DAVIE, Fla. (AP) -Miami Dolphins assistant coach Jim Reid is home recovering from surgery and an undisclosed illness.
Reid, who last worked Sept. 24, left the hospital about a week ago, coach Tony Sparano said Thursday.
``We've just got our fingers crossed every day,'' Sparano said. ``He's doing good. He's doing much better.''
Sparano said he talks by phone several times a week with Reid, who is Miami's outside linebackers coach.
``It's hard to keep him still. He's got a lot of energy,'' Sparano said. ``He's busy at work at home doing his stuff. It keeps him involved.''
Defensive coordinator Paul Pasqualoni has been filling in for Reid.
