John Jerry earns call-up to Dolphins starting line

by: Omar Kelly December 14th, 2011 | 4:06 PM


Every day after practice John Jerry spends an extra 15-30 minutes working on his footwork and technique with Tony Sparano Jr.


The Dolphins have John Jerry working with the first team preparing for the Bills..

That’s been Jerry’s routine for the past month or so with the Miami Dolphins. When most players are hitting the showers or starting up their game of dominoes Jerry’s out on the field working on his footwork and get-off with the son of former head coach Tony Sparano, who happens to be Miami’s quality control coach.

The extra work has apparently paid off because Jerry has excelled when called on to replace Vernon Carey at right guard.

The team’s 2010 third-round pick, who started 10 games last season on a bad line, graded out well in the 34-14 win over Oakland, and when he replaced an injured Carey against the Eagles in the third quarter the offensive line created running lanes for Reggie Bush, who produced his third 100-yard rushing performance of the season.

Now, with Jake Long sidelined by a back injury he suffered against Oakland, the Dolphins have Jerry working as the team’s first-team left tackle.

No need to panic for two reasons. Jerry has improved, and it’s JUST PRACTICE.

Long, quarterback Matt Moore and linebacker Koa Misi all sat out Wednesday’s practice, and their status for Sunday’s game against Buffalo is questionable.



Rooting for Jerry....This is a bonus if this guy turns it around

Would be great if he could turn into the right tackle of the future. One less issue to solve in the offseason.

I just hope Jake is ok and ready to start on Sunday. Jerry did a good job at RG, I think the Dolphins would be smart to put him back at RG and let Carey sit out or battle with Colombo for the RT position.

Thought Jerry was a tackle in college so that is why I was hoping he can become that in the pros. I just don't want to see Miami have to spend a high draft pick or a lot of FA dollars to fill the upcoming void.

He was a tackle in college. Tackles are more valuable than guards.
