Not only do the Dolphins leave a bad taste in your mouth, they’re also banged up.

So they made a few moves to add some depth to thin positions Tuesday.

According to Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post, the Dolphins are placing linebackers Koa Misi and Chris McCain on season-ending injured reserve.

With those roster spots, they’re bringing back offensive linemen Shelley Smith and Jacques McClendon, and linebacker James-Michael Johnson.

The Dolphins are out of the playoff mix, but they have to put a lineup on the field, and they were short up front. With center Mike Pouncey leaving with a leg injury last week, they were forced to play rookie guard Jamil Douglas there. Now they at least have some cover.
