Dolphins released OL Artis Hicks from injured reserve.
Per the Miami Herald, Hicks had his contract terminated for "failure to disclose an existing neck injury." Hicks was projected to start at right guard before going down in August. An 11-year veteran with extensive experience at both guard and tackle, Hicks could latch on elsewhere before season's end if he's healthy. Tue, Sep 25, 2012 08:18:00 PM

Dolphins placed OL Artis Hicks (neck) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Projected to start at right guard over enigma John Jerry, Hicks appears to have aggravated a mid-August neck injury. Jerry came down with an undisclosed injury in the preseason finale, leaving the position in flux entering the season. Turning 34 in November, Hicks may be hitting the end of the line as an NFL player.

The Palm Beach Post confirms Artis Hicks ran ahead of John Jerry as the starting right guard for most of the Dolphins' offseason program.

Jerry had a chance to nail down a starting job after the Dolphins let veteran Vernon Carey walk, but isn't ready to shed his "bust" label just yet. It will bode extremely poorly for Jerry's Miami future if he can't overtake Hicks in camp.

Artis Hicks has been working as the Dolphins' starting right guard this offseason.

It's no surprise the veteran is already beating out former third-round bust John Jerry. According to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, "there are concerns" about Jerry's playing weight and ability to pull effectively in the new zone-blocking scheme. The Sun-Sentinel also suggests Miami hasn't ruled out signing veteran free agent Jake Scott, who visited for the second time last week.

Dolphins G/T Artis Hicks has been lining up exclusively at tackle in OTAs.

With Lydon Murtha expected to get the first crack at swing tackle duties behind LT Jake Long and RT Jonathan Martin, it means Hicks is fourth on the depth chart. Hicks could still end up seeing time at right guard if the Dolphins don't like what they see from John Jerry in camp.

Dolphins signed G/T Artis Hicks to a one-year, $2 million contract.

Hicks' best days are behind him at age 33, but his versatility appeals to a Dolphins team searching for a new right tackle and right guard. Most likely, Hicks will provide insurance in case John Jerry isn't ready for a full-time role.

Free agent G/T Artis Hicks is reportedly meeting with the Dolphins on Wednesday.

The Dolphins have openings at right guard and right tackle. Hicks has experience at both spots and could play a swing role if necessary. He was relegated to a backup role in Cleveland last season.

Artis Hicks is starting at right tackle Sunday with Tony Pashos (ankle) inactive.

Oniel Cousins was expected to get the start, but the Browns know he would have gotten whipped by highly-athletic Colts LE Robert Mathis. Hicks isn't much better, but he has a little more mobility. We're expecting a run-heavy attack for the Browns today. Other inactives: QB Thaddeus Lewis, WR Carlton Mitchell, S Eric Hagg, LB Titus Brown, OL Steve Vallos and TE Jordan Cameron.

Browns agreed to terms with T/G Artis Hicks.

The Redskins had no luck finding a trade partner. Hicks offers the versatility to play tackle or guard. With the Browns, he's veteran insurance for rookie Jason Pinkston at left guard.

The Redskins are reportedly trying to trade T/G Artis Hicks.

Hicks is due $1.15 million, and the Redskins would prefer to carry a younger lineman as a backup. The Vikings are desperate for help at guard and tackle and may be interested in reuniting with Hicks.
Sat, Sep 3, 2011 03:19:00 PM

The Redskins reportedly plan to reinstall veteran Artis Hicks as a starting guard.

Hicks lost his starting job while playing through thigh and groin injuries last season. The plan is for Kory Lichensteiger or Will Montgomery to compete with Casey Rabach at center while the Redskins target a free agent guard to start opposite Hicks.

Redskins RG Artis Hicks was benched in the second quarter of Sunday's loss to the Vikings.

Hicks came into the game nursing groin and thigh injuries, but started. However, he only lasted a quarter before catching coach Mike Shanahan's eye by getting beat. Will Montgomery came on.

Redskins RG Artis Hicks did not return to the field to start the second half of Sunday's game.

He was replaced by OG Will Montgomery. Update: Hicks is out with an undisclosed illness, and his return is questionable.
Sun, Oct 3, 2010 05:59:00 PM

Artis Hicks is currently slated to start at right tackle for the Redskins.

It's interesting that tackle Stephon Heyer is moving to a reserve role rather than right guard Mike Williams. Heyer certainly hasn't done anything earn a starting job, but neither has Williams. Hicks remains likely to see time at both spots this season.
Tue, May 18, 2010 10:49:00 PM

Artis Hicks opened Redskins practice this week as the starting right tackle.

The rest of the line was: LT Stephon Heyer, LG Derrick Dockery, C Casey Rabach, and RG Mike Williams. If the Redskins select a left tackle with the fourth pick, Hicks is expected to move to right guard with Heyer moving to right tackle. This will be a below-average unit regardless.
