Dolphins Activate OT Austin Jackson, Place OL Liam Eichenberg On IR

The Miami Dolphins announced they have activated OT Austin Jackson and placed OL Liam Eichenberg on injured reserve. 

Jackson has just come off injured reserve and is eligible to play, though it sounds like Miami will remain cautious with returning him to the field. Eichenberg will miss at least the next four games with an MCL injury. 

Miami also released QB Reid Sinnett from the practice squad.

In 2022, Jackson has appeared in one game for the Dolphins. 

Eichenberg, 24, was a three-year starter at Notre Dame and was named first-team All-ACC in 2020. The Dolphins drafted Eichenberg with pick No. 42 overall in the second round of the 2021 NFL Draft.

Eichenberg in the second year of a four-year deal worth $8,014,479 million with a $3,188,712 million signing bonus.
