Dolphins' Porter, Smiley Limited In Practice; Sparano Hopeful For Sunday

By  | 

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - Miami Dolphins linebacker Joey Porter and guard Justin Smiley remain limited in practice because of injuries, but coach Tony Sparano says he's hopeful they'll play Sunday at San Diego.

Both players were limited Friday for the second day in a row. Porter is nursing a sore right hamstring, and Smiley has a shoulder injury.

Porter's injury could create an opportunity for newcomer Cameron Wake, a two-time winner of the CFL's top defensive player award. Wake was inactive for the first two games.

Smiley's backup is veteran Joe Berger, who played as a reserve in both games.
