this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Don't know how this was missed! But on Saturday, Kovacs was moved from the practice squad to the 53-man roster for last Sunday's game.
He is only playing special teams at the moment, but I hope someday this season he can actually see time as a Safety.
According to Maize N Brew's Ex-Wolverines in the NFL, Kovacs recorded his first career NFL tackle on kickoff coverage.

Still a good chance he makes the practice squad.
Now that Jordan Kovacs is headed down south to play for my beloved Dolphins, I was wondering if the individual players receive compensation or royalties for any of their pro jersey sales. If Mr. Kovacs makes the team, I intend to purchase an Kovacs Dolphins Jersey. I'd like think that he gets a small piece of that. Anybody know?
Jake Long just had to walk to the locker room in his game vs. the Eagles.
I hope it is minor and I will update when more is known.
Per ESPN, the Dolphins have placed Jake Long on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list, as he is recovering from an offseason surgery (the article is about Brandon Marshall, which, great story... the second-to-last paragraph mentions Long being on the PUP list). Sparano seems optimistic about Long being ready for their week 1 game against the Pats. Hopefully he continues smoothly in his rehab and is ready to protect Henne's backside this season!
Didn't see this posted. I was checking out the Dolphins page and saw some good stuff about Henne. First link is a review of Henne vs. Sanchez by Matt Williamson, and the second link is a video Adam Schefter talking with Henne and Brandon Marshall.
It's nice to see Henne getting some love in the NFL.
