After missing most of the offseason workout sessions over the past month, defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh made his presence felt in a big way today. On several plays during the morning practice session, Suh bullied his way past offensive guards Billy Turner and Dallas Thomas, and spent almost as much time in the backfield as the Dolphins running backs.
It wasn’t a perfect practice session, as Suh was whistled for jumping offsides twice. But he left no doubt that his choice to work out on his own this offseason hasn’t affected his impact on the Dolphins defense this year. Suh seems to have only one speed, and practices at full game speed. And although he dominated in today’s practice, his presence should help the Dolphins’ inexperienced Guards develop more quickly.
With Suh lining up next to Cameron Wake, the left side of the defensive line is going to be a nightmare for opposing teams to deal with this season.
