MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Fresh off getting torched by the Indianapolis Colts for 433 passing yards, the Miami Dolphins secondary took another hit Wednesday when the team put cornerback Richard Marshall on injured reserve.
Marshall was signed to a lucrative free agent contract in the offseason and his presence gave the team enough confidence to trade away cornerback Vontae Davis. But Marshall has been out for several weeks and is now gone for the season.
The Dolphins quickly filled the open roster spot for Marshall when they were awarded cornerback Brandon McDonald off the waiver wire. McDonald last played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers before being put on waivers.
McDonald has played in 77 career games with the Cleveland Browns, Arizona Cardinals, Detroit Lions, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He has 174 career tackles, nine interceptions, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, and one sack.
