Dolphins RT Austin Jackson leaves Week 1 game with injury

·1 min read

The Miami Dolphins suffered their first injury of the 2022 NFL season, and it came at an important position.

In the second quarter in the season opener against the New England Patriots, Dolphins right tackle Austin Jackson was rolled up on by fullback Alec Ingold. While Jackson stayed in for the next play, he then went to the sideline and was taken into the blue injury tent.

After some evaluation, he was taken back to the locker room, and the team announced that the injury is to his ankle.

In his place, the Dolphins have turned to backup swing tackle Greg Little. With Tua Tagovailoa being a left-handed quarterback, the right tackle spot will be something to watch going forward.
