The Dolphins enter the season with the lowest over/under of any team at 4.5 wins, so a poor season could force the team's hand to look at another quarterback of the future, potentially Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa.

Miami coach Brian Flores said the team's focus is on Caldwell's health and providing him support.

Caldwell, 64, joined the Dolphins' staff in February.

A well respected and experienced member of the National Football League coaching fraternity, Caldwell has helped provide a positive influence on both Peyton Manning, Joe Flacco and Matthew Stafford throughout his tenure with the Colts, Ravens and Lions, respectively.

Djokovic reflects on ´unreal´ Wimbledon final victory
The two iconic players have reached a fifth set at Wimbledon , with Djokovic and Federer alternating the first four sets. The last player to win a Grand Slam aged under 30 was Andy Murray, who won the 2016 Wimbledon title aged 29.

Jim Caldwell will take a step back in his role with the Miami Dolphins as he deals with an undisclosed health problem, the team announced on Saturday.

The Dolphins in February hired Caldwell, an experienced, accomplished offensive mind and two-time National Football League head coach, shortly after Flores took over as head coach.

Caldwell had a 62-50 record as a head coach with Indianapolis (2009-11) and Detroit (2014-17). He was expected to help in the development of second-year quarterback Josh Rosen, who is rebooting his career after a shaky rookie 2018 season with the Arizona Cardinals.

Now, Caldwell has medical concerns and hopefully, the longtime coach can get back to being one-hundred percent and get back to coaching on the sideline.
