Full list of Miami Dolphins roster cuts: Will Allen, Larry Johnson, Lou Polite don’t make it; Lydon Murtha to Injured Reserve 

By Post Staff

Two of the Dolphins’ oldest veterans did not make the cut.

Sources confirm that cornerback Will Allen and running back Larry Johnson were both cut today. Since both players are vested veterans, it is possible that the Dolphins could still bring both back after Week 1, when their full-season salaries would no longer be guaranteed.

In other roster moves, fullback Lousaka Polite was indeed cut, and struggling second-year guard John Jerry has made the team. But in the biggest news, backup right tackle Lydon Murtha, who suffered an injury in the third preseason game against the Bucs, has been put on injured reserve and is out for the year. Murtha had been filling in for Jake Long at left tackle, and his loss is a big blow to the Dolphins’ depth on the offensive line.

The Dolphins cut both backup quarterbacks, Kevin O’Connell and Pat Devlin, as well as punt returner Phillip Livas. But the Dolphins did keep six receivers, with both Marlon Moore and Roberto Wallace making the squad.
