Hard Rock Stadium and Dolphins' Davie facility declared safe, sound after Irma

Hard Rock Stadium and Dolphins' Davie facility declared safe, sound after Irma

The Dolphins likely won't play their first home game of the season at Hard Rock Stadium until October 8, as the opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers was moved to the team's Week 11 bye. "We lost landscaping and a section of roof panels in 1 corner. Aesthetic in nature and easy to fix".

Garfinkel also said the team's practice facility in Davie is in good condition and will be available when the team returns from California on Monday.

The Dolphins are now in Southern California, where they are practicing at Oxnard. He'll fly the families back, at his expense, when it's deemed safe. It may be hard to concentrate after Hurricane Irma, but their players should be glad to get back to playing football. Other players who had already left the state in advance of Irma are also arriving in Los Angeles.

The Saints-Dolphins game, with Miami designated as the home team, is the second of four scheduled games in London this season.

President Donald Trump is calling new United Nations sanctions on North Korea "just another very small step". What the UN's sanctions resolution has made crystal clear is the limits of putting pressure on North Korea.

Hard Rock Stadium sustained no structural damage during Hurricane Irma over the weekend and is ready to host the upcoming Dolphins and University of Miami home games. "It will be played in London".

Ross had more than $500 million of renovation work completed during the offseason and the stadium was said to have been built to withstand a category 4 hurricane. The Chargers are playing their first home game in the tiny StubHub Center.

If the training facility is damaged, the Dolphins would practice in West Virginia in preparation for their September 24 game at the New York Jets.
