Dolphins Sign Offensive Tackle Austin Jackson To Extension

The Miami Dolphins and right tackle Austin Jackson have agreed to a three-year, $36 million contract extension. It includes $20 million in guarantees and a max value of $39 million. Jackson, a first-round pick in 2020, protects the blindside for left-handed quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. He's appeared in every game this season and allowed just two sacks. He'll be under contract through the 2026 season.

Dolphins Decline Options On Austin Jackson, Noah Igbinoghene

The Miami Dolphins decided not to pick up the fifth-year options of offensive lineman Austin Jackson and cornerback Noah Igbinoghene on Tuesday, according to a source. The Dolphins took Jackson with the 18th overall pick in 2020 and Igbinoghene with the 30th overall pick in the same draft. Jackson served as the team's left tackle in his rookie season, but he was moved to left guard in 2021 before moving to right tackle in 2022. The 23-year-old played in just two games last year due to ankle injuries and will now be in a contract year. Igbinoghene has been a bust in the secondary for Miami, recording just 29 tackles (25 solo), an interception, five passes defensed and two fumble recoveries in 32 games (five starts) in his three NFL seasons to this point.

Austin Jackson On Injured Reserve, Dolphins Sign Eric Fisher

The Miami Dolphins placed offensive tackle Austin Jackson (ankle) on Injured Reserve on Monday and signed former No. 1 overall pick Eric Fisher in a corresponding move, according to league sources. This will be Jackson's second stint on the Injured Reserve this year due to an ankle injury, so there's a chance we won't see him again in 2022. The 23-year-old played just one game since he came off IR the first time, and the former first-rounder has played in just two games this year. Fisher started 15 games for the Indianapolis Colts in 2021 and could see significant playing time sooner than later in Miami with Terron Armstead (pectoral) also injured for the Dolphins offensive line.

Austin Jackson Ruled Out, Terron Armstead Doubtful

The Miami Dolphins ruled out right tackle Austin Jackson (ankle) for the Week 13 game against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday are listing left tackle Terron Armstead (pectoral, toe) as doubtful to play. The Dolphins are likely to be without both starting offensive tackles for a big game in Week 13 against the tough 49ers pass rush, so this could be a big storyline in Sunday's game. Jackson played in Week 12 for the first time since the season opener, but the 23-year-old former first-rounder suffered a new injury to the same ankle. With both Jackson and Armstead likely to miss this game, the Dolphins will turn to Brandon Shell and Greg Little to bookend their offensive line. It's bad news for the Dolphins offense overall.

Austin Jackson Activated, Liam Eichenberg Placed On IR

The Miami Dolphins activated offensive lineman Austin Jackson (ankle) from Injured Reserve on Tuesday and placed offensive lineman Liam Eichenberg (knee) on Injured Reserve in a corresponding move. Eichenberg suffered an MCL injury in the Week 8 win over the Detroit Lions and will now miss at least the next four games. Jackson has been out since getting injured in the season opener, and it remains to be seen if he'll be healthy enough to return to the starting right tackle job in a Week 9 matchup versus the Chicago Bears on the road. Greg Little and Brandon Shell have been filling in at right tackle with Jackson on the sidelines.

Austin Jackson Will Be Put On Injured Reserve

Miami Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel said that right tackle Austin Jackson (ankle) will be placed on short-term Injured Reserve. Jackson was injured in the Week 1 win over the New England Patriots and will now have to miss at least the next four games. The former first-rounder's injury initially wasn't believed to be all that serious, but that's not the case now. With the 23-year-old out of action for at least the next four contests, the Dolphins will likely ask Greg Little to fill in as the starter at right tackle, beginning in a tough Week 2 matchup with the Baltimore Ravens defense.

Austin Jackson Will Play In Opener

The Miami Dolphins removed the questionable tag on left tackle Austin Jackson, meaning that he has cleared the league's COVID-19 protocols and will play in the Week 1 season opener against the New England Patriots on Sunday. Jackson tested positive for COVID-19 at the beginning of the week and was placed on the COVID-19 list, but he was activated on Saturday and is now ready to suit up. It's a big boost for second-year quarterback Tua Tagovailoa against a Patriots defense that will make things difficult on him as he looks to put his rookie struggles behind him. Having the former 18th overall pick from last year protect his blind side should make life easier on Tagovailoa, but it doesn't necessarily make him all that much more attractive as a low-end QB2 from a fantasy perspective.

Austin Jackson Comes Off COVID-19 List

The Miami Dolphins activated left tackle Austin Jackson from the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Saturday after he tested positive for the virus on Monday. It remains to be seen if Jackson will actually play in Week 1 against the division-rival New England Patriots on Sunday, but he at least has a chance to suit up now. Jackson's presence on the offensive line would be a boost for second-year quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. The Patriots defense only managed 24 sacks as a team in 2020 (tied for 26th in the NFL), but they are returning some key players on that side of the ball, so things won't necessarily be easy for Tagovailoa. The former Alabama signal-caller was a big disappointment in his rookie season, but he had a full offseason this year and has the weapons on offense to turn things around. But until he shows us more, Tagovailoa is a low-end QB2, especially against New England's stiff defense.

Dolphins Put Austin Jackson On Injured Reserve

The Miami Dolphins placed rookie first-round left tackle Austin Jackson (foot) on Injured Reserve on Friday, meaning that he'll have to miss at least three weeks and likely longer with a foot injury he suffered in the Week 4 loss to the Seahawks. Miami will also be without starting defensive end Shaq Lawson (shoulder) and tight end Durham Smythe (knee) this Sunday against the 49ers. Wide receiver Jakeem Grant (illness) is questionable with a non-COVID-19-related illness. Head coach Brian Flores said the team is looking for a "long-term replacement" for Jackson, indicating he'll be out much longer than three weeks. With Jackson out for a while, the Dolphins will want to be comfortable with their offensive line before they even think about giving rookie Tua Tagovailoa his first career start under center. Julien Davenport could be asked to take over at left tackle. Another option is moving starting right tackle Jesse Davis to the left side while inserting rookie second-rounder Robert Hunt at right tackle.

Dolphins Sign First-Rounder Austin Jackson

The Miami Dolphins signed rookie left tackle Austin Jackson, who was taken 18th overall with one of the team's three first-round selections, to a four-year rookie deal on Thursday. Jackson played left tackle the last three years in college at USC, earning All-Pac-12 honors in 2019. He's 6-foot-5, 317 pounds and is still only 20 years old, but he should compete to be the team's starting left tackle right away in his rookie season. Jackson struggled a bit last year, but it might've been due to the fact that he donated bone marrow to his sister just two months before the start of the season. In the long run, he has a chance to be a fabulous left tackle in the NFL and help protect franchise QB Tua Tagovailoa.
