One week after the Miami Dolphins signed offensive guard Ryan Durand, the team announced on Tuesday the decision to waive the veteran offensive lineman. Durand, 27, was declared inactive for Sunday's game against the Seahawks in his only week with the team.
A seventh-round selection of the Tennessee Titans in the 2009 NFL Draft, Durand has been active for just one game during his NFL career. During Sunday's game against the Seahawks, the Dolphins offensive line allowed quarterback Ryan Tannehill to be sacked just one time, while paving the way for 189 yards rushing as a team with two touchdowns on the ground.
Following the move, the Dolphins have an open roster spot, but have not announced a signing to fill the void. The team will host the New England Patriots on Sunday before traveling to face the San Francisco 49ers in the subsequent week. At 5-6 through 12 weeks, the Dolphins trail the Steelers by one game for the final Wild Card spot of the AFC and trail the Patriots by three games for the AFC East title.
