The Miami Dolphins ended the 2014 season for cornerback Jamar Taylor and guard Nate Garner on Tuesday. Both players were placed on reserve lists, which will prevent them from participating in the team's final game this Sunday as they host the New York Jets.
Taylor dislocated his shoulder against the Denver Broncos in Week 12. He missed three games recovering from the injury before returning last week to play against the Minnesota Vikings. He recorded three tackles in the game, but did not appear to be 100-percent healthy. He will now finish the year on the sideline after being placed on injured reserve.
Garner has be inactive for the last five games as he suffers with migraine headaches. Reports indicate Garner's problem has not been linked to anything more serious, but the cause of the migraine headaches has not been discovered. Garner was placed on the non-football illness list.
Miami filled the two roster spots by promoting offensive lineman Sam Brenner and defensive tackle Deandre Coleman from the practice squad. The Dolphins also signed linebacker Jake Knott, who had been on the active roster earlier in December before being waived, back to the practice squad, releasing guard Michael Brewster.
