With Malcolm Brown heading to IR, the Dolphins have added Duke Johnson to their practice squad. The team currently has Myles Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed as their active running backs, so wouldn’t be a surprise to see Johnson or Gerrid Doaks brought up from the practice squad before Sunday’s game against the Bills. Johnson was released by the Texans back in February but later signed with the Jaguars practice squad in September before being released from there.

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