The Miami Dolphins and their fans have every reason to be excited going in to the 2015 NFL season.

Exciting 2015 Ahead

The Dolphins have boosted their team on both sides of the ball with the additions of Kenny Stills, Jordan Cameron and Ndamukong Suh to name a few. And when combined with all of their AFC East rivals struggling in the off-season, 2015 is shaping up very nicely for Miami.

And now the Dolphins have been handed another bonus, with the news that one rookie could make a quick return after an operation.

Parker's Back

According to a report from Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald, DeVante Parker set foot on the Dolphins' practice facility today for the first time since having to undergo surgery on his foot in June.

What is even better news for Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin is the possibility for Parker to be healthy for the start of the regular season.

“I’m pretty anxious to get out there,” Parker said. “But you can’t do anything but be patient and wait until the time is right.”

Reps Needed

And that depends largely on how quickly he can back to speed. According to Philbin however, at this point in Parker’s rehab it seems it is more a matter of conditioning and sharpness than concern about a relapse.

“We’ve got to get him some reps,” Philbin said. “Get him used to dipping in and out of the huddle, get the right split, get the right alignment, do the right adjustment versus press and cloud or off [coverage]. Understand where he fits in in the progression. All of those things that reps will provide. We’ll try to ramp that up as soon as we can.”

With an offense now containing Ryan Tannehill, Lamar Miller, Kenny Stills, Jarvis Landry, Greg Jenning and Jordan Cameron – the Dolphins should have a lot of joy on offense this year.
