I guess the Dolphins feel that he was on the bubble and being out for nearly a month would be too much for him to overcome. Good luck to him. I really liked him coming out of the draft back in 2013.
After he was moved to injured reserve last week, D.J. Fluker and the Dolphins are officially parting ways.
Miami released Fluker with an injury settlement, the team announced on Monday. That makes Fluker a free agent and eligible to sign with any team.
Fluker had arthroscopic knee surgery to repair his meniscus last week. He’s slated to be out for 3-4 weeks while recovering from the injury. NFL Media’s Tom Pelissero reported a few days ago that the Dolphins were expected to give Fluker an injury settlement.
