The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported Tuesday that Long returned to practice, but his lower back injury remains an issue that could keep him out of Saturday game's against the New England Patriots. John Jerry replaced Long in the Dolphins' starting lineup in last Sunday's 30-23 victory over the Buffalo Bills.
Misi, Miami's starting strong-side linebacker, sat out the game in Buffalo with a left shoulder injury that he sustained against the Philadelphia Eagles on Dec. 11. He started nine games this year and had 31 tackles and one sack.
