Dolphins Take First Preseason Game, Trill Suffers Injury Late

Dolphins Take First Preseason Game, Trill Suffers Injury Late

Skylar Thompson and Jason Sanders impressed in Miami's preseason win against Tampa Bay.

Jose Borregales missed a 49-yard field goal in the Dolphins' 26-24 preseason opener.

Trill Williams injured his knee while tackling Deven Thompkins for 5 yards.

Williams' left leg appeared to get caught in Thompkins' tackle. He fell and limped off the field.

The Dolphins can only hope Wilson's scary-looking knee injury turns out to be less serious.

The Dolphins rested almost 20 players, including Tua Tagovailoa, Tyreek Hill, and Terron Armstead.

Thompson completed 20 of 28 throws for 218 yards and a touchdown to Lynn Bowden Jr. Second-half scramble: 21 yards.

Sanders, who excels in even-numbered years and struggles in odd-numbered seasons, kicked 33, 52, 23, and 53-yard field goals.

Sam Eguavoen returned Kyle Trask's fumble 33 yards for the other Dolphins touchdown.

The Buccaneers ruled out 29 players 90 minutes before start, including quarterback Tom Brady.

Blaine Gabbert and Trask guided the Bucs to 389 yards against the Dolphins' 242.

The Dolphins offence had 242 yards and three third-down sacks.

Two second-quarter touchdowns gave the Dolphins a 23-14 lead after trailing 14-6.

First, Bowden scored after Elijah Campbell snatched Trask's pass from a Tampa Bay receiver.

Trent Sherfield's 33-yard reception in the second quarter was the Dolphins' largest gain on offence.

The Dolphins' preseason continues next Saturday at 7 p.m. ET against the Raiders.
