Much roster adjusting for Dolphins on Sat.

NEW YORK -- The Dolphins are in Gotham, well, on the New Jersey outskirts across the river, and they are busy.

They have downgraded ILB Channing Crowder to out for Sunday's game against the Jets. Reggie Torbor is expected to start in Crowder's place on Sunday. Crowder is nursing a left shoulder injury and missed the entire week of practice.

The Dolphins thus have an open spot on the active game day roster and that is likely to be taken up by LB Matt Roth, who was activated onto the active roster on Saturday. To make room for Roth on the 53-man roster, the club waived TE John Nalbone.

Nalbone will now go through the waiver process. It is possible if another team doesn't claim him, he could be signed to Miami's practice squad next week.

In the meantime, it will be interesting to see if Roth, who has not played this season while he was on the non-football injury list, is used on special teams, as an outside linebacker or even gets snaps at inside linebacker. It is possible he will do all three.

Roth, you should remember, suffered a mysterious groin injury just prior to the opening of training camp. He missed all of training camp as a result and was placed on NFI as a result. He became eligible to start practicing against after the sixth week of the NFL season, and after missing some more time with a tweaked ankle, he returned to practice and worked all of this past week.

Roth was Miami's starting strongside linebacker in 2008, the job Jason Taylor has won this year.

Nalbone caught up in the numbers crunch. When Crowder comes back will it be Kershaw again or Moses?

I dont think Nalbone's done anything thus far to put him on any other team's radar. Most likely he will clear waivers and be resigned to the "deveopmental" squad, as Sparano loves to refer it as instead of "practice" squad.

A shoulder injury? Wimp. Just tackle with one side of your body. Zach Thomas used to say the only injuries that really concerned him were leg injuries because that kept you from getting to where you needed to get. Looks like Crowder has given up on the season.

I would be shocked if Roth is playing inside LB. I think there's a bigger chance that Yeremiah Bell lines up at tight end that Roth playing inside. Why would you think that?

Don't get excited if we Have bad coaching against the jets. Because we have bad coaching. They are football smart, but
Are dumb so cannot
Make
Adjustments

ok...who remembers who was still on the board when the drafted Nalbone? How about the top rated ofensive tackle in the draft. What were they thinking?

Mando? Turner?

Go Phins!

Here is list of people I tell you now going to have great games tomorrow:

1. Kendal Langford
2. Ronnie Brown
3. Jason Ferguson
4. Cameron Wake
5. Chad Henne
6. Brian Hartline
7. Vontae Davis

so we don't have the signal caller on the defense at linebacker. and we don't have the signal keeper for the defensive backs. goodness.
we better ram that ball down the Pets throats. 98-70 seems likely

Oh Yeah i almost forgot, Ted (I fall down) Ginn is going trick and treating as a Alligator(He's got the arms for it)

GO HURRICANES!

The mighty canes have pulled one out...

Crowder was just fearful that Rex "never met a hot wing he didn't devour" Ryan would sit on him.

LMAO@NJ java the pizza hut comment

How ya been dude? We have to kick Jets Azzzzz you know.

WHY I GET THE FEELING THAT SOME ONE IS TALKING TO HIMSELF ?

Ace the proud devil is home .no candy tonight devil ?

That's because vicke is talking to the menace. 2 in the same.

Ace , what's up ? I just saw the menace on tv dressed up as the indian or was it the construction worker from the village people in village's halloween parade.

Ace , he ( the menace ) then was spotted , in various eating places as himself . Java the pizza hut !

NJ,
How's your Joisey connection now? You always puff your chest out when you claim to get things right... You LOVED Nalbone and you LOVED Moses. What's the deal with them now? You don't even say, "Man I'm upset that my boys aren't active or part of the squad." Why is that? Just remind me of who you like the most now, and I'll make sure I don't buy that jersey. And now I'll say LMFAO because that somehow means everything that I've said is just a joke and nobody should really get upset about it because I'm just joking.

Martink , Nalbone did make the team Right ? He probably be put on the PS tommorrow. Fasano from jersey is still on the team RIGHT ? Parcells from Joisey is still there building a solid foundation Right ? Moses , is on the team right ? So what's the problem ? Just wondering ? LOL ! :)

any player comes from NJ sucks like the jets .
NJ IN Pre season he kept screaming NALPONE,MOSSES AND FASANO .IN THE END THEY ALL TURNED TO PLUMBERS NOT NFL CLASS PLAYERS .

>This Halloween i see our posters dressing up as follows

Would love to see Roth playing ILB....

You guys are some Internet gangstas. Real hard.

Just as hard as Rex Ryan.

To think we effed up David Martin's roster spot for Nalbone. Pity.

Wonder if the Pats pick him up for a debriefing prior to next week's game.

" You guys are some internet gangstas , Real hard " posted by Dolphan85. POT MEET F'N KETTLE ! LMFAO !

NJ,

Ha Ha!!!! Very funny!!!!

You get my C'mon Man award of the week!

Me and my Honey hit the Jacuzzi after my workout.
Then we ALL went out to a sports bar to watch the Canes and the Wolverines!!!!

NJ,

You know anything about Roth's athletic history(ha ha)?

I brought this up to you a week ago about Roth playing ILB. I know you said he played DE before and it was very unlikely.
Considering the injury to Crowder, and Armando now mentioning the possibility, do you still think it's out of the question?

Lol , odinseye. Are You a little banged up ( Drunk ?). Get some sleep , big day tommorrow. I'm out , good night.

Any status on pat turner??

Odinseye , Yes , i guarantee you roth doesn't play ilb. You think crowder and ayodele's coverage of te's and rb's was horrible , just take a look at roth trying to cover them. MY GOD ! it would be disaster. Plus he's never played the position.

Miami also signed ILB william kershaw when will allen went out for the year, you'll see him get playing time at ilb because of crowders injury.

I thought this was kind of funny, Looks like a typical Tedd Ginn reception try when the game is on the line. Wish his family could step in and give him a decent pair of catching hands. They said he had small hands at the draft evaluation, guess they were right.

Ted's Uncle is gonna help him catch some passes today, just in case it's crunch time and he's got the jitters...

I seldom wish misfortune on my fellow human beings (save for the likes of Osama bin Laden and Mahmoud Ahmedinejad), but I hereby put a hex on YOU, MrMrJohnson. May YOU experience the exact same pain that Mr. Crowder is experiencing right now. May YOU have to go to work tomorrow and be expected to function at 100% while experiencing the exact same pain. (And remember, all you have to do is sit at a desk - not run, jump and hit, further exacerbating your injury and your pain.)

Yes, football players are paid an enormous amount of money. If they play enough years, they can basically retire afterwards and never have to work another day in their life. Nevertheless, I still believe there are few of us who would have the physical courage to do what they do - put our bodies on the line week after week and experience their frequent physical agony. I have no doubt Mr. Crowder is in genuine physical pain, and would play if he were at all able to.

MrMrJohnson, to be so cavalier is to be so foolish.

Now, on to other things. I want to tell you all about three dreams I had last night.

In the first one, my wife and I bought a third dog - a maltipoo.

In the second dream, I was Capt. Frank Furillo on an episode of "Hill Street Blues." It was my chance to make a play for Joyce Davenport (Veronica Hamel). I really went for it and she was mine.

In the third dream, there was this goofball named MrMrJohnson who lived through the same torments as Job in The Book of Job. At first MrMrJohnson blamed God for all his torments. He thought he was blameless. Then God appeared before MrMrJohnson and said, "Where were you when I created the world? Where were you when I inflicted Channing Crowder with horrible pain? I know - mocking Mr. Crowder." Then MrMrJohnson got on his knees and prayed for forgiveness and relief.

That's one hell of a dream man.

the soap man had dreams ? what a shock .
