With Brandon Marshall missing two games because of a hamstring injury and Brian Hartline possibly done for the season after finger surgery, undrafted rookie WRs Marlon Moore and Roberto Wallace will get more game experience than they likely expected in their first NFL season. Moore came onto the scene in the Week 12 win over the Raiders with a 57-yard touchdown catch. Wallace has been a solid special-teams contributor on the team's coverage units, playing in eight games this season. We hear that the front office is very high on the two; confident enough in their talent that it was willing to part ways with former third-round WR Patrick Turner before the season. Miami rarely uses more than three-WR sets, so the two rarely played when everyone was healthy. But the Dolphins didn't want to take the chance of either Moore or Wallace getting snatched up off the practice squad.
