He should be well rested. So, is he the tackling machine that Salguero says he is or one of the worst run defenders that PFF said he was in 2016?
Dolphins MLB Rey Maualuga (hamstring) expects to make his season debut against the Titans in Week 5. Maualuga has been slow to recover from a hamstring injury but has practiced all week and expects to finally make his Dolphins debut in Week 5. He earned PFF's No. 55 grade out of 59 qualifiers at inside linebacker last year and was one of the league's worst run defenders.
