Sparano on how Losman played

Dolphins head coach Tony Sparano had to turn to J.P. Losman at quarterback after starter Matt Moore left Sunday’s game with a reported mild concussion. Here was his review of Losman’s performance.

“J.P. did a good job in the game yesterday,” Sparano said. “Given the circumstances J.P came into the game and I wouldn’t say we had to throw it. It was still a two score game somewhere in and around there. But obviously had to move the football. There was some things that were happening on that ground that were giving us some chunk plays.

“But J.P. came in right away and made a big third down conversion on the throw to (Anthony) Fasano I believe it was. Threw an excellent ball to (Anthony) Fasano down the middle, a good ball to (Brian) Hartline on the sideline and threw another good ball to (Anthony) Fasano in the red area there that we just didn’t finish.

“I thought he did some pretty good things. For his first time out there really in quite a while there’s going to be some things he’s going to be able to learn from. He’ll see the film I’m sure today at some point. But I was pleased with what he did when he went into the game in those circumstances.”

Losman was 6-10 passing for 60 yards. He was sacked five times.
