On Tuesday, the Miami Dolphins waived safety Brandian Ross when they signed defensive tackle Deandre Coleman. The move appeared to end the chance for a London trip for Ross, who will not be with the Dolphins when they face the Oakland Raiders Sunday in Wembley Stadium. Instead, he will be with the Raiders.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, theRaiders were awarded the waiver claim for Ross on Wednesday.

Ross initially joined the Dolphins after being claimed off waivers from the Raiders at the end of the preseason. He was waived a few days later and signed to Miami's practice squad where he remained until this past Saturday, when he was promoted from the practice squad and was active for the team's game against the Kansas City Chiefs, playing seven snaps on special teams.

Ross was waived when the Dolphins poached Coleman off the Jacksonville Jaguars' practice sqaud. He originally signed with the Jaguars as an undrafted free agent on May 12, 2014. A four-year letterman at California, Coleman played in all 49 games in his career with 25 starts and totaled 125 tackles, 26.5 tackles for loss, 7.5 sacks, three passes defensed and two fumble recoveries.
