Wednesday September 23rd, 2015

The Miami Dolphins elevated running back Jonas Gray to their active roster, the team announced on Wednesday.

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 RedskinsGray 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 2013, Gray was a practice player for the Baltimore Ravens before signing a future/reserve contract with the Patriots in January 2014, and then moving to the team’s practice squad.

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.
