DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Reserve defensive tackle Vincent Taylor has been placed on injured reserve by the Miami Dolphins, who signed veteran defensive lineman Ziggy Hood as a replacement.
The Dolphins, plagued by both injuries and poor run defense, made the moves Tuesday.
Taylor hurt his foot in last week's loss at Houston. He had 27 tackles and two sacks this season.
MIAMI (AP) — Defensive tackle Akeem Spence has been acquired by the Miami Dolphins from the Detroit Lions for a late-round draft pick in 2019.
The Dolphins swung the deal announced Thursday to plug a hole created when they released five-time Pro Bowl tackle Ndamukong Suh for salary cap reasons. Spence will join a rotation at tackle that also includes Jordan Phillips, Davon Godchaux and Vincent Taylor.
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — Miami Dolphins quarterback Jay Cutler is active and set to start in their Sunday night game against Oakland after missing one game because of cracked ribs.
Guard Ted Larsen is inactive despite practicing during the week for the first time since a biceps injury sidelined him in August.
Also inactive for the Dolphins are quarterback David Fales, linebacker Stephone Anthony, guard Isaac Asiata, receiver Rashawn Scott and defensive tackle Vincent Taylor.
STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — It's well documented how No. 9 Oklahoma State relies upon its explosive offense to win games, but the Cowboys also have improved on defense this season.
Unlike the past two years when stars like Emanuel Ogbah and Vincent Taylor helped anchor the defense, Oklahoma State (2-0) has been succeeding without any big-time elite players. Instead, the Cowboys have done the job with depth, using a large stable of solid, effective defenders.
LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — For a moment during the third quarter, the Oklahoma State Cowboys more resembled a rugby club than an American college football team.
Mason Rudolph threw for 220 yards and one touchdown, Jalen McCleskey caught six passes for 129 yards, Justice Hill ran for 162 yards and Oklahoma State (5-2, 3-1 Big 12) extinguished Kansas' homecoming excitement, winning 44-20.
STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — Often an overlooked aspect of the game, specials teams played a key role in Oklahoma State's latest win.
The Cowboys blocked three PAT attempts, with Vincent Taylor and Tre Flowers teaming up to return one of them for two points and shifting the momentum in their favor on the way to a 49-31 victory over Texas on Saturday.
