The Dolphins released veteran right tackle Jordan Mills with an injury settlement, the team announced Tuesday.
Mills, who the Dolphins signed this offseason from Buffalo, started the team's first preseason game, but struggled on a porous Miami offensive line before missing time with an undisclosed injury.
Both Mills and Walford are expected to have short-term recovery timeframes, giving them a shot to latch on elsewhere when healthy.
In addition, the team announced it waived/injured linebacker Chase Allen and released veteran defensive tackle Akeem Spence. Spence started 16 games for the Dolphins in 2018.
Here is other news we're monitoring around the league Tuesday:
The 2019 first-round pick underwent a cardiac heart ablation procedure on July 31 and has yet to play in the preseason. McGary, who claimed about half the first-team snaps before the procedure, has been full-go in practice since Sunday.
- The Detroit Lions signed free-agent quarterback Luis Perez. They released quarterback David Fales and running back Zach Zenner, who'd been with the team for four seasons.
- Denver Broncos coach Vic Fangio said he thinks right guard Ronald Leary (Achilles) will be able to play in Denver's season opener.
"He's been improving with some of this time off he's been getting," Fangio said. "I think he'll be ready."
Fangio said tight end Jake Butt won't practice or play this week. After returnign to the playong field Saturday following a third ACl injury, Butt is dealing with knee soreness and might be out for some time.
- New York Giants coach Pat Shurmur said wide receiver Alex Wesley is dealing with an ankle issue, while left tackle Nate Solder was excused from practice for personal reasons.
- Arizona Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury told reporters linebacker Haason Reddick returned to practice Tuesday but was limited. Reddick had his meniscus trimmed in July, and Kingsbury said he still isn't sure if the former first-rounder will be available for Week 1.
- Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett doesn't anticipate La'el Collins doing much in practice Tuesday, but the belief is the offensive tackle will be ready for Week 1.
- San Francisco 49ers running back Jerrick McKinnon (knee) returned to practice Tuesday but receivers Trent Taylor and Jalen Hurd were unavailable. Taylor (foot) is "highly unlikely" to play Week 1, coach Kyle Shanahan said Tuesday, while Hurd (back) is a question mark for the season opener.
Second-year defensive lineman Kentavius Street will undergo a knee scope on Friday. Shanahan said Street will most likely end up on season-ending injured reserve.
