Crowder put on IR with foot problem

Associated Press

DAVIE, Fla. -- Miami Dolphins linebacker Channing Crowder has been placed on injured reserve with a right foot injury, officially ending his season.

Crowder had already been ruled out of Sunday's regular-season finale against Pittsburgh. He was hurt on the second play of last week's loss to Houston.

A decision regarding whether Crowder needs surgery will be made after the swelling in his foot goes down. Reggie Torbor will replace Crowder in the starting lineup.
