DAVIE, Fla. -- The Miami Dolphins have signed Kevin Curtis to bolster their wide receiving corps.

Curtis, 32, will provide some depth for the Dolphins, whose receivers have been riddled with injuries this season. Brandon Marshall has dealt with a hamstring injury in recent weeks, while Brian Hartline will miss the rest of the season after undergoing hand surgery a week ago.

Curtis has not played in the NFL this season because he reportedly was battling testicular cancer. The Deseret News reported in October that Curtis underwent surgery in September to remove a cancerous testicle, but quoted him as saying that there was no sign the disease had spread.

Curtis played in only 12 games in 2008-09 because of various injuries. In 79 career games over seven seasons with St. Louis and Philadelphia, Curtis has recorded 252 receptions for 3,291 yards and 20 touchdowns.

He set career highs of 77 catches and 1,110 yards in 2007 with the Eagles.
