Sources: Dolphins signing OT Eric Fisher; OT Austin Jackson to IR play Stephen A., Orlovsky get heated over Tua's performance against the 49ers (2:28) Stephen A. Smith and Dan Orlovsky disagree on how Tua Tagovailoa performed in the Dolphins' loss to the 49ers. (2:28) 1:32 PM ET Marcel Louis-JacquesESPN The Miami Dolphins are signing veteran offensive tackle Eric Fisher and, in a corresponding move, placing starting right tackle Austin Jackson on injured reserve, league sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter on Monday. Jackson returned to the field in Miami's Week 12 game against the Cleveland Browns after missing the team's previous nine games with an ankle injury. He sustained a separate injury to the same ankle during his return and did not play in Week 13 against the San Francisco 49ers . His absence was compounded by left tackle Terron Armstead 's pectoral injury, which also kept him out of Sunday's game, which Miami lost 33-17. While the Dolphins' pass protection held up for the most part, San Francisco still pressured quarterback Tua Tagovailoa seven times with five hurries and three sacks -- all by defensive end Nick Bosa . Editor's Picks Tua downplays ankle injury after Dolphins' loss 16h Marcel Louis-Jacques 1 Related Fisher was the No. 1 overall pick of the Kansas City Chiefs in the 2013 NFL draft and was a Pro Bowl selection in 2018 and 2020. He spent the 2021 season with the Indianapolis Colts , starting 15 games at left tackle. Armstead made the trip to California as the Dolphins remain out west before their Week 14 game at the Los Angeles Chargers but there is no timetable on his return. He was listed as doubtful for Sunday's game and coach Mike McDaniel said he had pushed to play throughout the week. If Armstead can't play, Fisher, Greg Little and Brandon Shell will compete for the bookend tackle spots.
