The Dolphins were in the news early on Labor Day. LT Austin Jackson and TE Adam Shaheen were placed on the Covid-19/reserve list this morning. The Dolphins also made a number of adjustments to the practice squad.
Practice Squad Moves
WR Isaiah Ford was signed to the Dolphins practice squad. After his release last week, it seemed like it was only a matter of time until he was back in aqua and orange. Ford is familiar with the Dolphins organization having spent most of his career in South Florida. He will be a good piece for Miami to keep around.
Carl Tucker joined the practice squad this morning as well. He spent the entire offseason with Miami but was released last week during the final wave of cuts. In a year where players can be lost due to COVID, the Dolphins want players who have spent time with the team.
Tino Ellis was released from the practice to make room for these moves.
CB Jamal Perry was activated to the roster. He is available to play as a replacement, per Barry Jackson.
Official Practice Squad
The Dolphins released their complete practice squad roster this morning. Practice Squads are normally made up of 16 players. In Miami’s case, they are able to keep 17. With IPP Pathway player Durval Queiroz Neto, Miami gets an extra player exemption.
Out of 17 players, 13 were a part of the Dolphins preseason roster.
It would make sense that the Dolphins want to keep familiar faces around during a season in which COVID-19 could disrupt some plans. As a matter of fact, the Dolphins are dealing with COVID-19 issues just 6 days before their season opener.
Due to the NFL’s COVID-19 policies for unvaccinated players, Shaheen will be unable to play in Sunday’s game in New England. Per NFL and NFLPA policy, Shaheen will miss at least 10 days.
With Shaheen missing time, it opens the door for rookie TE Hunter Long.
Although it is unknown whether Jackson is vaccinated, he may still be available for Sunday’s game, indicating he is.
If Jackson is unable to play, recently traded for OT Greg Little could get the start at LT. Brian Flores said they will try multiple combinations on the OL this week in practice before deciding the starting OL for Sunday’s game. Although Jackson can still play, the Dolphins will prepare as if he won’t be available.
