Joe Philbin said Knowshon Moreno's conditioning is pretty good for this time of year but there's room for improvement before camp.
No one is surprised that Moreno is running ahead of Lamar Miller, Daniel Thomas, and Mike Gillislee in Miami are they? Miller is the most talented pure runner on Miami's roster, but Moreno is just more reliable at this point and not to mention his superior passing blocking ability. The Dolphins will still play the running back by committee game but once the dust settles Moreno will come out on top in the end because of his consistency over the length of the season. New play caller Bill Lazor hails from Philadelphia, a run-heavy team. So expect the Dolphins' team rushing attempts to take a significant 2014 leap. ANALYST: Drew Phelps
Luol Deng (knee) won't return Sunday.
Michael Beasley is likely the candidate to replace the Deng starting minutes for the rest of the way. There is no word on the long term implications of the injury yet, but if there is, Beasley might be a solid play for the rest of the season. Analysis: Dom Murtha
Athletics reassign Luke Carlin, Max Muncy and Andy Parrino to minor league camp.
One of these things is not like the other. Muncy is a 23-year old prospect, while Carlin and Parrino are older journeymen. Muncy, a first baseman, his 21 home runs in 2013 at High-A in 428 plate appearances. But the power hasn't translated to Double-A yet as he hit just seven home runs in 530 plate appearances there last year. Muncy isn't really a prospect you have to know, but he's far more notable than Carlin and Parrino. Analysis: Brett Talley
