WR Brian Hartline was absent from the Miami Dolphins mandatory minicamp last month and it’s now being revealed why. Hartline is recovering from an appendectomy. The Dolphins receiver told WQAM radio on Saturday that he fully expects to be ready for the start of training camp later this month.
It’s going better now. It’s been a little bumpy the past couple of months but I’m on the right path now,” said Hartline. “I’ve got a little bit of stuff to make up but again, I’ve got a full month. That’s plenty of time. Real life happens sometimes and that’s just what it is.”
Hartline was the second leading receiver for the Dolphins last year in yardage, recording 35 receptions for 549 yards and one score. He led the Dolphins in average yards per catch with a 15.7 average.
