Guard Josh Sitton of the Miami Dolphins will miss the rest of the season because of a torn rotator cuff in his left shoulder, according to multiple media reports.

Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald first reported the news.

The 32-year-old Sitton tore his rotator cuff in the second half of Sunday’s victory over the Tennessee Titans, but did not come out of the game, playing all 58 of the Dolphins’ offensive snaps.

The four-time Pro Bowl selection, who was first-team All-Pro in 2014, will have surgery to repair the tear.

The 6-3, 320-pound Sitton, who formerly played for the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers, was signed to a two-year contract by the Dolphins during the offseason to bolster a struggling offensive line.

Sitton was selected by the Packers in the fourth round (No. 135 overall) out of Central Florida in the 2008 draft and played for Green Bay’s Super Bowl XLV champions during his eight seasons with the team.

In 2015, Sitton criticized head coach Mike McCarthy’s game plan after a game and he was released the following September. He signed with the Bears and after he played two seasons in Chicago, the team declined to exercise the option on his contract and he signed a free-agent deal with the Dolphins.

Sitton, considered the Dolphins’ best run blocker, will be replaced by veteran Ted Larson, who started eight games for Miami last season.
