NFL: New York Jets at Miami Dolphins Sam Navarro-USA TODAY Sports

After the best performance of his career yesterday, the Dolphins signed Duke Johnson to their active roster. Johnson ran for 107 yards and two touchdowns along with a reception for 20 yards and it was easily the best performance from a Dolphins running back all season. After Myles Gaskin, Salvon Ahmed, and Philip Lindsay had to be placed on the COVID-19 list, Johnson was promoted from the practice squad and made the most of his opportunity.

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