  • Dolphins' Salvon Ahmed: Doubtful to face Denver

    Ahmed (groin) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's Week 3 game against the Broncos, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Ahmed was forced to leave last Sunday night's game against the Patriots early with the injury. With Jeff Wilson (abdomen) still on injured reserve, it looks like exciting rookie De'Von Achane will have a chance to carve out a change-of-pace role behind locked-in lead back Raheem Mostert.

  • Dolphins' Salvon Ahmed: Missing first two Week 3 practices

    Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel said Ahmed (groin) won't practice Wednesday or Thursday, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    McDaniel didn't rule Ahmed out for Sunday's game against Denver but also didn't exactly sound optimistic about Ahmed's chances of suiting up this weekend while noting that rookie running back De'Von Achane is ready for a role in the offense. Ahmed exited early during the Week 2 win over New England in which starting back Raheem Mostert rumbled for 121 rushing yards and two touchdowns. Ahmed's groin injury could open the door for Achane to settle in as the No. 2 option on a more permanent basis, albeit with the potential complicating factor of Jeff Wilson (abdomen) coming off injured reserve at some point after Week 4. None of Ahmed, Achane or Wilson holds much fantasy value with Mostert healthy, but history suggests the 31-year-old won't last an entire season taking double-digit carries each week.

  • Dolphins' Salvon Ahmed: Injury severity downplayed

    Coach Mike McDaniel said Monday that Ahmed's groin injury is "not [an] overly long situation," Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

    McDaniel also ruled out a groin tear. It looks as though Ahmed has a chance of being back on the field for Week 3's matchup against the Broncos, though his availability ultimately will depend on how much work he's able to get done on the practice field. Prior to leaving Sunday's win over the Patriots in the second quarter, Ahmed was putting together a relatively productive showing (six touches, 41 total yards) behind Raheem Mostert.

  • Dolphins' Salvon Ahmed: Managing groin issue

    Ahmed is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Patriots due to a groin injury.

    Ahmed put together a relatively productive first half prior to exiting with his injury in the second quarter, as he rushed three times for 13 yards while securing all three of his targets for 28 yards. It's unclear whether he'll be available during the second half, but De'Von Achane could see increased playing time if Ahmed can't return.

  • Dolphins' Salvon Ahmed: Plays second fiddle in Week 1

    Ahmed took three carries for 11 yards during Sunday's 36-34 win over the Chargers. He failed to secure any of his three targets.

    Ahmed worked as the clear top backup to Raheem Mostert in Miami's regular-season opener as rookie De'Von Achane was inactive, but he ultimately saw little work. Miami rarely leaned on its backfield due to the contest's game script, which saw Tua Tagovailoa focus on Tyreek Hill and the receiving game while mostly playing catch-up -- the Dolphins didn't play a single offensive snap with a lead. only moving ahead on the final play. Week 2's divisional matchup against the Patriots could allow the team to deploy a more balanced offensive plan, though Achane could also be involved by that point.

  • Dolphins' Salvon Ahmed: Should be clear top backup Week 1

    Ahmed is slated to serve as the Dolphins' No. 2 running back for Sunday's game against the Chargers with Miami likely to make rookie De'Von Achane inactive for the contest, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Achane was a full participant in practice throughout the week but apparently still needs more time to heal up from the shoulder injury he sustained in an Aug. 19 preseason game against the Texans, so the Dolphins will delay the rookie third-round pick's NFL debut. Though Ahmed had already been listed ahead of Achane on the depth chart, the latter's absence for Week 1 clears up any lingering concern about which of the two might work as the primary backup to starting running back Raheem Mostert. Pelissero relays that Mostert and Ahmed will "carry the load" for the Dolphins on Sunday, while Miami may also keep undrafted rookie Chris Brooks active as a third option out of the backfield.

  • Dolphins' Salvon Ahmed: No limitations in practice

    Ahmed (back) was a full practice participant Wednesday, Cameron Wolfe of NFL Network reports.

    Ahmed missed about a week of practice with a back/neck injury suffered in the Dolphins' final preseason game. He could be anywhere between second and fourth on the depth chart for Sunday's opener against the Chargers, as there's no clear order behind starting running back Raheem Mostert with Jeff Wilson (abdomen) on injured reserve. Ahmed can at least be considered a slight favorite for the No. 2 role, considering that's where he's listed on the Dolphins' unofficial depth chart after repping ahead of De'Von Achane and Chris Brooks for most of training camp and the preseason.
