The Dolphins were forced to have second thoughts about Larry Johnson.
Less than a week after cutting L.J., the team brought him back on Thursday following an injury to rookie running back Daniel Thomas at Wednesday’s practice. The team signed Johnson and waived guard Ray Feinga to make room.
Jeff Darlington of the Miami Herald reports that Thomas tweaked his hamstring at practice.
The Dolphins got grief for signing Johnson, but this move shows why it made sense to bring a veteran into camp. They needed a player they could sign “off the street” that would be ready if something went wrong with the rookie or Reggie Bush.
It’s been a discouraging start to Thomas’ career.
