MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – Dolphins offensive lineman Terron Armstead returned to practice on Wednesday.

He’s listed on the Dolphins injury report as limited with injuries to his back, ankle, and knee.

The tackle wore the non-contact red jersey at practice.

Before practice, Armstead had an adventure getting to work.

Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa shared that Armstead’s car broke down on the side of the road near the team’s facility.

Tagovailoa said, “I don’t know if anyone was driving here early in the morning, but Terron had his car broken down. I think I’m a bad teammate because I passed him and I didn’t come back. I wasn’t going to pull to the shoulder and just reverse, ‘Yo Terron, I’m coming to get you.’”

Tagovailoa said he saw Armstead but wasn’t sure it was him.

Once he got to the team’s facility, Tagovailoa shared that Armstead was having car issues, but it was too late to go back and get him.
