The Miami Dolphins will finalize their roster plans on Saturday following a series of cuts to reduce their roster size to the required 53 players.
On Friday, the Dolphins released TE Kyle Miller before the bulk of the cuts. Saturday's cuts began with CB Kevin Fogg and went on with RB Daniel Thomas, and RB Marcus Thigpen. As the day continued, Miami cut WR Matt Hazel, OL David Arkin, WR Kevin Cone, and LB Andrew Wilson according to the Miami Herald.
With the 4:00 p.m. deadline nearing, the Dolphins cut QB Seth Lobato, S Jordan Kovacs, DE Tevin Mims, DT Garrison Smith, OL Evan Finkenberg and OL Tony Hills. DT Kemal Johnson was placed on injured reserve with a torn meniscus.
The last group of cuts on Saturday included K Jake Rogers. DT Isaako Aaitui, C Sam Brenner, DE D'Aundre Reed, and TE Evan Wilson per the Herald.
There are actually more players on the roster if suspended players Dion Jordan and Reshad Jones are factored in. The two players are suspended for the first four games of the season with that suspension beginning officially on Saturday.
Once Jordan and Jones are eligible to play again after four games, the Dolphins will need to make a pair of cuts to bring them on board. These first four games will give Miami a bonus opportunity to look at a couple of guys who may have otherwise been cut prior to the season.
The season opener will be on September 7th against the New England Patriots at Sun Life Stadium.
