Coach Joe Philbin is not in favor of getting players on the field solely for experience if the Dolphins are eliminated from playoff contention.
"Playing time has to be earned," Philbin said. "They earn it with what they do on the practice field. It's not fair to put someone into a game who doesn't deserve it." Even with impending free agent Reggie Bush's Miami future in doubt, we wouldn't expect rookie Lamar Miller to see significant action before the Week 17 finale. Philbin does believe Miller is "going to be a good football player in this league."
