Dolphins release ex-Gator/Gulf High player Leon Orr after arrest

DAVIE — Dolphins reserve defensive tackle Leon Orr was cut during practice Wednesday when the team learned of his arrest on marijuana charges near Naples.

Orr, 24, who played at Gulf High and Florida, was charged Tuesday with misdemeanor marijuana possession and felony possession of a controlled substance after police stopped him for having illegally tinted windows in his BMW, a Collier County Sheriff's Office report said. He is out on $7,000 bail.

The Dolphins had Tuesday off.

"We're in the middle of the season," coach Adam Gase said. "This is the No. 1 priority. If guys have other priorities, then they can go about their business somewhere else." The Dolphins have won six games in a row to join the playoff race.

Broncos: Quarterback Trevor Siemian was placed in a walking boot and held out of practice after spraining his left foot Sunday against the Chiefs. Coach Gary Kubiak said the injury wasn't too serious. Siemian demurred when asked if he was worried he'd miss the game Sunday at Jacksonville.

Colts: Quarterback Andrew Luck took the next step in the concussion protocol by returning to full workouts.

Falcons: Defensive end Adrian Clayborn, second on the team with 41/2 sacks, will miss at least two weeks after having surgery on his left knee, coach Dan Quinn said. Clayborn was hurt Sunday against Arizona. The loss came after top cornerback Desmond Trufant was placed on injured reserve with a torn pectoral muscle.

Packers: Linebacker Clay Matthews said he hurt his left shoulder on a "cheap shot" against the Eagles on Monday night: a block by lineman Allen Barbre. He was expected to play Sunday against the Texans.

Raiders: Quarterback Derek Carr said he would have no limitations Sunday against the Bills because of the injured pinkie on his throwing hand suffered Sunday against Carolina.
