Dolphins elevate S Verone McKinley, WR Braylon Sanders for Week 8

Prior their Sunday afternoon battle with the Detroit Lions, the Miami Dolphins made two moves to their roster.

The team announced on Saturday that they’ve elevated undrafted rookies Verone McKinley III and Braylon Sanders from the practice squad.

This is McKinley’s second elevation after being called up last week against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He’ll likely take on a larger role with Brandon Jones going on injured reserve with a torn ACL.

For Sanders, this is his first elevation. He had some bright moments during training camp and preseason, but Miami’s depth at the position kept him off of the active roster during final cuts.
