Ahead of their Week 7 matchup with the Atlanta Falcons, the Miami Dolphins made a few moves on Saturday that might be telling for the game.

Brian Flores’ team promoted wide receiver Isaiah Ford to the active roster. He’s been elevated the last couple of games due to injuries to DeVante Parker, Will Fuller, and Preston Williams. With Parker and Fuller being questionable, and Fuller being on the injured reserve, this may point to one of them missing more time than expected.

To make room for Ford, the Dolphins waived third-string quarterback Reid Sinnett. The former San Diego Torero was originally on Miami’s practice squad but was signed to the active roster when Tua Tagovailoa went down with his injury. Now that the starter is back, the Dolphins will probably try to put Sinnett back on the practice squad if he goes unclaimed.

Miami also elevated center Cameron Tom from the practice squad. This is Tom’s third NFL season but first with the Dolphins, and he has yet to play in a game in 2021. With Michael Deiter on injured reserve and Greg Mancz questionable with a groin injury, it’s likely that Tom will serve as a depth player along with Austin Reiter if Mancz struggles.
