No matter how much time he has left as Dolphins coach – three games or three decades – Campbell doesn’t plan on going out as one.

With Monday night’s loss to the Giants putting the playoffs officially out of reach, the Dolphins have nothing left to play for but “The love of the game,” as Campbell put it.

Would running the table to finish 8-8 make a difference? Hard to say – and Campbell didn’t even want to entertain the question Tuesday.

“I know you guys are going to want more of an answer,” Campbell said.

If Campbell is going to go out, he’s going out his way – honestly and without regrets.

That’s despite Grimes being “Completely healthy,” Campbell said.

“They’re playing their keys,” Campbell said.

With Bobby McCain hurt and Grimes and Jamar Taylor struggling, the Dolphins plan to get a long look at rookie Tony Lippett in coverage Sunday, Campbell said.
