The Dolphins may have sent a message to the special teams unit today by waiving Erik Walden, who missed a block on the Jets’ blocked punt deep in Miami territory Sunday night, or they could have just been making room for an extra defensive end (Rob Rose, who was promoted from the practice squad) with news of Tony McDaniel’s one-game suspension. Anyway you see it, the weekly roster churning continues.
Also making headlines today, was a little insight into the Jared Odrick and Channing Crowder situations. As expected, Odrick still didn’t practice today, and is probably a long shot for Monday night’s game. Crowder, on the other hand, was back practicing on a limited basis, and will reportedly be evaluated on how he responds to the workout. Hopefully he continues to progress, because the run defense could sure use his services right now.
