The Dolphins’ tenuous running back situation took another turn early this morning when the team announced that running back Jay Ajayi won’t practice.
It’s not known if it’s a day-to-day thing or in any way symptomatic of the knee injury that caused his draft stock to fall a year ago. Since arriving in Miami, Ajayi has maintained that his knee is a “non-issue,” according to his doctors. Some have speculated his knee is bone-on-bone and could markedly shorten his career.
As the story said, if Ajayi is back Tuesday it's a non-issue, but with the hype Arian Foster has been getting, this is the last thing Ajayi needs if he wants to win the RB1 job for the Dolphins. This is one of the bigger camp battles to follow this year it seems and we'll continue to keep you updated.
