Dolphins’ Garner placed on injured reserve

Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Nate Garner has been placed on
injured reserve with a left foot injury, meaning he’ll miss the
season.

Garner underwent surgery more than two weeks ago. He started
eight games at guard last year and had been listed as a backup
tackle during training camp.

Defensive end Phillip Merling was placed on the reserve
non-football injury list Tuesday. He suffered an Achilles’ tendon
injury in July.
