The Dolphins waived defensive back T.J. Heath, kicker Zach Hocker and defensive back Lowell Rose on Tuesday, the team announced. Heath and Rose were with the team during the 2014 season, while Hocker was signed in the offseason.
The Dolphins have re-signed cornerback T.J. Heath, according to the Sun Sentinel. Heath, a former member of the Dolphins' practice squad, played in two games in 2014. The 27-year-old has been a part of the practice squads for the Jaguars, Bengals, Bills and Browns since coming into the league in 2011. He played in five games as a rookie with the Jaguars.
The Dolphins have promoted defensive back T.J. Heath from the practice squad to their active roster on Saturday, per the Miami Herald. Heath will take the roster spot vacated by defensive lineman Anthony Johnson, who was placed on injured reserve earlier in the week.
The Browns cut defensive backs Royce Adams and T.J. Heath, offensive linemen Randall Harris, Ryan Lee and Jeremiah Warren, running back Edwin Baker, defensive lineman Cam Henderson, receivers Tim Smith, Jonathan Krause and Anthony Armstrong, linebackers Caleb McSurdy and Keith Pough, and tight end Martell Webb.
The Browns have a lengthy list of players sidelined for Saturday's preseason game against the Rams, as a result of a slew of injuries in recent weeks. Defensive backs Buster Skrine (thumb) and Joe Haden (foot), and wide receiver Nate Burleson (hamstring) headline the list. Also among the inactives are: running back Edwin Baker (hamstring), defensive backs Pierre Desir (knee), Isaiah Trufant (knee), T.J. Heath (hip) and K'Waun Williams (hamstring), linebackers Eric Martin (concussion), Darius Eubanks (shoulder) and Keith Pough (ankle), defensive lineman Desmond Bryant (wrist), tight end Martell Webb (groin) and offensive linemen Michael Bowie (shoulder), Randall Harris (knee) and Nick McDonald (wrist).
