Dolphins promote DB Heath


The Miami Dolphins signed defensive back T.J. Heath from their practice squad Saturday.

Heath takes the roster spot of defensive tackle Anthony Johnson, who was placed on injured reserve Friday.

Johnson, an undrafted rookie who had recently become a regular contributor along the defensive line, suffered a serious ankle injury Thursday that left him on crutches.

Heath gives the Dolphins help in an injury-depleted secondary as they prepare to play the New England Patriots on Sunday.
