DAVIE, Florida — Dolphins safety Reshad Jones' four-game suspension has put backup Jimmy Wilson in the spotlight.

Though Jones is still allowed to practice with the team and participate in preseason games, Wilson took most of the snaps with the first unit during Sunday's practice. This is Wilson's third year in defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle's system, but he has spent the majority of his time lined up at either the nickel corner or boundary.

Veteran safety Louis Delmas, who was signed as a free agent in March, is coming off a stellar season in Detroit and will be asked to help Wilson in his transition. Delmas and the rest of the defensive starters are trying to bounce back from a shaky outing in Atlanta on Friday night in the preseason opener against the Falcons.
