All three of the running backs on the Dolphins' active roster have tested positive for COVID-19, according to multiple reports.
Myles Gaskin (154 attempts) and Salvon Ahmed (54 attempts) were each placed on Miami's COVID-19 list during the bye week after testing positive, per multiple reports. And Phillip Lindsay (12 attempts), who missed Miami's last game due to an ankle injury, also tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported.
The story said it's possible they could clear the NFL's protocols for returning to action in time to play against the Jets on Sunday, but it's not a guarantee for any of the players. Brown (33 attempts) remains on injured reserve and has missed the last six games due to a quad injury but the story said the team is hopeful he can practice this week.
MIA RB Malcolm Brown - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 7 vs. Atlanta Falcons
Malcolm Brown ran once for 16 yards and then another four times for eight yards while catching one pass last week. Brown is in a three-way backfield in Miami, which limits his production by a lot. He's averaging less than 20 rush yards per game, and has just two receptions on the year. He's not worth playing this week despite the favorable matchup against the Falcons.
