The Dolphins set their initial 53-man roster on Saturday, although it won’t be long before it starts to change.

Guard Ted Larsen is expected to go on injured reserve on Sunday, which is the first day teams can put players on the list if they want to have them return later in the year. Larsen suffered a biceps injury this summer.

Two players went on the season-ending injured reserve list Saturday. Linebacker Raekwon McMillan and cornerback Tony Lippett are the unlucky duo while wide receiver Rashawn Scott will stay on the PUP list into the regular season. Linebackers Neville Hewitt and Brandon Watts were both waived/injured and can revert to injured reserve if they go unclaimed.

The Dolphins released tackle Sam Young and defensive end Nick Williams. As previously reported, they waived punter Matt Darr. They also waived long snapper Winston Chapman, quarterback Brandon Doughty, tight end Thomas Duarte, guard Isame Faciane, wide receiver Trey Griffey, safety A.J. Hendy, tackle Sean Hickey, cornerback Larry Hope, running back Storm Johnson, linebacker Deon Lacey, wide receiver Rashad Lawrence, wide receiver Malcolm Lewis, cornerback Jordan Lucas, defensive end Cameron Malveaux, defensive end Praise Martin-Oguike, wide receiver Mitch Mathews, wide receiver Drew Morgan, defensive tackle Lawrence Okoye, tight end Chris Pantale, cornerback Lafayette Pitts, defensive end Joby Saint Fleur, running back De'Veon Smith, wide receiver Damore'ea Stringfellow, linebacker Junior Sylvestre, defensive end Julius Warmsley and tackle Avery Young.

  1. Miami will have a sneaky good season if the OL can stay healthy and Cutler plays well. Flying under the radar is fine by me and I’m sure by them also.

  2. Who will be on the 10 man practice squad, and what trades are coming? Tomorrow should answer some questions. Bill

    It means that you are so optimistic at the disaster which is Miami that you actually think they are going to be good. I thought it was obvious

  6. Saying sneaky good is optimistic, but for you to say disaster it is clearly obvious that you believe the Patriots are the only team in the NFL that is actually going to be good. That simply demonstrates your pea size brain and mentality.
    Yes I do believe what I typed, they will be a good team this season if the OL stays healthy and Cutler performs well. Did I say great team??? I said good team!!!
    I am a fan of the NFL and my favorite team is Miami. Do I think they will be great? No!! I think they will have a good season period. But then your pea brain compares that to a REAL disaster in Houston. That is being a schmuck IMO

  7. Injures! Even with talent, injures can wipe out your season, next man up may not save the season. So if a good team has few injures, it should win most games. I think Miami is close to having the talent to win post season, there big question is, you guess it, Injures. Come back at Christmas and we will see who is good, and who is bad. Bill…Old School is good…

  8. Hey magnumpimustdeutche! You obviously are old enough to know about magnum p.i. but you act like the age of an ignorant high school cheerleader!

    It’s a long way from a disaster considering ‘our’ starting QB is gone. Trolling a division rival is one thing but isn’t it that tylaws bottom feeder’s job to go over the line?

  10. Who will be on the 10 man practice squad, and what trades are coming? Tomorrow should answer some questions.

    Quessing by their performances, Stringfellow, Lacey, Morgan, Doughty, Hewitt, Pitts, Malveaux, Praise, Storm and Deveon never played a down due to injury

  11. I’m interested to see how Cutler plays. If the offensive line can stay healthy and play well, I believe the team will be in the wildcard hunt in December.

    Magnumpimustache, enjoy another “Super” season and get rid of the hate in your heart. You’ll enjoy life more.
