The Miami Dolphins were awarded tackle Bryce Harris off waivers on Monday, the team announced. Harris was waived by the Jacksonville Jaguars on Friday. He spent six weeks with Jacksonville, but never appeared in a game.
Harris joined the NFL as an undrafted free agent out of Fresno State, signing with the Atlanta Falcons in 2012. He spent the 2012 through 2014 seasons with the New Orleans Saints before returning to Atlanta for the 2015 season. He has played in 34 career games, with four starts.
The move gives Miami some additional offensive line depth, where injuries have taken their toll in the last week. Pro Bowl starters Branden Albert and Mike Pouncey were unable to play, leaving their respective holes at left tackle and center for Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Rams. The Dolphins moved rookie left guard Laremy Tunsil to left tackle for the game, but he was injured during the game and was unable to continue to play. The availability for any of the three players in Week 12 is unknown.
The Dolphins did not have to make a corresponding roster move to add Harris following the suspension of defensive end Jason Jones for violation of the league’s substance abuse policy.
