Murtha to IR, Oglesby re-signed; practice squad update

A flurry of roster moves have happened over the past few days.

First, TE David Martin, who was on injured reserve, was released by the team. I'm not really sure of the reasoning behind this move. Perhaps Martin felt he was back to full strength and wanted a chance to sign with some other team.

T Lydon Murtha, who was claimed off Detroit's practice squad in October, has been placed on IR with an ankle injury that he sustained in practice on Wednesday.

Taking his place is CB Evan Oglesby, who was on Miami's roster for four days last month.

The Dolphins also tweaked its practice squad, releasing CB Will Billingsley and signing T Nevin McCaskill.

McCaskill (6'4, 315) is 25 years old. He was an undrafted free agent out of Hampton in 2007. He has spent time with the Bills, Eagles, Jets, and Packers. He was on the Packers' active roster for the final three games in 2008. He can play both guard and tackle.

The Dolphins practice squad now looks as such:
  • WR Julius Pruit
  • TE John Nalbone
  • RB Tristan Davis
  • LB J.D. Folsom
  • S Nate Ness
  • G/C Mark Lewis
  • WR Taurus Johnson
  • T Nevin McCaskill
