The Miami Dolphins have begun the process of trimming their preseason roster down to the 53-man regular-season limit enforced by the NFL. Every team has to be down to the 53-man mark by 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday, leading to more than 800 players heading toward the waiver wire and potentially to free agency. Teams will be able to start signing practice squad players on Wednesday.

Throughout the next two days, we will keep track of all the Dolphins’ roster moves and update the status of the current roster. There will be tough calls to make between now and the deadline and every decision made has impacts elsewhere on the roster.
