News Roundup (6/14)

Here's a collection of the news that's been going on recently.

* For starters, QB Daunte Culpepper injured his left (non-throwing) hand on Wednesday when he was involved in a two-car crash. Fortunately, the injury was nothing more than a cut, and Culpepper has said he is fine. X-rays on the hand were negative. The injury shouldn't have any effect on his eventual trade or release,
other than perhaps slowing down the process.

* T Joe Toledo underwent surgery on Wednesday to repair a fractured metatarsal in his right foot. He hopes to be ready by training camp. In other injury news, LB Joey Porter sat out his second straight practice on Wednesday due to back spasms. The move is just a precautionary one; at this point, there's no reason to senselessly endanger one of the best players on the team. DE Jason Taylor and FB Cory Schlesinger didn't attend Wednesday's voluntary workout because they had family commitments.

* The team has two more weeks of conditioning before breaking for vacation.

* Despite previous reports that suggested the possibility, the Dolphins will not practice with the Tennessee Titans, or any other team, during training camp.
