A nugget from last night's game: Kenyan Drake didn't play but he was out his walking boot moving around OK from my view during pregame workouts. Not sure if that means he'll be ready Week 1 but seems he's getting closer to a return.

Flores: Jay-Z songs intended to 'challenge' Stills

Dolphins coach Brian Flores explained that his motive behind playing eight Jay-Z songs during Tuesday's practice wasn't to troll receiver Kenny Stills but to challenge him to "perform regardless of whatever is going on outside."

With Ryan Fitzpatrick in position to clinch the Dolphins starting QB job Thursday, Josh Rosen gave Brian Flores reason to ponder his decision a bit longer. Rosen piloted a 99-yard touchdown drive in the second half in which he showed off his pocket presence, mobility, arm talent and decision-making. The biggest thing for Rosen is that he's continuing to improve. Flores said he won't rush the young quarterback but every week it looks like Rosen is getting closer to being ready. Flores didn't rule out both QBs playing in Thursday's preseason finale. So the battle continues. Rosen still has a chance for Week 1, but regardless he looks in great shape to takeover in the first half of the season.

On his 14th drive of the preseason, Ryan Fitzpatrick leads the Dolphins to his first touchdown. He did so thanks to big plays to TE Nick O'Leary and Mike Gesicki. It was largely a rough offensive performance for the Dolphins starting offense partially due to offensive line struggles but they finished in the end zone. Fitzpatrick finished 12-of-18, 126 yards, TD and 105.3 rating in two and a half quarters.

A lot of non-football related news has circled the Dolphins in recent weeks but tonight's game vs Jags may be the most important day in their QB battle. Ryan Fitzpatrick has been the frontrunner. Tonight may be Josh Rosen's last chance to take the QB1 job from him before Week 1.

Brian Flores' playlist to start Dolphins practice Tuesday included at least seven consecutive Jay-Z songs, which was eye-opening given Kenny Stills' comments challenging the way the hip-hop mogul went about his partnership with the NFL. Among the songs were, "Show Me What You Got, " "Brooklyn We Go Hard," "Run This Town," and "99 Problems."

Dolphins S Reshad Jones returned to practice Monday and did some individual drills. He said he expects to play in the regular season opener. He's missed the last two weeks due to a right foot injury that he had a boot and cast on.

Brian Flores said he expects Ryan Fitzpatrick to start the third preseason game next week vs. Jaguars. That is typically the closest one to a regular season game.

Wanted to see more out of Josh Rosen in his starting opportunity tonight to surpass Ryan Fitzpatrick. His day was OK. But fortunately for him, Fitz didn't do anything to separate. Battle should still be open as we head into third preseason game.

Preston Williams has been the story of Dolphins training camp, but Sam Eguaveon has been a close No.2. He just forced a fumble there and has consistently looked good. Eguaveon spent the last three years in the CFL and now he's in position to not only make the team but start.
