The Miami Dolphins passed on former Cleveland Browns wide receiver Brian Robiskie, declining to put in a waiver claim. Miami, who was thought to desire the wide out during the 2009 draft, currently only have three health receivers after placing Marlon Moore on injured reserve earlier this week - as well as a man short on their active roster.
The good news for the Dolphins, however, is that the three healthy receivers are their three top wide outs: Brandon Marshall, Davone Bess, and Brian Hartline. Hartline was teammates with Robiskie at Ohio State University.
While Miami does have a fourth wide receiver, rookie Clyde Gates, on their active roster, Gates missed last week with a groin injury. The rookie was limited in practice today, as per the Dolphins official injury report.
Practice squad receiver Julius Pruitt is thought to be the leading candidate to fill the 53rd slot on Miami's active roster. "They haven't told me officially but there's a pretty good chance," Pruitt said on Wednesday.
Robiskie had slid down the Browns depth chart recently, and was released in order to make room for running back Thomas Clayton yesterday. Robiskie was awarded off of waivers to the Jacksonville Jaguars today.
