DAVIE, Fla. (AP) -The Miami Dolphins claimed running back Samkon Gado off waivers from the Houston Texans and waived defensive tackle Sam Rayburn.
Gado ran for 210 yards and one touchdown in 2006 and has appeared in three games for the Texans this season with 18 carries for 46 yards.
As a rookie in 2005, Gado was the feel-good story of the Green Bay Packers' 4-12 season. Injuries to Green Bay's backfield pushed the undrafted free agent from the practice squad to a starting role. He started five games and ran for 582 yards and six touchdowns.
Rayburn had signed as a free agent Oct. 10.
