He's back! The Dolphins ink JP Losman. (US PRESSWIRE)

Posted by Ryan Wilson

Words we never thought we'd write: JP Losman is back in the NFL. The Miami Dolphins rescued Losman from football obscurity and, depending on your perspective, put him in a less enviable situation. Losman will be the No. 2 quarterback behind Matt Moore, who injured his ribs in Sunday's loss to the Broncos but is expected to play against the Giants this week, according to the Palm Beach Post's Ben Volin.

To make room on the roster for Losman, the Dolphins placed Sage Rosenfels on the Reserve/Non-Football Illness list. FoxSports.com's Alex Marvez writes that Rosenfels recently became sick with the same illness that landed him in the hospital in August. 

“I am thankful for the opportunity the Dolphins gave me to come here and play,” Rosenfels said in a statement through agent Rick Smith that was given to FOXSports.com. “I was looking forward to contributing to the team when I signed.

“When I first joined the Dolphins, all tests showed that I was healthy and ready to go. But after practicing for a few weeks, especially in the heat, some new indications made it obvious that I need to rest and allow my body to regain all requisite strength. I want to thank the Dolphins for their understanding and wish them the best of luck the rest of the season.”

Rosenfels was signed nearly three weeks ago after starter Chad Henne was lost for the season with a shoulder injury. Before settling on Rosenfels, Miami also put Kellen Clemens, Losman, Jim Sorgi, and Charlie Frye through the paces. Apparently, Losman impressed them enough to bring him back.

The former Tulane star was the Bills' 2004 first-round pick. After five years in Buffalo, where Losman started 33 games, threw for 6,211 yards, 33 touchdowns and 24 interceptions, he landed in Oakland in 2009 and was in Seattle for parts of 2010. He also played for the UFL's Las Vegas Locomotives in 2009, where he had 1,193 passing yards, nine touchdowns and two picks.

And now, Losman's an injury away from playing again in the NFL, although he'd be a much bigger help to the Dolphins if he was a defensive coordinator.

arinze:  Tribe fan....are you seriously that clueless?  Manning has talked about returning this year!!!!  What in the world makes you think he might never play again?  He's never missed much time up until now and this surgery could be nothing more than fixing something that has been a lingering problem for him.  The thing about injuries is that the average fan, like yourself, doesn't know the extent of it....and certainly not enough that your willing to throw out there that his career may be done.  

arinze..... are you seriously that clueless?  Players always say they are coming back sooner than they are.  What in the world makes you think he may play again this year?  He's not played a down all season and this surgery is on his freaking NECK!  My point is that the average fan, like yourself, doesn't know the extent of it... and certainly not enough that your [sic] willing to throw out there that he might be returning this season [sic].

See how clueless you sound calling someone clueless?  It certainly was painful to use your writing style for effect.

Actually, I was talking with the Colts doctors last week so I think my information is good.  I don't remember seeing you in the room.

Your lack of football knowledge can't be that bad (John Elway and Jim Plunkett were the only first overall picks to win the superbowl)

I got 2 names for ya that you might have heard of Peyton Manning & Eli Manning.  You might have heard of them before, yeah?

With all this focus on Luck, given all the talented quarterbacks come out in this years draft.  There is gonna be a lucky team to get Robert Griffin III, this guy is Cam Newton with a better touch on the deep ball and accuracy.  WITH SO MANY QUARTERBACK ISSUES IN THE NFL, TAKE A PROVEN MATURE GUY IN 2ND ROUND LIKE MY COWBOYS WEEDEN.  HE IS 28 AND ALREADY NFL READY, MATURE AFTER PLAYING MULTIPLE SEASONS WITH THE YANKEES ORGANIZATION.

How can you even make a statement like that?  Luck has never thrown a pass in the NFL and Bradford has proven to be a franchise quarterback in one year.  He has zero recievers and absolutely no protection.

DCGoGo, every QB drafted first overall since the merger has either started from game 1 or was starting by season's end including the Jeff Georges of the world. There is too much of an investment for a team to draft a QB 1st overall and then put him on the bench.
If as team wants to draft a QB to sit and learn for a season or two they will either draft in the bottom of the 1st round or more likely the second round. Remember Rogers was drafted only because he was still available, it was not in the plan for the Packers to draft a QB.

DOn't remember seeing a statement where Luck said he wants to start...I am sure every footbal player thinks he is good enough t ostart right out of college...but if in fact he did say that and if the NFL team know abuot ...I guarrantee he will be riding the bench the first year unless one of you crazies out there takes out the starting QB Luck get drafted too....

The colts will never trade peyton , plus luck has a year of college if he so choses ..... And anyway luck is not a sure thing the only number one picks are qb to ever win the super bowl playing where jim plunkett and john elway ( both at the end of their careers )...... And bledsoe winning one on the bench. .. The rest have failed so i wouldn't get too too worked up dolphin fans. Haha

"The Colts at least are trying" - 62 - 7 yeap it sure seems that the Colts are trying......trying to finish 0 - 16 more like.

Luck has stated in the past that he wants to starts from the get-go and is not interested in sitting behind anyone for a few years. So this rules out Colts, as if they (the Colts) try to trade Manning, Indy will end up with their own "Arab Spring"
