Dolphins make roster move in prep for Chiefs

he Dolphins this evening waived fullback Casey Cramer and signed linebacker William Kershaw off the practice squad.

The 6-3 and 240 pound Kershaw was in training camp with the New Orleans Saints before being released prior to the regular season. He was signed to the Dolphins practice squad Oct. 14.

The move could be a suggestion the Dolphins are seriously concerned about the availability of linebacker Channing Crowder for Sunday's KC game. Crowder hardly practiced this week -- missing two days and being limited the third day or workouts.

The Kershaw addition could be insurance as Reggie Torbor would take over for Crowder and Kershaw would be used on special teams, typically Torbor's game day duties.

Cramer, promising when he signed earlier this season, was sidelined by an ankle injury almost immediately. By the time Cramer got heatlhy, the team replaced him in the lineup with Lousaka Polite, who has become invaluable as a short-yardage back.

The Dolphins landed in Kansas City around 5:30 EST Saturday.

A reminder there will be a live blog of Sunday's game right here. Be here by kickoff.
