It's a short week for the Dolphins as they hit the field again this Thursday in what might be a scary Halloween matchup vs. the Bengals.

Despite the short week, slow and quiet is not the words I would use to describe the what's gone on in the Dolphins organization.

Here is a quick recap in case you missed everything going on in Dolphins world.

While the Miami Herald reported that Jeff Ireland was picking up the phone making calls Tuesday he simply could not find any takers.

The Dolphins placed WR Brandon Gibson on IR however have yet to announce who they plan to promote from the practice squad to take the 53rd and final roster spot. Ryan Spadola is the best bet to be promoted.

Tyson Clabo to return to the starting lineup

Dolphins RT Jonathan Martin has missed 2 straight practices with an illness, it is likely at this point Clabo gets the start on Thursday.
