On Monday, the Miami Dolphins signed Danny Hrapmann, who will handle the kicking duties in Friday's preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons and may stick around a little longer after that. Due to Caleb Sturgis' groin injury, the Dolphins will keep Hrapmann around so they don't have to rush Sturgis back.
“In talking to our medical people, I think it’s a day- to-day thing,” Philbin said. “Players get injured in football, practicing football, and it’s part of the game. This guy is a dedicated professional. He spends extra time getting himself in shape and condition.”
For his part, Hrapmann understands the situation but plans on making the most of his opportunity.
“As a kicker at this point of the year, there are not a lot of spots open for guys,” Hrapmann said. “Unfortunately for Caleb, he’s nursing an injury right now. But I’m just going to do what I can to try to help out. There’s 32 jobs, but there’s no telling how many people are exactly out there waiting for one of those calls. You’ve just got to be grateful for every opportunity that you get.”
