Dansby has monster game for Dolphins

Sunday, Karlos Dansby played like the linebacker the Miami Dolphins thought they were getting when they signed him to a big contract in the 2010 offseason.

Dansby recorded 10 tackles, a sack and an interception in Miami’s 20-9 victory over the Washington Redskins to follow up on his 11-tackle game last week against the Kansas City Chiefs.

“Karlos was brought here to make plays like he made in this game,” Dolphins coach Tony Sparano told the media Monday.

Dansby came into the offseason well over his playing weight, something he attributed to the extended offseason. But he’s worked hard all season to get back into shape.

Sparano said Dansby has weighed “considerably less” over the last few weeks than his normal playing weight, which has allowed him to do more.

“He’s playing faster, he’s playing more explosive,” Sparano said.
