DAVIE — There are times in practice when Dolphins cornerback Nolan Carroll goes out of his way to speak to fellow secondary member Reshad Jones.
It serves as rehearsal for when the two need to communicate during games. After a miscommunication helped secure last year's 23-13 loss to the Houston Texas, they hope to avoid a repeat by being on the same page. The Dolphins open the season against the Texans on Sunday with Carroll and Jones expected to see significant action.
"For some reason, we just didn't communicate [last year]," Carroll said. "We're on the same page, Reshad and I and [safety Chris Clemons]. We've all been communicating at OTAs. We all know what we're doing a year later."
