The Miami Dolphins offensive line has been plagued by injuries this season. Starting tackle Austin Jackson has played in just two games all year due to health issues, and he's now headed back to the injured reserve list with an ankle problem.

Miami has moved quickly to bolster its O-line depth after losing Jackson.

The Dolphins are signing former No. 1 overall pick Eric Fisher to their active roster. Jackson was officially placed on IR to open up a roster spot for the veteran lineman.

Fisher enjoyed a successful eight-year run with the Kansas City Chiefs to begin his career after being selected by the team in the 2013 NFL Draft. The Central Michigan product earned two Pro Bowl nods and returned halfway through the 2019 campaign to give KC a huge boost en route to a Super Bowl win.

Unfortunately, Fisher suffered a torn Achilles in January 2021. Though he rehabbed and was able to play 15 games for the Indianapolis Colts the following season, he didn't quite play up to his standards.

Now Fisher gets to play a big role on another AFC contender. Given how the Dolphins and Chiefs have performed this year, there's a chance the left tackle gets to face his ex-team in the postseason.
