The league meetings in Phoenix, Arizona this week provide a great deal of information in terms of what teams have done in the past and what they are looking to do in the future. On Tuesday afternoon, Miami Dolphins general manager Dennis Hickey spoke to the media and talked about the rehabilitation of safety Louis Delmas and offensive tackle Branden Albert.
In regards to Delmas, who suffered a torn ACL in the game against the Baltimore Ravens in December, Hickey said that he expects him to be on the field and fully participating in June during the team's mini-camps. This is a bit surprising considering the quick turnaround but with the developments in the medical field and the way other athletes have been recovering from similar injuries, it's starting to become more of the norm. The Dolphins re-signed Delmas to a one-year deal worth $1.475 million dollars with no guaranteed money several days ago .
Albert, who tore his ACL and MLC in November during the game against the Detroit Lions in November, is on track with his rehabilitation progression plan, according to Hickey. Earlier in the day, head coach Joe Philbin said that he would not be surprised if he was playing week one based off the positive and motivated mindset that Albert has.
