Dolphins 53-man roster prediction updated for Friday cuts

NFL: Miami Dolphins at Philadelphia Eagles Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Dolphins started making their roster cuts on Friday, looking to move from the 90-man roster limit down to the regular season limit of 53 players. One of those cuts, defensive lineman Nick Williams, was on our previous prediction of the roster on Friday. With that move, we made an update to the roster, adding center Jake Brendel to the roster from the practice squad.

The open position on the practice squad was then filled by guard Isame Faciane, who was also included in the reported cuts on Friday.

Here is the updated roster prediction as of Saturday morning:
