The Miami Dolphins have swapped place kickers ahead of their NFL Preseason Week 2 contest against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  The team waived Danny Hrapmann, who joined the team just two days before the club face the Atlanta Falcons last weekend, and signed John Potter.  The team is currently carrying two kickers, as incumbent second-year player Caleb Stugis battles a groin injury.

Hrapmann served as the team's only kicker against the Falcons, converting an extra point and a 42-yard field goal. 

Potter comes to the Dolphins after spending a portion of the offseason with the Detroit LIons.  He was a seventh round draft choice of the Buffalo Bills in 2012, spending one season with the team.  He spend a portion of the 2013 season with the Washington Redskins, where he converted three of four field goal attempts and seven of seven extra points.  He has nine career appearances and 16 points scored.

Sturgis returned to practice this week, converting several field goal attempts in Thursday's practice.  It is unclear if the team will allow him to kick in tomorrow's contest.

The Dolphins face the Buccaneers at 7:30pm ET Saturday night.
