Pennington cleared to throw passes
It will be interesting to see how much strength Pennington has lost, if any, in his throwing shoulder. He seems to keep coming back from injuries to that arm.
Chad Pennington (shoulder) has been cleared to throw passes at Dolphins Organized Team Activities.
This is his first step in attempting to retake the backup job from Tyler Thigpen. Pennington, coming off his third throwing-arm surgery, had only been a spectator to this point in the offseason. Chad Henne remains locked in as the starter, while 2009 second-round pick Pat White is fourth string.
