The Miami Dolphins announced Saturday that they’ve promoted QB Reid Sinnett to their active roster and officially placed QB Tua Tagovailoa on injured reserve with a rib injury.
Sinnett, 24, originally signed on with the Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent out of San Deigo back in May. He was among Tampa Bay’s final roster cuts coming out of training camp and re-signed to the practice squad, but was cut loose a day later.
The Dolphins signed Sinnett to their practice squad after a week and was eventually promoted back in November of last year. Miami re-signed him to a futures deal back in January only to release him coming out of the preseason and re-sign him to their practice quad.
During his four-year college career, Sinnett appeared in 45 games and recorded 275 completions on 423 pass attempts (65 percent) for 3,844 yards, 33 touchdowns, and 13 interceptions, to go along with 93 rushing attempts for 268 yards (2.9 YPC) and seven touchdowns.
