  • Dolphins' Austin Jackson: Working back from offseason surgery

    Jackson said Tuesday that he underwent reconstructive surgery on his right ankle during the offseason, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.

    Jackson played only three games in 2022 due to nagging ankle issues and had two stints on injured reserve, but it appears the surgery was both minor and successful as he was participating in team drills during the first day of OTAs. The 2020 first-round pick added that he's "angry excited" to get back on the field, and he should be the favorite for the starting right tackle gig in 2023.

  • Dolphins' Austin Jackson: Has option declined by Miami

    The Dolphins declined Jackson's (ankle) fifth-year option for 2024, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports.

    Selected 18th overall out of USC in the 2020 Draft, Jackson opened his career as the Dolphins' left tackle but was overwhelmed there and kicked inside to left guard as a sophomore. He was then flipped to right tackle in 2022, playing only three games last season due to nagging ankle issues. Jackson is expected to get another crack at right tackle this upcoming season.

  • Dolphins' Austin Jackson: Expected to remain starter in 2023

    Jackson (ankle) is expected to be the Dolphins' starting right tackle in 2023, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    After an injury-riddled campaign in 2022, Jackson -- if healthy -- is set to protect left-handed quarterback Tua Tagovailoa's blind side during the upcoming season. Jackson, a 2020 first-round pick, will be going into his fourth season with Miami.

    The Dolphins placed Jackson (ankle) on IR on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Jackson spent time on IR earlier this season due to a different ankle injury, and he now returns to the reserve list after making just one appearance since his last stint, Week 12 versus Houston. The Dolphins signed veteran Eric Fisher in a corresponding move.

  • Dolphins' Austin Jackson: Isn't playing Sunday

    Head coach Mike McDaniel said he's ruled out Jackson (ankle) for Sunday's contest against the 49ers, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    The Week 12 matchup versus Houston accounted for Jackson's first game action since Miami's season opener as a result of of an ankle injury, but the former first-round pick departed last Sunday's contest against the Texans with a new injury to the same ankle and has since been ruled out this weekend in San Francisco. With fellow tackle Terron Armstead also currently listed as doubtful with a pectoral injury, the Dolphins anticipate being without their two starters against a solid 49ers defense. Brandon Shell and Greg Little appear in line to each command a starting tackle role.
