The Miami Dolphins mad three roster moves on Sunday, following the three moves they made on Saturday. A day after activating Bobby McCain from the Physically Unable to Perform list, signing cornerback Rashaan Melvin, and waiving tight end Jake Stoneburner, the team made almost the exact same set of moves Sunday morning.

The team officially activated running back Arian Foster from the PUP, allowing him to practice for the first time with the team. Foster signed with Miami as a free agent earlier in the month, after spending seven years with the Houston Texans. He is coming off an Achilles tendon tear he sustained in Week 7, playing against the Dolphins.

Miami added cornerback Brandon Harris, signing as a free agent after missing all of 2015 due to injury. Harris played for the Tennessee Titans in 2014 and for the Texans from 2011 to 2013 after being the team’s second-round draft choice in the 2011 NFL Draft. Harris is a Miami native, attending Booker T. Washington High School and the University of Miami.

In order to make roster space for Harris, the team waived cornerback Tyler Patmon, who played in two games for the club in 2015 after spending most of the season won the practice squad. He entered the league in 2014 as an undrafted free agent, signing with the Dallas Cowboys.

The Dolphins added to the three-roster move announcement on Sunday, placing defensive end Dion Jordan on the Non-Football Injury list. Jordan, who was conditionally reinstated Friday by the NFL after a 15-month suspension for violations of the league substance abuse policy, sustained a knee injury at some point during the offseason and recently had to have it surgically cleaned out. He is expected to miss 2-3 weeks.
