 DAVIE, Fla. (AP) -Miami Dolphins coach Cam Cameron might want to brace for another round of boos: Top draft pick Ted Ginn says he doesn't know whether he'll be healthy for the start of training camp.
Ginn paid a visit to the Dolphins' complex Sunday and said his sprained left foot will be in a boot for about a month. Rehabilitation will follow, and Ginn said there's no guarantee he'll be ready to practice when camp begins in three months.
``It's whatever the training staff says,'' the speedy Ohio State receiver-returner said. ``I hope that I'm going to be able to be there day one.''
Ginn was hurt in the BCS national championship game Jan. 8 after returning the opening kickoff for a touchdown. Fans jeered Cameron at the team's draft party for bypassing Notre Dame quarterback Brady Quinn in the first round Saturday and picking Ginn instead.
Ginn will miss mini-camp May 4-6, but Cameron said the Dolphins are comfortable with the rookie's recovery from the injury.
``We saw him work out,'' Cameron said. ``I watched him run a 4.4 and work out pretty strong at Ohio State. The medical reports we get are positive.''
General manager Randy Mueller said Ginn's injury isn't a long-term concern.
``We think he's a month or so out,'' Mueller said. ``We're obviously going to treat him with kid gloves a little bit to get him right, but we don't think there's any long-term effects, and we think he'll be fine.''
Ginn's father, Ted Sr., a high school football coach in Ohio, said his son should be fine by the start of training camp.
In addition to Ginn, the Dolphins selected Brigham Young quarterback John Beck, Hawaii center Samson Satele and Florida State running back Lorenzo Booker on Saturday. Selections on Sunday were Utah defensive tackle Paul Soliai in the fourth round and Hawaii fullback Reagan Mauia in the sixth round.
Ginn hurt his foot during an end zone celebration after he returned the opening kickoff 93 yards for a score in the BCS title game against Florida. He said he's now 85 percent and would be able to play in a game if necessary.
``I just have the ability to go out there and work through anything, any pain,'' he said. ``I have done workouts on it. I have practiced on it for weeks.''
Ginn said he doesn't regret the end zone celebration, which sidelined him for the rest of Ohio State's 41-14 loss.
``Going back doesn't do anything but give you bad memories,'' he said. ``It was the national championship. Guys have never been there before. We were just excited. It was nobody's fault.''
