Gray, 25, signed with Miami's practice squad on Sept. 9 after being waived by the New England Patriots during final cuts. He was promoted to the active roster on Sept. 11, but was then cut on Sept. 14 after not seeing any playing time in Miami's season-opening win against the Washington Redskins. Gray was later sent back to the practice squad.
Gray originally signed with the Dolphins in 2012 as an undrafted free agent out of Notre Dame and spent time on Miami’s practice roster that season.
In October 2014, the Patriots signed Gray to their active roster. He played in eight games for New England and rushed for 412 yards and five touchdowns.
Gray made history as the first player in Patriots franchise history to rush for four touchdowns, doing so against the Indiana Colts last November, and appeared on that week’s Sports Illustrated cover.
Miami (1–1) will play its home opener against the Buffalo Bills (1–1) on Sunday.
