### Left tackle Jonathan Martin “is doing a nice job,” Ireland said. “He obviously has a long way to go, just like the rest of the team. There are certainly some things we’ve seen during training camp he’s got to get better at. He’s a tireless worker. He’s very smart. We saw enough of him last year to make this move and not bring Jake Long back." ...

### Ireland praised Lamar Miller but added “I don’t think it’s just going to be Lamar’s position. We’ve got a good running back in Daniel Thomas that’s certainly making some noise.”

He said he believes Miller and Thomas will each have a “breakout season” and “they’re a pretty good one/two punch.”

“Lamar is a tremendous athlete, He’s got great explosion. He’s about 218 pounds. He’s well built for the position, which I like. He runs low to the ground. He’s got very good instincts. He can stop on a dime. I just felt like going into the season, we had to get this guy going. He can catch it out of the backfield. He can block. He was one of our best pass protectors last year.... You give him a crease, he’s going to get through it.

"And Daniel also has got some one-cut quickness and downhill attitude about him. He can catch and block.” ..

### Philbin said starters will play at least one quarter Saturday at Houston, then would play more in the Dolphins’ fourth preseason game against Tampa.

### The Dolphins made ample and generally successful use of a formation with an empty backfield and five players lined up as receivers: Mike Wallace, Brian Hartline, running back Lamar Miller, tight end Dustin Keller and either receiver Brandon Gibson or tight end/fullback Charles Clay.

“Ryan can see the field a lot better when all of us are out there spreading it out for him,” Wallace said. “He can just take his pick.”

The Dolphins even practiced with that grouping in goal line situations. ...

Good, that means he's making his reads and not locking onto a WR/TE.
