DAVIE, Fla. The Miami Dolphins terminated the contract of veteran guard Lance Louis on Tuesday afternoon, and they also waived fullback Jorvorskie Lane and seven others. Each NFL team needed to reduce its roster to 75 players by 4 p.m. Higher-profile players could fall victim on Saturday, when rosters need to be cut to 53 players by 6 p.m. ahead of the regular season. Louis, a Chicago Bears starter the past two seasons, signed with Miami as a free agent. He suffered a torn ACL in November and had been slow in rehabbing, no doubt hurting his chances with the Dolphins. Lane, who played for Miami offensive coordinator Mike Sherman at Texas A&M, went undrafted in 2009 when he weighed a reported 295 pounds. Listed with the Dolphins at 258 pounds, he had 13 carries for 13 yards in 16 games with Miami last season. Former Bears fullback Evan Rodriguez remains on the Miami roster, but he's no guarantee to make the regular-season roster as the Dolphins don't seem to have a major need for a traditional fullback. Other players waived Tuesday included linebackers Michael Clay, Nathan Williams and David Hinds; wide recovers Jeff Fuller, Julius Pruitt and Andrell Smith; and defensive end Emeka Onyenekwu. The Dolphins will play host to the New Orleans Saints on Thursday night in the preseason finale for both teams. Charlie McCarthy can be reached at mac1763@bellsouth.net or on Twitter @mccarthy_chas
