The Philadelphia Eagles and the Miami Dolphins were forced to cancel Thursday’s scheduled joint practice, and according to reports, it’s because a stomach bug has made its way through the Dolphins’ team and staff.

In a report from ProFootballTalk, the practice was axed out of an “abundance of caution” after members of the Dolphins reportedly caught a “stomach bug” that had them “sick and vomiting overnight.”

The Dolphins will be meeting virtually in hopes that keeping everyone distanced will keep the illness from spreading any further. The Eagles will practice on their own.

A game is scheduled between the two teams on Saturday and the plan is for that game to proceed as scheduled, although further spread of the stomach issues could lead to a reconsideration. [via ProFootballTalk]

The Dolphins and Eagles are set to play their third and final preseason game on Saturday, August 27, at 7 p.m.

The Dolphins, in the first year under new head coach Mike McDaniel, will open their 2022 season against the New England Patriots on Sunday, September 11. As for Jalen Hurts and the Philadelphia Eagles, they kick their 2022 season off against the Detroit Lions.

Both the Eagles and the Dolphins find themselves in similar positions this year as they both have young quarterbacks facing prove-it years, as both teams have expectations of competing for a playoff berth.
