Stomach bug causes Dolphins to cancel joint practice with Eagles

The Miami Dolphins and Philadelphia Eagles canceled Thursday’s joint practice due to a non-COVID-related illness.

NFL Network Insider Mike Garafolo reported that the Dolphins are dealing with a stomach bug, per sources informed of the situation, with multiple players sick and vomiting overnight.

Garafolo added that while some players thought it could have been food poisoning, the Dolphins staff cross-checked what players had eaten and didn’t find a common thread, leading the club to believe it was a bug.

At this point, there is no concern about Saturday’s preseason game between the Dolphins and Eagles in Miami.

To help stop the bug from spreading, the Dolphins canceled practice and will meet virtually Thursday.

The Eagles will practice on their own in advance of Saturday’s preseason finale.
