Dolphins Place G Josh Sitton On Injured Reserve With Rotator Cuff Tear



The Miami Dolphins announced Friday that they’ve officially placed G Josh Sitton on injured reserve with a torn rotator cuff.

Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports that Dolphins veteran G Josh Sitton it out for the season with a rotator cuff tear that he suffered in the second half of Week 1’s game.

According to Salguero, Sitton’s injury will require surgery and lead to him missing the remainder of the season.

Miami is expected to replace Sitton in the starting lineup with Ted Larsen.

You can expect the Dolphins to place Sitton on injured reserve and add someone to their roster in the coming days.

Sitton, 32, is a former fourth-round pick of the Packers back in 2008. He played eight years for the Packers before they released at the start of the 2016 season.

Sitton later signed a three-year, $21.75 million contract that included $10 million with the Bears. He was set to make a base salary of $7.4 million for the 2018 season when the Bears declined his $8 million option for 2018, making him an unrestricted free agent.

The Dolphins later signed Sitton to a two-year contract worth up to $18 million.

In 2018, Sitton appeared in one game for the Dolphins.
