The Miami Dolphins made a roster move on Tuesday the team announced, waiving defensive tackle C.J. Mosley, who injured his calf in the team's Week 12 game against the New York Jets. Mosley signed this preseason with the Dolphins, re-uniting him with his former Detroit Lions teammate Ndamukong Suh. Mosley recorded seven tackles this year, appearing in all 11 games for the Dolphins.

To fill the vacant roster spot, the Dolphins signed defensive tackle Robert Thomas off the New England Patriots' practice squad. He also spent time this year on the Seattle Seahawks' practice squad and was on the Washington Redskins' practice squad for all of his rookie year in 2014.

According to a report from the South Florida Sun-Sentinel's Omar Kelly, the Dolphins initially made an attempt to re-acquire defensive tackle A.J. Francis, who was on the Seahawks' practice squad. Francis, however, was promoted to the Seahawks' 53-man roster on Tuesday.

The move marked the second addition to the Dolphins roster on Tuesday, with Miami also re-signing center Jacques McClendon, with a corresponding waiving of linebacker James-Michael Johnson.
