NFL injury updates, latest league news from Thursday, Feb. 17

New Miami Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel will have a familiar face in the wide receiver corps.

Miami announced Thursday that it has signed former San Francisco 49ers wide receiver River Cracraft.

Cracraft, who began his career with the Denver Broncos, played the last two seasons with the Niners, seeing action in 15 games over that span.

While Cracraft doesn't portend to make a huge splash for the receiving corps, his experience in McDaniel's system bodes well and he should be able to contribute in the return game.
