As the Dolphins prepare to close their 2014 season against the Jets this Sunday, the team has tweaked its 53-man roster, calling on replacements at two spots. According to the team (Twitter links), offensive lineman Nate Garner has been placed on the reserve/non-football injury list, while cornerback Jamar Taylor has been put on injured reserve. Center Sam Brenner and defensive tackle Deandre Coleman will take their spots, having been promoted from the practice squad.
Brenner, who played seven games for the Dolphins last season, had spent the entire 2014 campaign on the team’s practice squad. Coleman, who started the season with the Jaguars’ practice squad, has been with Miami – either on the team’s active roster or taxi squad – since late September.
The series of transactions leaves the Dolphins with three openings on their practice squad, so we’ll see if more moves are coming later this week.
