The up-and-down season for running back Jonas Gray continued on Wedenesday as the Miami Dolphins once again promoted him from the practice squad to the active roster. Gray replaces cornerback Will Davis on the roster a day after Davis was traded to the Baltimore Ravens for a seventh-round draft choice.
Gray's 2015 season has been a whirlwind of roster moves. He started this year on the New England Patriots' roster, but was released in the final round of roster cuts this Preseason. After clearing waivers, Gray decided to sign with the Dolphins, the team that signed him as an undrafted free agent in 2012. He was on the 53-man roster for the team's first game, but was among the weekly seven inactive players listed before the game. He was then released following the contest and, again having cleared waivers, was signed to Miami's practice squad.
With an injury to starting running back Lamar Miller last week against the Jacksonville Jaguars and the available roster space, bringing Gray back to the 53-man roster makes sense.
Gray spent his rookie season in 2012 on the Physically Unable to Perform list for the Dolphins, then was on the Baltimore Ravens' practice squad for the 2013 season. In 2014, he began the season on the Patriots' practice squad, but was then promoted to the active roster for the second-half of the year. He appeared in eight games, with three starts, last year, recording 412 rushing yards on 89 carries with five touchdowns.
