Dolphins sign DB Justin Bethel, place Clayton Fejedelem on IR

·1 min read

After a few days of making roster moves to get down under the 53-man limit and then filling in their practice squad, the Miami Dolphins made another pair of transactions on Thursday.

According to ESPN’s Marcel Louis-Jacques, the Dolphins have placed safety Clayton Fejedelem on injured reserve, and they’ve filled his spot by signing former New England Patriots defensive back Justin Bethel.

Fejedelem made Miami’s initial roster mainly due to his special teams ability, as he played just 16 snaps on defense last year. Bethel is also a career special teamer and could provide something as a depth cornerback if necessary. He may also bring some insight on the Patriots, as he was released by them this week.

Being placed on injured reserve means that Fejedelem must miss at least four games, so he could return for Week 5.
