Dolphins' Austin Jackson: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (foot) returned to practice Wednesday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Jackson is eligible to come off IR prior to Sunday's game in Arizona, but the Dolphins will evaluate the rookie lineman in practice before clearing him for game action. Once he's cleared to return, Jackson should slide back into the starting left tackle role.

Dolphins' Austin Jackson: No firm return date yet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Brian Flores said he does not want to provide a timetable for Jackson's (foot) return from injured reserve, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.

Jackson is approaching the three-game minimum requirement for players placed on injured reserve but his immediate return isn't in the cards given Flores' comments. Flores did relay Jackson is progressing well in his rehab, though he may not be healthy enough to return for several weeks.

Dolphins' Austin Jackson: Shifts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Dolphins placed Jackson (foot) on injured reserve Friday.

The rookie first-round pick will have to spend a minimum of three games on IR before retaking the field. Julien Davenport stands to slot in as Miami's starting left tackle as long as Jackson remains sidelined.

Dolphins' Austin Jackson: Not practicing Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (foot) won't practice Wednesday, per coach Brian Flores, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Jackson missed some time in last week's loss to Seattle due to this injury, and it's severe enough to keep him from practicing to open the week. Julien Davenport will take the reps vacated by Jackson, presumably making Davenport the favorite to start at left tackle Sunday in San Francisco if Jackson can't play.

Dolphins' Austin Jackson: Signs rookie deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson officially signed his rookie contract with the Dolphins on Thursday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

The 18th overall selection of the 2020 NFL Draft, Jackson possesses the athleticism and frame to push for an immediate starting role in Miami. The team does have a serviceable option available in Julien Davenport, though, in the event that Jackson would benefit from time to develop. In any case, the Dolphins no doubt consider Jackson the left tackle of the future, whether or not he garners a starting gig immediately as a rookie.
