Roster Move

Guard Matt McChesney was added to the injury report on Friday because of a knee injury, and it clearly was a bad injury because he was placed on injured reserve on Saturday.

To take his place on the roster, the Dolphins signed linebacker Rob Ninkovich off their practice squad.

A third-year player from Purdue, Ninkovich was a fifth-round pick of the Saints in 2006 and he first joined the Dolphins last year.

After appearing in seven NFL games in his first two seasons in the league, he tied for the Dolphins team lead with two sacks this preseason but was among the final cuts.

As for McChesney, the injury was unfortunate because he, too, had just been promoted from the practice squad and he saw playing time in the victory over Seattle last Sunday.
