Rudolph tore his ACL at Wednesday's practice and has been placed on the Dolphins' practice squad injured reserve, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
Rudolph will miss the rest of the season and presumably attempt to recover in time for 2019 training camp, where he will be fighting for a 53-man roster spot.
Rudolph signed a practice squad contract with the Dolphins on Wednesday, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.
Rudolph was unable to crack the 53-man roster with the Giants, but he has found a new home in Miami, close to where he grew up and played college at Florida State. There's a chance he could join an active roster down the road after playing 253 offensive snaps for the Giants last season.
Rudolph was waived by the Giants on Saturday, Dan Duggan of The Athletic New York reports.
Rudolph was always seen as a long shot to make the Giants' final roster, especially when he was forced to miss a preseason game with an undisclosed injury. He is, however, a prime candidate to land on the team's practice squad.
Rudolph (undisclosed) will not take part in Friday's preseason game against the Lions.
Rudolph sits on the periphery regarding a 53-man roster spot entering the 2018 campaign, though he does have eight games under his belt in a Giants uniform. He will miss an opportunity to make an impression before cuts Friday, lessening his chances of seizing a spot.
