The Dolphins waived Petty (oblique) from injured reserve Tuesday, Dennis Waszak Jr. of the Associated Press reports.
Analysis: Petty was claimed off waivers by Miami in May, but failed to beat out Brock Osweiler and David Fales and was subsequently put on IR with an oblique issue. Petty is now free to sign elsewhere, though the list of potential suitors may be in short supply. The former fourth-round pick in 2015 has completed just 53.1 percent of his passes and has thrown 10 interceptions in 10 career games.
Petty (oblique) has been placed on injured reserve, according to the league's official transaction log.
Analysis: Petty, who almost exclusively worked with the third-team offense throughout the summer, has been dealing with an unspecified oblique injury for roughly a week. The Dolphins will move forward with a combination of Ryan Tannehill, David Fales and Brock Osweiler at quarterback.
Petty (oblique) didn't participate in Thursday's practice, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Petty is battling David Fales and Brock Osweiler to be Ryan Tannehill's backup, so getting healthy for Saturday's exhibition game against the Ravens is crucial for his chances. The fourth-year pro has completed nine of 13 passes for 111 yards, one touchdown and one interception through two preseason games.
