The Miami Dolphins have continued to whittle their 2015 roster down, working their way toward the regular season requirement of 53 players before Saturday's 4pm ET deadline. Earlier on Friday, five cuts were identified: defensive tackle Anthony Johnson first, then a group of four: linebacker James Davidson, offensive linemen Michael Liedtke and Donald Hawkins, and wide receiver Damarr Aultman. The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson, who first reported all of those cuts, now has added two more releases to the list:

As with most of the cuts thus far in this round of roster cuts, there is not a lot of surprise to these two moves. Coleman spent the 2014 season on the Dolphins' practice squad, and never really made a major impression during the Preseason. Luc was one of four undrafted free agent linebackers signed by the Dolphins this offseason, likely ranking as the third of the four; he seemed to be behind Zach Vigil and Mike Hull while being ahead of Neville Hewitt.
The Dolphins have until Saturday at 4pm to get down to the 53-man roster. With the cuts made so far today, the team is sitting at 68 players. No official announcement of roster moves has been released by the team yet.
