Dolphins WR Brian Hartline Not Showing Any Rust

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brian Hartline missed all but one training camp practice, but that hasn't prevented him from playing well in the regular season. He caught nine passes for 111 yards in the team's 35-13 win over the Oakland Raiders in Week 2.

"I told him, I said, ‘You're going to screw everything up for us because everybody is going to miss minicamp, OTAs and preseason and think they can play. He's kind of a coach killer in some ways because of what he was able to do," Dolphins offensive coordinator Mike Sherman said.

The fourth-year player out of Ohio State caught 35 passes for 549 yards and one touchdown last season. He's on pace to surpass those numbers by a wide margin in 2012, as he has 12 catches for 161 yards through two games.

The Dolphins face the New York Jets in Week 3.
