The Giants placed cornerback Michael Coe on season-ending injured reserve earlier this month, but his season hasn’t ended.

Coe was released off of injured reserve by the Giants on Monday and his season will continue in Miami. The Dolphins announced Wednesday that they have signed Coe to their 53-man roster. They opened up a spot on Tuesday by releasing guard Ryan Durand.

Coe was originally a fifth-round choice of the Colts in 2007 and played six games for them as a rookie. He played for the Jaguars in 2009 and 2010 before moving on to the Giants later in the 2010 season. He played 21 games overall for the Giants and started once this season before moving back into a reserve and special teams role before his injury.

He’ll likely be filling the same role in Miami. Sean Smith and Nolan Carroll start on the corners for the Dolphins, who host the Patriots this Sunday, and their depth at the position took a hit earlier in the year when Richard Marshall was placed on injured reserve.
