    Dolphins FB Konrad undergoes surgery for thigh infection

    MIAMI - Miami Dolphins fullback Rob Konrad underwent surgery to remove a bursal infection in his right thigh, the team announced on Tuesday.

    Miami braced for the possible loss of Konrad by claiming fullback Jamar Martin off waivers from Dallas. Martin played in 14 games for the Cowboys last season

    Konrad, a starter since his rookie year in 1999, will miss Miami's season opener against Tennessee.

    Team physician Dr. George Caldwell performed the surgery at Broward General Medical Center in Fort Lauderdale.

    Konrad suffered a bruised knee in training camp and did not travel to New Orleans for the team's final preseason game due to the staph infection.

    Konrad had just four carries for 17 yards and caught 16 passes for 166 yards last season.
