Dolphins activate Arian Foster from PUP list

Running back Arian Foster’s stay on the Physically Unable to Perform list was a short one.

The Dolphins have activated Foster, who signed with the team earlier this month. He tore an Achilles tendon last year in Week Four.

The move means he has passed a physical and is cleared to practice. The question now becomes how extensively he’s used during practice and preseason games. And whether he plays like he did during several very good if not great years with the Texans.

The Dolphins also signed cornerback Brandon Harris, a second-round pick of the Texans in 2011 who did not play in 2015 due to injury. To make room for Harris, they waived cornerback Tyler Patmon, an undrafted free agent in 2014 who spent part of two years with the Cowboys (appearing in 22 games) and part of 2015 with the Dolphins (appearing in two).

  1. They already stated they will limit his work in Camp. He obviously knows what to do and just needs to be a part of the new offensive scheme. Too many times these guys with ACL and moreover an Achilles are rushed back. He is being paid practically nothing. Total risk reward in favor of the team. If he does well he could earn some real incentive money and an extension. This also allows Jay Ajayi to gain much needed experience. I like it!
