Dolphins place Josh Sitton on injured reserve

Word on Friday morning was that Dolphins guard Josh Sitton would miss the rest of the season after tearing his rotator cuff in the season opener and the team made a roster move confirming that development later in the day.

The Dolphins announced that Sitton has been placed on injured reserve. They did not announce a corresponding move to fill Sitton’s roster spot.

Sitton became a free agent in March when the Bears passed on exercising their option on his contract and signed a two-year deal with the Dolphins shortly after the new league year began. Sitton joined running back Frank Gore and wide receiver Danny Amendola as “alpha dogs” that head coach Adam Gase believed would change the team’s culture for the better.

Sitton’s contributions on that front will come off the field for now. Ted Larsen is expected to take over at left guard.

  1. Anybody have the story on why a pro-bowl guard is being shipped around the NFL like a journeyman? My guess is locker room cancer. But would be interesting to know

    A Journeyman? He played for 2 Teams for the last 10 years. 8 for the Packers. The issue is that he is still a Pro-Bowler, but older. His Contract renewals are costly and the Bears moved on. This is truly a shame for him and the Dolphins. The Run Game and keeping Tannehill upright will be a challenge again. Larsen is good, but also older and injury prone. At least for the first time in many years they thought about depth. Still, this this is bad.

  3. Josh was my favorite Packer. Sorry to see his season done. I can start not caring about the Dolphins again. Matter of fact, I’m looking at a clip board Sitton autographed for me many moons ago.

  4. Always liked Sutton when he was a packer and was shocked when they let him go, but I think the Packers made the right decision – they probably could have gotten one more year out of him, but it did sound like he was considered bad for the team chemistry when they let him go.
