In preparation for their Week 17 matchup with the Tennessee Titans at Nissan Stadium, the Miami Dolphins announced eight roster moves on Saturday afternoon.

The Dolphins activated safety Adam Butler and safety Brandon Jones off the reserve/COVID list. They have yet to clear COVID protocols, but they needed to be removed from the list by 4 p.m. if they wanted a shot to play on Sunday.

Miami also placed cornerback Noah Igbinoghene and safety Sheldrick Redwine on the COVID list. They will miss this game, but they have been either inactive or playing a very small role in most games this season, so they won’t be much of a loss.

Linebacker Brennan Scarlett was removed from injured reserve. Scarlett had played 21% of available defensive snaps before suffering a knee injury in the first half of the Week 11 battle against the Jets.

Finally, the Dolphins elevated wide receiver Kirk Merritt and center Cameron Tom as COVID-19 replacements from the practice squad, and defensive back Chris Milton as a standard practice squad elevation.

The Dolphins kick off against the Titans on Sunday at 1 p.m.
