Dolphins have activated CB Xavien Howard

The Miami Dolphins announced Thursday that they’ve activated rookie CB Xavien Howard from the active/PUP list. Howard played college football at Baylor. Howard was drafted 38th overall in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft by the Dolphins.

Howard played at Baylor from 2012 to 2015. During his career he had 98 tackles, 10 interceptions 1.5 sacks and one touchdown. After his junior year he declared for the 2016 NFL Draft.

Howard, the team’s second round draft pick, is much-needed. Coaches had him penciled in as the starter almost from the second he was drafted in part because the Dolphins need a cornerback to play opposite Byron Maxwell.
