It's Just Another Game For Alonso [6:10 PM]
MiamiDolphins.com reports: '“He has been kind of our bell cow,” Head Coach Adam Gase said. “He has done a great job as far as chasing the ball all over the field. He’s borderline reckless with his body. You talk about a guy that just sells out every play; he’s the poster child for that for us. The good thing last week was we did a better job as far as our run-fit goes.
