Dolphins Promote FS Anderson Russell To 53-Man Roster
The Miami Dolphins filled the empty roster spot Saturday evening by promoting practice squad safety Anderson Russell to the 53-man roster.
Russell, who has been on the Dolphins' practice squad since the 2011 season, could be on the active roster for Sunday's 1 p.m. game against the Indianapolis Colts.
Head coach Joe Philbin must decide if it is best to start an injured Ryan Tannehill, allowing the rookie to play with a bruised left knee, or go with a healthy Matt Moore, his backup.
Philbin and Miami's coaches will discuss the issue Saturday evening and come to a consensus based on what they've seen this week in practice from Tannehill.
The Dolphins could also find themselves playing without leading receiver Brian Hartline (groin) and defensive tackle Tony McDaniel (right knee sprain).
