Dolphins promote one to active lineup, elevate another for Week 11
The Miami Dolphins have actually made a handful of roster moves this week to assist best align the group for the upcoming contest against the Denver Broncos– although at least among the Dolphins’ lineup moves has a bigger level of permanence to it.
The Dolphins revealed the other day that they have signed large receiver Antonio Callaway to their active roster which they have actually also promoted interior defensive lineman Benito Jones off of the practice team for this week to function as an active gamer.
The news of Jones elevation for another week off the practice team does not seem to bode well for Dolphins standout defensive lineman Christian Wilkins; who has remained in the NFL’s COVID-19 protocol for a week after getting flagged last Thursday and being charged with separating from the remainder of the group. We have yet to hear a main upgrade on Wilkins’ status, however the roster transfer to promote Jones for the week seems to show the Dolphins themselves prepare for lacking Wilkins this weekend.
As for Callaway, this is the next step in Miami’s sluggish and stable go back to action for the pass receiver. Callaway has lots of physical gifts– but a struggling history off the field. When Miami initially signed him to the practice team, it was known he would miss out on about half the season serving a suspension. The Dolphins have actually constantly seemed unfazed with any potential danger here and now take the chance to work him onto the active lineup as a member of the 53-man roster in the middle of some of the other losses the Dolphins’ pass receiver room has actually sustained so far this season.
In between the injury of Preston Williams, the opt-outs of Allen Hurns and Albert Wilson and the trade of Isaiah Ford, Miami’s receiver space has actually been turned nearly upside down in just 6 months. Now we will wait to see if Callaway still has it in him to make the most of this new opportunity with the Dolphins.
