Dolphins signed G/T Jeff Linkenbach, formerly of the Chiefs.

Linkenbach can play both guard spots and right tackle in a pinch. He has 36 career starts under his belt with most of those coming with the Colts from 2010-2013. Even with Miami needing guard help, Linkenbach is unlikely to start.

Free agent G/T Jeff Linkenbach will visit the Dolphins on Wednesday.

Miami will host a number of veteran free-agent guards on Wednesday, including Linkenbach and Jeff Baca. Household names, we know. Linkenbach, 28 in June, has started 36 games for the Colts and Chiefs the past five seasons.

Chiefs signed G/T Jeff Linkenbach.

It's a decent pickup for a team that has lost Branden Albert, Jon Asamoah, and Geoff Schwartz since the start of free agency. Linkenbach isn't overly effective, but can play both guard and tackle and has made 33 starts for the Colts over the last four years. He turns 27 in June.

Colts G/T Jeff Linkenbach is week to week with a quad injury.

Linkenbach has made four starts this season, including Sunday at right guard. Linkenbach has played 321 total snaps in 2013. It's possible he'll be sent to injured reserve.

Colts re-signed restricted free agent G/T Jeff Linkenbach to a one-year, $1.323 million contract.

Linkenbach, 26 in July, made eight starts in 2012, four at left guard and four at right tackle. After he struggled mightily as both a pass and run blocker, it was surprising the Colts gave Linkenbach a restricted tender at all. The Colts will bring back 6-foot-6, 311-pound Linkenbach as a swing backup.

Colts tendered restricted free agent G/T Jeff Linkenbach at the original-round level.

Linkenbach is capable of playing both guard and tackle, but has consistently struggled when inserted into the starting lineup. The Colts have to be hoping he doesn't approach the 12 starts he's averaged the past two seasons in 2013.

The Colts have moved Jeff Linkenbach from tackle to guard.

He'll compete with Joe Reitz for the starting left guard job in training camp. Linkenbach got destroyed in 16 starts at left and right tackle last year, and the Colts should hope he doesn't get back into the lineup this season.

Jeff Linkenbach appears to be locked in as the Colts' starting right tackle.

The starting offensive line looks like Anthony Castonzo, Joe Reitz, Jeff Saturday, Ryan Diem, and Linkenbach from left to right. Castonzo held up well in pass protection against Green Bay's blitz while Linkenbach keyed a successful ground attack. Joseph Addai and Delone Carter, Indy's top two backs, have averaged 4.75 yards per carry this preseason.

The Colts' first training camp depth chart lists Jeff Linkenbach as the starting left tackle.

First-rounder Anthony Castonzo won't be handed the starting job without a fight. It's interesting to note second-rounder Ben Ijalana is listed as the backup right tackle. Jacques McClendon is the starter at left guard. We'd like to see both early-round rookies starting by Week 1.
