Report: Marshall returns to practice with Dolphins after hip surgery

Brandon Marshall was able to practice with the Miami Dolphins on Wednesday, three weeks after it was revealed the wide receiver had hip surgery, Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported via Twitter.

Marshall was paired with Greg Camarillo as the Dolphins' starting receivers, according to Kelly.

Last month, Marshall and Dolphins coach Tony Sparano wouldn't disclose the nature of the receiver's surgery. However, a source with knowledge of the situation confirmed to senior writer Steve Wyche that Marshall had a "minor" hip procedure and should be healthy in plenty of time for training camp in July.

With Marshall working out Wednesday, that appears to be the case.

Marshall isn't a stranger to hip trouble. He had hip surgery before the 2009 season and has said he played with a hip tear in 2008.

The Dolphins acquired Marshall from the Denver Broncos in April in exchange for two second-round draft picks, then quickly got the receiver to agree on a four-year contract extension that could be worth as much as to $50 million. Marshall had 101 catches for 1,120 yards last season for the Broncos, including an NFL-record 21 catches for 200 yards during a December game against the Indianapolis Colts. The four-year pro has been selected to two Pro Bowls.

The Dolphins have three organized team activities remaining, then will take a break before training camp.
