Dolphins make a number of roster moves prior to Steelers game

Ahead of their Sunday night showdown with the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Miami Dolphins made a number of moves to add players to their active roster.

First, Miami signed offensive tackle Brandon Shell from their practice squad. Shell got playing time at left tackle when Terron Armstead went out with his toe injury, and then flipped to the right side last week.

He might get an opportunity if Armstead or right tackle Austin Jackson can’t go.

In addition, the Dolphins have also elevated safety Verone McKinley and defensive lineman Ben Stille for the contest. Neither has had a chance to play in the regular season, but with all of the injuries on the defensive side of the ball, we could see the undrafted rookies get a shot.
