Tillman to IR; Harris activated

This is news from the past week that I never got a chance to post, but S Travares Tillman was placed on IR with a knee injury. He had knee surgery in early October, but his recovery was coming along very slowly. This is the third safety to be placed on IR this season for Miami. In all honesty, Tillman was pretty poor even when he was healthy. Hopefully the team will cut ties with him for good after this season. He just can't offer this team anything at this point.

S Tuff Harris (that's him getting some incredible air in the picture above) was activated from the practice squad to take Tillman's place. Harris played in all four preseason games, finishing with 12 tackles (11 solo) and one pass defended.

K Matt Prater was signed to the practice squad spot vacated by Harris. Prater played in two games this season for the Falcons. He was 1/4 on FGs. He had 4 kickoffs averaging 71.2 yards with 3 touchbacks.
