The Miami Dolphins were awarded cornerback Dimitri Patterson off waivers from the Cleveland Browns and placed tight end Charles Clay on injured reserve.
Patterson saw action in seven games for the Browns after signing as a free agent over the offseason, but slipped down the depth chart when he missed seven games following a mid-October ankle injury.
Clay suffered a knee injury in the first half of Sunday's victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars.
