Mike Wallace is back to doing his thing, running fly patterns for the Miami Dolphins.

The Miami Dolphins' $60 million wide receiver returned to practice today after missing almost two weeks with a groin injury and caught a long touchdown pass in single coverage against cornerback Nolan Carroll.

Wallace is hoping to play Friday night against the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to the Associated Press.

It didn't take long for Wallace to show his body was feeling right. He beat Nolan Carroll for a 40-yard touchdown reception during practice.

"Finally got one," Wallace told reporters. "It's just the start. I plan on catching a lot of those. It's just a matter of time. Be patient. It's going to happen."

The Dolphins have made a significant investment in Wallace, and need to get plenty of mileage out of him this season as he's their prize offseason acquisition.
