Roster moves

The Dolphins made a few roster moves on Monday as they got closer to meeting Tuesday afternoon's mandated limit of 65 players, not counting those with NFL Europe exemptions. Perhaps the biggest name to be let go was wide receiver Terrence Wilkins, who had been signed in the offseason in the hopes he could boost the return game.

But Wilkins was slowed this summer by a hamstring injury and only made his preseason debut Saturday night at Tampa Bay.

Wilkins was used as the punt returner, but he fielded only one punt and fair-caught it. The other punts went into the end zone or out of bounds.

Technically, Wilkins' contract was terminated.

Waived were defensive end Josh Mallard, defensive tackle Jerome Stevens, tight end Hart Turner and cornerback Kevin Millhouse.

The Dolphins have nine players with NFL Europe exemptions, meaning they'll have to be down to 74 by Tuesday at 4 p.m. That leaves them with five moves to make.

Among those players who could get cut Tuesday are quarterback Clint Stoerner, fullback Ben Moa, wide receiver Carl Morris, tackle Tony Pape, linebacker Winston Taylor and William Delahoussaye.

It's also possible the Dolphins could put wide receiver David Boston on injured reserve.

In another move Monday, the Dolphins activated tackle Damion McIntosh off the Physically Unable to Perform List and he took part in Monday's practice.
