Ogbah says he's been medically cleared to compete after suffering a torn triceps last season, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.
Ogbah suffered the injury in Week 9 last season and finished 2022 on IR. Despite being cleared, the Dolphins have been taking it easy with him so far, according to Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com, who also notes that Ogbah would have been able to play again last season had the Dolphins advanced further in the playoffs.

Recovery sounds encouraging
Head coach Mike McDaniel said that Ogbah has been "recovering soundly" from his torn triceps, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.
Ogbah, who tore his triceps back in November, is anticipated to be ready to go for the start of OTAs in May. It was previously reported that the 29-year-old could've played if the Dolphins had advanced past the wild-card round, per Cameron Wolfe of NFL Network, so Ogbah should be either at or near full strength to begin the offseason.
Would have played moving forward
Ogbah (triceps) was expected to be cleared to play if the Dolphins advanced in the postseason, Cameron Wolfe of NFL Network reports.
As the Dolphins players cleared out their lockers Monday, Ogbah said that the plan was for him to return from his triceps injury in the AFC divisional round if the the team had beaten Buffalo on Sunday. It appears as if the defensive end should have no issue being ready to go for the start of training camp this summer. Ogbah appeared in nine games in 2022, recording 11 tackles, including one sack.
