The Miami Dolphins may be without their top backup offensive lineman heading into the 2015 season. That's because Nate Garner, who can play every position on the line, has been dealing with a condition that the team describes as severe headaches. This piece of information comes courtesy of Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.
Garner was knocked out cold in Week 10 against the Detroit Lions. About a month later, after missing the next several games, he was placed on injured reserve. The Dolphins can cut him, which would save approximately $1.6 million dollars but the team prefers that he comes back to provide stability and depth on the line.
Garner is 32 years old and played college football at Arkansas. He was drafted by the New York Jets in the seventh round of the 2008 NFL Draft but was released before the 2009 season He was soon signed by the Dolphins and has been with the team ever since.
