in doubt, per the Palm Beach Post

Albert tore his ACL and MCL during Week 10 last season, and the team remains cautious about his recovery. 

"I don’t think surprised is the right term," Dolphins offensive line coach John Benton said about Albert's return for the regular season. "I'm a positive person so I'm sure expecting that to happen. At the same time, I understand it's a fairly serious injury he's recovering from."

Dolphins OL Branden Albert participates in drills Sunday
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Dolphins offensive lineman Branden Albert was a limited participant in certain drills during Sunday's practice, reports The Palm Beach Post.

It was the first time since training camp opened last week where Albert was able to do more than just warmups and walk-through drills.

"It was good to have him out in pads — for him, for the team," coach Joe Philbin said. "Just take it a day at a time and see when we can add more to his plate and go from there."

Dolphins' Branden Albert avoids PUP, says knee is fine
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Dolphins offensive lineman Branden Albert's surgically repaired right knee feels fine, he reported after a walk-through to open camp on Thursday. 

Albert ruptured his ACL and MCL last November. 

"It's been a long road. I'm just happy I'm not on that PUP list and I can be involved with the team. I'm not off on the side no more like a stepchild," Albert said, per the Palm Beach Post.

Dolphins LT Branden Albert, DB Don Jones out of OTAs
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

As expected, Dolphins left tackle Branden Albert (knee) and defensive back Don Jones (shoulder) have been ruled out of OTA work, per the Miami Herald.

Albert is expected to be ready to roll for the season opener. The team has repeatedly claimed that he is on track, though offensive line coach John Benton is making no guarantees.

"From what I've heard it looks promising," he told the Palm Beach Post. "To say I'm confident is probably a little bit of a stretch. He promises me. I certainly hope that's the case - we're a much better crew with him. At the same time you have to make the plans that he won't (be ready)."

The shoulder injury that has sidelined Jones has been a factor since late in the regular season.

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.
