Dolphins roster cuts updates and rumors tracked

The NFL is reaching the end of the 90-man preseason roster limit, which means there are a lot of players about to be cut. We keep up with all the Miami Dolphins news and rumors here.

The Miami Dolphins have to reduce their roster from the preseason limit of 90 players to the regular season roster size of 53 players by 4pm ET on Saturday. Throughout the next couple of days, the roster cuts will come in quickly as coaches inform players of the decision to release them. We will track everything throughout the next couple of days, with all of it consolidated here in one place.

Miami starts Friday morning with 88 players on the roster, with the most recent roster move being the waiving of Kraig Urbik with an injury settlement. The team could see some players land on injured reserve including Tony Lippett, who has a torn Achilles tendon, and Raekwon McMillan, who tore his ACL, which will add some free roster spots to the team. They will join Ryan Tannehill (knee), Koa Misi (neck), Isaiah Ford (knee), and Lamin Barrow (knee), all of whom are already on IR.

The team also has wide receiver Rashawn Scott on the physically unable to perform list, which can carry into the regular season.

The rest of the cuts will be updated below.
