Miami’s Patterson, Stanford go on reserve-injured

Miami Dolphins cornerback Dimitri Patterson has been placed on

the reserve-injured list because of a groin injury that has

bothered him since September.

Reserve cornerback R.J. Stanford also went on the

reserve-injured list Tuesday with a right leg injury. The moves end

the season for both players.

The Dolphins signed free agent cornerback Justin Rogers, and

signed safety Michael Thomas off the San Francisco 49ers’ practice

squad. Rogers started the first five games this year with Buffalo

and played in one game with the Houston Texans before they waived

him Nov. 28.

Patterson played in six games this season and had four

interceptions. He aggravated his groin injury during Sunday’s win

at Pittsburgh.
