Dolphins make two roster moves before game vs. Browns

The Miami Dolphins’ roster has been fluid through the first half of the 2022 season due to injuries at key positions and impact players.

On Saturday, that trend continued, as Miami signed defensive back Verone McKinley III to their active roster from their practice squad. The team also elevated offensive tackle Kion Smith for the second time in as many weeks.

McKinley has already been elevated twice this season, so the only way he could play is through an active roster spot. He’ll continue to get opportunities at safety along with Eric Rowe, Clayton Fejedelem and Elijah Campbell.

He will be able to help ease the loss of Brandon Jones, who went down with a torn ACL early in the season.

Smith didn’t get any reps last week, as Terron Armstead and Brandon Shell were healthy and on the field for every offensive snap. His elevation is likely a precaution.
