NFL suspended Bucs FB Jorvorskie Lane two games for violating the league's policy against performance-enhancing drugs.
Lane has played just 43 snaps this season, rushing two times for 56 yards and catching a three-yard pass. He's drawn poor blocking grades from Pro Football Focus. Lane is more of a ball-handling fullback than lead blocker. Oct 15 - 11:13 AM

Buccaneers signed FB Jorvorskie Lane.

Lane was out of the league last season after being cut by the Dolphins near the end of camp. He isn't much of a lead blocker and has just 13 yards on 13 career carries to go along with three fumbles. Lane will compete for a spot.

Dolphins waived FB Jorvorskie Lane.

Even with Dustin Keller (knee) out for the year and H-back Charles Clay moving into the starting tight end role, Lane can't stick. He's not a plus lead blocker.

Dolphins FB Jorvorskie Lane is practicing with the third-team offense at training camp and is in danger of losing his roster spot.

The Dolphins apparently decided during Jeff Ireland's pre-training camp vacation that they're going to be a three-receiver, one-tight end team that uses an extra tight end whenever it runs out of the I-formation. It's also why the Fins decided against signing free agent Vonta Leach. Lane struggled as a lead blocker in 2012 and does not offer pass-catching ability.

The Dolphins benched FB Jorvorskie Lane in favor of H-back Charles Clay at times during OTAs.

Lane is a useful short-yardage option and special teamer, but was maddeningly up and down as a lead blocker last season. It's surprising the Fins have ostensibly jumped out of the Vonta Leach sweepstakes. They made heavy use of I-formations and the offset I last year, particularly when Lamar Miller was in the backfield. We would have loved Leach's addition for Miller's fantasy outlook.
