Dolphins CB Al Harris' tenure in his hometown of Miami lasted just three games this season.

According to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, the Dolphins will place Harris on injured reserve.

Harris, a 13-year veteran, was signed as a free agent on Nov. 10 after the Packers released him from their physically-unable-to-perform list. In three games with the Dolphins, Harris recorded three tackles playing in the team's nickel package.

He missed Sunday's loss to the Browns with a hamstring injury.

The way we see it

This is sad news for a guy attempting to make a comeback late in the season. After starting all 16 games from 2003-2007, Harris may be coming to the end of his career. Rookie CB Nolan Carroll played the team's nickel corner position with Harris out, and considering the Dolphins are likely out of the playoff hunt, he may continue to get some snaps there and gain some experience.
