Draft Scout Mike Wallace News
08/14/14 - WR Mike Wallace has been catching more passes from the JUGS machine of late than quarterback Ryan Tannehill as he recovers from a hamstring injury.
Wallace said he is "totally comfortable" with the offense, while acknowledging the system is still being installed with less than a month before the regular-season opener. He does expect to make his preseason debut Saturday and begin adjusting to the speed of live game action and working on his timing with Tannehill.
"Not so much as the plays, just the rapid fire of the offense you need to go, so you can have your endurance up," Wallace said of the benefits to getting into a preseason game. "Just two days off in this offense will have you gassed. You have to keep going and keep building your endurance every single day. So I definitely need to go out there and get some plays in."
