Konrad gone

Fullback Rob Konrad's season officially came to an end on Wednesday when he was placed on injured reserve because of a back injury. The question now is whether he has played his last down with the Dolphins.

Konrad is signed through next season, but he carries a price tag of more than $1 million, and that's a lot of money for a little-used fullback.

The other issue is that Konrad is not a great blocking back, so he might become expendable if the next coach of the Dolphins wants a blocking specialist at the position.

To take Konrad's place on the active roster, the Dolphins signed off the Indianapolist Colts practice squad defensive back Deandre Eiland.

A rookie out of South Carolina, Eiland was a sixth-round pick of the Vikings in April but didn't make the active roster.
