On Tuesday afternoon, NFL teams were required to trim their rosters once again – this time cutting down to 80 players.
The preseason allows for plenty of players to impress the coaching staffs, but there is little time to do so. During preseason play, hundreds of players will be cut by teams before the regular season kicks off.
It’s a tough moment for those players, who have worked their entire lives to make it in the league. Unfortunately, the end of the line – at least for now – came to three Miami Dolphins players this afternoon.
The team announced it released offensive lineman Jermaine Eluemunor and veteran wide receiver Isaiah Ford. Miami also listed wide receiver Robert Foster as a waived/injured designation.
Here’s the news from the Dolphins.
Roster Moves | We have released OL Jermaine Eluemunor and WR Isaiah Ford, waived/injured WR Robert Foster and placed WR Lynn Bowden Jr. on injured reserve.

From the team’s perspective the worst news came last. Miami announced that Swiss Army knife Lynn Bowden Jr. – who plays both wide receiver and running back for the team – was placed on injured reserve.
Bowden had already made his presence felt this preseason with a few nice receptions. With the former Kentucky star out of the lineup, running back Myles Gaskin could see even more work in the passing game.
