Dolphins waived RT Jason Fox.
Pressed into duty after Ja'Wuan James injured his toe, Fox was extraordinarily bad on Ryan Tannehill's right side. It's unusual for a team to release an 11-game starter at this stage of the (off)season, but Fox wasn't in the Dolphins' 2016 plans. His release creates $1.4 million in cap space. Fox turns 28 in May. He'll search for swing work on the open market. Jan 12 - 4:21 PM

Dolphins OT Jason Fox (concussion) was back at practice on Thursday.

His participation level will be updated after practice, but this is a good sign for Fox's Week 1 status. LT Branden Albert (knee) is expected to play.

Dolphins OT Jason Fox is sidelined with a concussion.

It leaves Miami's fill-in left tackle highly questionable for this weekend's regular season dress rehearsal. With starter Branden Albert (knee) still not ready, Ryan Tannehill could have to take snaps behind his third-string blindside protector.
Tue, Aug 25, 2015 01:36:00 PM

Dolphins re-signed OT Jason Fox to a two-year, $2.5 million contract.

Fox appeared in five games as a backup last season. As a versatile player who can play both tackle positions, the Dolphins felt he was worth keeping. Fox turns 27 in May.

Dolphins signed OT Jason Fox, formerly of the Lions, to a one-year contract.

Fox (6-foot-6, 314) won the Lions starting right tackle job out of camp last summer but suffered a groin injury in Week 1 before losing the gig to LaAdrian Waddle. The 26-year-old (in May) is an above-average pass blocker and is now penciled in as Miami's starting right tackle. He'll certainly be part of a camp battle.

Free agent OT Jason Fox will visit the Dolphins.

The Dolphins currently have no one penciled in at right tackle. Fox played his college ball at the University of Miami and is just 25 years old, but he profiles as a swing tackle at best. He would be a depth signing to play behind a rookie.

Free agent OT Jason Fox is visiting the Chiefs on Monday.

Kansas City's offensive line is starved for depth after Geoff Schwartz, Jon Asamoah, and Branden Albert all walked. The old backups become the new starters, leaving little behind. Fox, 25, is athletic enough to "swing" between both left tackle and right tackle, but played the right side in Detroit.

Lions RT Jason Fox (groin) remained sidelined at practice Friday.

Fox was injured in the second quarter of last Sunday's opener against the Vikings. Swing tackle Corey Hilliard will start in his place against Arizona.
Fri, Sep 13, 2013 11:45:00 AM

Lions starting RT Jason Fox (groin) is not practicing Wednesday.

Fox went down in the second quarter of Sunday's win over the Vikings and did not return. Backup Corey Hilliard came on and struggled badly in pass protection.
Wed, Sep 11, 2013 12:48:00 PM

Lions RT Jason Fox left Sunday's game with a groin injury.

He's questionable to return. Corey Hilliard is replacing Fox at right tackle. With LaAdrian Waddle inactive, the Lions can't afford any more injuries to the offensive line.
Sun, Sep 8, 2013 01:39:00 PM

Jason Fox has nearly sewn up the Lions starting right tackle job.

Fox has beaten out Corey Hilliard and undrafted rookie LaAdrian Waddle. He'll slide into the vacancy created by Gosder Cherilus' departure, leaving Hilliard as a swing tackle on Sundays. Fox has appeared in just five games during his three-year NFL career.
Tue, Aug 27, 2013 08:25:00 AM

The Lions' website gives Jason Fox the "slight edge" to win the starting right tackle job.

A fourth-round pick in 2010, Fox has appeared in just five career games and dealt with injuries in each of his first three seasons. Now that he's finally healthy, he'll compete for playing time with Corey Hilliard in training camp. Despite his limited experience, Fox is considered the favorite to start.
Sat, Jul 20, 2013 07:28:00 PM

Lions OTs Jason Fox and Corey Hilliard will split reps equally at right tackle in training camp.

Both players split reps during OTAs and minicamp, and that will continue over the summer as the Lions look for one of the two to step into Gosder Cherilus' old position. "We'll keep them as equal as we can and let guys work with different groups," offensive coordinator Scott Linehan said. Fox has been viewed as the favorite to win the job, but he has never started an NFL game.

DetroitLions.com's Tim Twentyman suggests Jason Fox is the leading candidate to start at right tackle.

Fox, a 2010 fourth-rounder, has appeared in all of five career games, and he's expected to compete with Corey Hilliard for the job. After the Lions experienced some of the best O-line continuity over the past few years, they'll be employing three new starters up front at left and right tackle and right guard.
Sun, May 26, 2013 10:59:00 AM

Lions re-signed restricted free agent OT Jason Fox to a one-year, $1.323 million contract.

He was tendered at the original-round level. Fox is expected to be in the mix for the Lions' right tackle job, but injuries have limited the 2010 fourth-round pick to just five appearances in three years. He needs to stay healthy before the Lions lean on him for a significant role.
