Tropical Storm Isaac forces NFL teams to react

Tropical Storm Isaac is forcing some adjustments by Florida's NFL teams.

Coach Joe Philbin held an indoor practice Saturday, a day after his Miami Dolphins played in the rain in Miami on Friday night and lost, 23-6, to the Atlanta Falcons.

"We're just making sure that everybody is safe and we can get the work done that we need to get done at the appropriate time when it is relevant," Philbin said, according to ESPN.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers tweeted late Sunday: "The Bucs won't be practicing on Monday due to the inclement weather caused by Tropical Storm Isaac. The team leaves for DC on Tuesday."

The New Orleans Saints canceled practice Monday due to the storm.

The storm also forced the Republican Party to postpone parts of its convention this week, being held in Tampa.

The latest National Weather Service forecast has Isaac coming ashore on the Mississippi Gulf Coast just east of Louisiana on Tuesday night or Wednesday morning with maximum sustained winds of about 100 mph.

Each updated forecast has had the storm landing farther west than the previous one.
