The Dolphins got back two key players from the PUP List yesterday as the team activated Preston Williams and Elandon Roberts. Roberts injured his knee December, resigned with the team over the offseason, and started out on the sidelines at minicamp. He should be a key factor in the teams run defense. Williams sustained a foot injury in the middle of the season and ended the year on injured reserve and has taken his time to get back healthy. The Dolphins seem set with Jaylen Waddle, DeVante Parker, and Will Fuller as their top three, along with a surging Albert Wilson. Williams probably won’t see as much time as he was used to seeing.

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