On Saturday, the team tweeted out a message of support to any at risk of Irma's wrath: "To the entire state of Florida, stay safe".

Miami Dolphins players are getting lots of help - from owner Steve Ross and the Dallas Cowboys - in their move to Southern California because of Hurricane Irma to prepare for next Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Chargers.

The Dolphins have already had Sunday's scheduled season opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers postponed due to the hurricane, making the Chargers game their season opener.

The Jaguars will also be going through some travel headaches.


While in California, the Dolphins will be able to hold practices at the Cowboys' training facility in Oxnard, according to ESPN's Joe Schad. The stadium is built to withstand Category 4 winds, and Miami Gardens is now not projected to experience anything close to that.

"A lot these guys have a lot on their plate - moving their families - and you've got people coming in, and your house and your cars", said newly-signed quarterback Dolphins quarterback Jay Cutler, per ESPN.

Because of Irma, the Dolphins told players Wednesday to take the rest of this week off. This is the latest bye week I ever had.
