Quarterback David Garrard was released by the Dolphins on Tuesday, the day all NFL teams had to be in compliance with the salary cap.

Garrard entered training camp as the No. 1 quarterback on Miami’s depth chart after sitting out the 2011 season to rehab from back surgery.

He suffered a knee injury in the preseason and didn’t return to action as rookie Ryan Tannehill claimed the starting job.

Garrard suffered a knee injury he said occurred walking around his home and required surgery that cost more than three weeks of practice.

Garrard will still count $1 million toward the Dolphins’ 2012 salary cap.

Matt Moore, who ended the 2011 season as Miami’s starting quarterback, is Tannehill’s backup.
