NFL: Miami Dolphins at Buffalo Bills Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

The Dolphins have placed two more started on the injured reserve list. Julius Thomas and Jermon Bushrod were placed on IR yesterday and that may also be the end of their short Dolphin careers. Thomas never lived up to expectations and Bushrod has been an average guard.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day's round-up below.
