Joe Philbin took Dolphins to “Straight Outta Compton”

By David Kenyon

The Miami Dolphins are preparing to face the Carolina Panthers on Saturday night, but head coach Joe Philbin wanted to make sure the ‘Phins had a little extra bonding time.

According to Armando Salguero of The Miami Herald, Philbin cancelled the walk-through portion of Thursday’s practice in favor of taking the team to a current box-office hit.

Hopefully that means the Dolphins are ready for their second preseason outing, not that a win or loss really matters anyway.

Regardless, players likely appreciated the move, especially after what must’ve been a brutal practice on Wednesday. Miami safety Louis Delmas tore the ACL in his right knee, and the Panthers watched star receiver Kelvin Benjamin sustain the same season-ending injury.

The teams will square off on Saturday at 7 p.m. ET, and both teams are looking to head Straight Outta Bank of America Stadium with their rosters intact.
