With the Miami Dolphins gearing up for their Monday night matchup with the New Orleans Saints, Brian Flores’ team is elevating three practice squad players to the active roster.

The team announced that tackle Roderick Johnson, tackle Adam Pankey, and running back Jordan Scarlett have been designated as COVID-19 fill-ins for the Week 16 contest, as the Dolphins have nine players on the reserve/COVID list.

Johnson and Pankey are being brought up as necessary depth with Robert Jones and Solomon Kindley out this week. Johnson played in 28 games with the Houston Texans over the last two years, starting just six of them. Pankey has been with Miami since 2019, but he’s only had 30 snaps with the team.

Scarlett was a fifth-round pick of the Carolina Panthers back in 2019, but he got just four carries for nine yards in his rookie season and hasn’t had a chance since. He did play a decent number of special teams snaps that year, so he may be filling in on those units this week.
