While the starters will likely see some early playing time before heading back to the sidelines, the backups and players fighting for a roster spot will make the game worth watching.The Dolphins are rebuilding this year, which means there will be plenty of young players gaining experience in tonight’s game. This year will also feature the coaching staff making their debut. Will they be comfortable in these new roles?“I think it’s exciting for both [offensive coordinator Chad O’Shea and defensive coordinator Patrick Graham],” head coach Brian Flores, heading into his first game as the head coach, said earlier in the week. “I would say both have called a game previously – not in the regular season, but preseason games. It’ll be exciting for both guys. I remember being in that role just a year ago. There’s some excitement. There’s this feeling that you want to do everything right, make the perfect call on everything, but the game’s not played that way. It just doesn’t work out that way normally. I’m excited to see both guys perform on Thursday night. I have a lot of confidence in both – well really, all three coordinators and the entire coaching staff, or else they wouldn’t be in that role. Both are smart. Both are creative, and I’m excited to see both of them Thursday night.”When asked where the coordinator will be during the game, on the field or up in the coaches’ booth, Flores explained, “They’re going to be on the field. I think their voices need to be heard on the field by the players. I would say most coordinators are on the field. I know there’s a handful that like to be in the booth, and I think it’s a personal preference thing, but I think they’ll both be on the field.”The coaches will be worth watching during Thursday’s game. But who are the “must watch” players for Miami?Josh RosenThe Dolphins said Ryan Fitzpatrick would start the first preseason game, which immediately makes it appear he has the lead for the starter’s spot when it comes to the regular season. However, Rosen playing in the second-string spot means he should see the majority of the playing time on Thursday. The Dolphins need to see what they have in Rosen William Hayes Jersey , and while the game will likely be pretty vanilla in terms of schemes and could be sloppy with younger players trying to force things to happen, if Rosen can show a command of the offense and some of the potential that made him a top-ten pick by the Arizona Cardinals in 2018, Miami may have made the obvious choice for a not-so-obvious reason.The position battle between Fitzpatrick and Rosen started heavily in Fitzpatrick’s favor, but the younger passer has been coming on strong the last week or so. A good performance on Thursday could shake up the depth chart a little.Secondary not named Xavien Howard, Reshad Jones, T.J. McDonald, and Minkah FitzpatrickThe Miami secondary is actually pretty deep and talented. But there is a hole. While some people pointed to the unofficial depth chart the Dolphins released this week, with Fitzpatrick listed as a backup safety, the Dolphins will get Fitzpatrick on the field in plenty of situations this year. None of that group of four should be a concern.The hole comes at the cornerback position opposite Howard. Will Eric Rowe step up into it? Can someone else, like Cornell Armstrong, Jalen Davis, Torry McTyer. or Tyler Patmon, show they have the talent to claim that spot? Offensive lineThe starters - especially Laremy Tunsil and Daniel Kilgore - will likely not be on the field for very many snaps on Thursday. That said, the Dolphins could look to get extra snaps to some of the younger players like Michael Deiter and Shaq Calhoun. Jesse Davis could see extra time as well if the team is looking to move him back to right tackle after playing right guard last year.Miami’s success - and maybe the confidence of Rosen - could be contingent on the offensive line coming together.Bobby McCainI did not include McCain in the secondary portion of the breakdown because, while he is not likely to be an issue on the field, he has been a cornerback for his career and his now moving to free safety. Everything seems to say he is doing well back there, but now we are starting to see game speed, and he will be asked to do things he has not had to do before in a game. Maybe there will not be any issue at all, but he is someone to watch - though it may be a quick appearance for him.Mike GesickiThe Dolphins could use a big-bodied tight end, especially in the red zone, creating mismatches and catching passes. Gesicki would seem to be exactly the player to fill that hole Akeem Spence Jersey , but last year he was washed out too often, and asked to block too often, as a rookie. I would anticipate Miami trying to get him involved in the offense tonight, trying to get him some experience and reps, especially with Rosen if he is going to become the quarterback of the future for the team. The Miami Dolphins’ roster is becoming as thin as their playoff chances.Starting safeties Reshad Jones and safety Bobby McCain went on injured reserve Wednesday, further depleting an already shaky secondary.On Tuesday, Miami cut leading rusher Mark Walton hours after he was arrested on charges of punching his pregnant girlfriend in the head. It was Walton’s fourth arrest in less than a year.The roster moves leave in further disarray a depth chart that has been a patchwork all season as the Dolphins (2-8) rebuild under rookie coach Brian Flores.“We’ve had moving parts really the entire season,” Flores said. “It started early.”He’s right: On Sept. 1, for example, the Dolphins traded three starters and acquired seven players who are still on the roster.They traded starting safety Minkah Fitzpatrick on Sept. 17 and dealt Kenyan Drake — then their leading rusher — on Oct. 28. Pro Bowl cornerback Xavien Howard went on injured reserve Oct. 30, and top receiver Preston Williams suffered a season-ending knee injury Nov. 3.Finding replacements has been especially challenging for a team with no talent to spare. The Dolphins, who play Sunday at Cleveland, have been outscored by 16.6 points per game, worst in the NFL.“It has been a unique year,” quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick said. “There has been a lot of churning and turnover. You try to make the best out of it.“You find the guys you can rely on, and lean on them. Other guys you’ve got to get up to speed, and they’ve got to figure it out, or there will be another guy in the next week.”Of the Dolphins’ 53 players, 23 weren’t with the team in training camp. Given such an unsettled situation, many agree Flores has done well to win two games.“As a staff, we just try to get the guys who are going to be available to us ready to play A.J. Derby Jersey ,” he said.This week the secondary has the biggest holes to plug. Jones, Miami’s highest-paid player at $13 million, suffered a cracked rib earlier this year and played in just four games, while McCain’s season was ended by a shoulder injury.They’re two of the 11 starters in the secondary this season.“It’s definitely different every week,” said safety Steven Parker, who was acquired off waivers just before the season and will make his fourth start Sunday. “There are a lot of moving parts, but you’ve got to be ready to go. Nobody is going to hold your hand.”Newcomers to the active roster kept coming Wednesday. Safety Adrian Colbert was signed off Seattle’s practice squad, linebacker Andrew Van Ginkel was activated from injured reserve, and defensive tackle Gerald Willis was promoted from the practice squad.All may get a chance to play Sunday.“It’s up to the players to make the most of the opportunities,” Flores said. “We’ve had a lot of guys step up when they’ve gotten an opportunity. Not to get on a soap box, but that’s what life is about. When you get an opportunity, it’s a chance to take advantage and carve out a role and try to create a career for yourself.”Jones has had a 10-year career with the Dolphins, including two Pro Bowl seasons. He got off to a bad start with the new coaching staff by skipping voluntary practices in April, but Flores didn’t rule out Jones’ return in 2020, when he’ll be due $11.5 million.“This is a good player who has been productive in this league for a long time,” Flores said.Walton won’t be back. When released, he was halfway through a four-game suspension stemming from three arrests when he was with the Cincinnati Bengals.The Dolphins signed Walton in May, one month after the Bengals released him. Flores declined to say whether the episode would change the way the Dolphins assess a player’s character.“As an organization, character is something we spend a lot of time on,” Flores said. “In this case it didn’t work out with Mark. It’s case by case.”
