Report: Dolphins to release LB Darius Hodge with injury designation

·1 min read

The Miami Dolphins are continuing to trim down their roster in an effort to have 53 players by the NFL’s deadline at 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday.

According to the Miami Herald’s Barry Jackson, the Dolphins are releasing linebacker Darius Hodge. Hodge was claimed off of waivers by Miami in 2021 after being released by the Cincinnati Bengals, but he never played in a regular season game for the team.

EDIT: The team announced that Hodge’s release is with an injury designation, meaning if he passes through waivers, he’d revert back to Miami’s injured reserve.

Hodge becomes the second linebacker released by the Dolphins to start the roster cuts, as they’ve also moved on from Calvin Munson.
