Roth Ready to Play

Per The Associated Press:

Linebacker Matt Roth(notes) said Wednesday he is healthy and ready to resume practice after the Miami Dolphins' next game.

Roth has been sidelined by a groin injury since the start of training camp. He is on the reserve-non-football injury list and said he has been told he'll be back at practice after the Dolphins' game against New Orleans on Oct. 25. "I'll be ready to knock heads off," he said. "I can't wait."

Roth will return as a reserve after losing his starting job to six-time Pro Bowl selection Jason Taylor

So what role do you guys see Roth playing once he's back on the active roster?

I see him probably being inactive for the first week back, till he gets at least a weeks worth of practice to get up to playing speed.  Once he's back at that level, I wouldn't mind seeing more substitutions of the OLBs with Wake and Roth giving Taylor and Porter some breathers to keep them fresh.  The addidtion of Roth I'm hoping will only bolster our run defense, I'd even go so far as to suggest Roth and Taylor being the starting OLBs, with Porter and Wake as pass rush specialists.
