Dolphins' Donald Butler: Could start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Butler would start Thursday if Koa Misi (neck) can't play, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Butler is being prepared to play, as Misi looks like a game-time decision. Butler has only been with the Dolphins for a little over two weeks, but the team has been anxious to see what he can do with an expanded role.

Dolphins' Donald Butler: Expected to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Butler is expected to make his Miami debut Sunday versus the Browns, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

The Dolphins signed Butler after Week 1, and he now has practiced enough that he's ready for game action. He is expected to backup at MLB and play on special teams.

Dolphins' Donald Butler: Unlikely to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler will probably be inactive Sunday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Butler was only signed Tuesday and may not have a good enough grasp of the Miami defense to play in a game just yet. The plan is for Butler to eventually play weakside linebacker as the team continues to worry about the long term availability of Jelani Jenkins (knee).

Dolphins' Donald Butler: Signed by the Dolphins
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Butler was signed by the Dolphins on Thursday, Omar Kelly of the Sun-Sentinel reports.

Butler, who was cut by the Cardinals a little over a week ago, adds a veteran presence to a thin linebacker group. The 27-year-old could be ready in time for Sunday's tilt with the Patriots, but more information will be known as the week progresses. Butler figures to serve in a backup role, as he'll compete with Spencer Paysinger, Neville Hewitt, and Mike Hull for reps.

Donald Butler: Cut by Cards
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Butler was cut by the Cardinals on Friday, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.

Butler signed with Arizona at the end of July after being released by the Chargers. While he started his career with four straight seasons with at least 73 tackles, Butler's production waned last year, evidenced by his mere 43 stops. Although the 27-year-old's past numbers and relative youth should see him land elsewhere this season, he'll now be looking for his third team in a matter of months.
