Coach Adam Gase suggested Arian Foster (groin) is not going to play Thursday night against the Bengals.

"We're going to make sure he's at the right place for us," Gase said. It was never likely Foster would return on a short week, but he could make it back for the Dolphins' Week 5 clash with the Titans. Miami will again turn to an underwhelming committee featuring Kenyan Drake, Jay Ajayi, Damien Williams, and Isaiah Pead. This is a situation to avoid.

Arian Foster (groin) has been ruled out for Week 3 versus Cleveland.

He should be considered week to week. Dolphins coach Adam Gase said Friday that he hadn't figured out which running back will start in Foster's place. The Fins have four other backs on their 53: Jay Ajayi, Damien Williams, Isaiah Pead, and Kenyan Drake. None of them is a reliable Week 3 fantasy play.
Sep 23 - 2:03 PM

Arian Foster (groin) wasn't present for the portion of Friday's practice that was open to the media.

He hasn't practiced all week and is headed for another DNP on Friday. Unless something miraculous happens, Foster won't be on the field for Week 3 against the Browns. Expect Jay Ajayi to get the lion's share of carries with rookie Kenyan Drake playing a change-of-pace role on Sunday.
Sep 23 - 1:07 PM

Arian Foster (groin) remained absent from Dolphins practice Thursday.

There's yet to be a reason to expect Foster to suit up against the Browns. The Dolphins will hold him out of a cakewalk matchup with an eye toward getting him 100 percent for Week 4. Jay Ajayi will lead a committee in Foster's absence.
Sep 22 - 1:37 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Arian Foster (groin) is a "long shot" to play Week 3 against the Browns.

Foster's injury isn't believed to be serious, but expect the Dolphins to err on the side of caution with him, especially this week against a lowly Browns team. RapSheet reports there's a "chance" he plays Week 4. With Foster likely to sit, Jay Ajayi will get the start with Kenyan Drake and Damien Williams to follow.
Sep 21 - 2:07 PM

Arian Foster (groin) is not practicing Wednesday.

Foster hasn't practiced on Wednesdays all month, so it's hard to read too deep into this one. However, it doesn't sound like he'll play Week 3 against the Browns after straining his groin early in the Week 2 loss at New England. If he sits, Jay Ajayi and Kenyan Drake will lead a backfield committee.
Sep 21 - 1:34 PM

ESPN's Dan Graziano reports the Dolphins are "cautiously optimistic" about Arian Foster's (groin) Week 3 status.

Per Graziano, Foster is unlikely to practice Wednesday, but the Dolphins had already been giving Foster Wednesdays off. This being Foster, it would be unwise to form a concrete opinion about his weekend status until Friday, or perhaps even Sunday. Owners definitely need to be making other plans in the event he doesn't suit up. Jay Ajayi, Kenyan Drake and Damien Williams form a committee if Foster doesn't go.
Sep 20 - 6:24 PM

Arian Foster's injury is believed to be a groin strain.

Per Tom Pelissero of USA Today, Foster's status for Sunday is "iffy" but he shouldn't miss more than a game or two. Foster hasn't shown much through two weeks, averaging a mere 2.9 yards per carry on 16 rushing attempts. Jay Ajayi would likely draw the start if Foster has to sit out against Cleveland in Week 3.
Sep 20 - 12:38 PM

Dolphins coach Adam Gase says Arian Foster (groin) is day to day.

Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reported Monday morning that Foster was expected to miss at least one game. That could still be true though it doesn't look like Gase is ready to rule him out for Week 3. Gase said he isn't sure if Foster will practice on Wednesday. If Foster can't go for next week's game against the Browns, the Dolphins would likely turn to a committee featuring Jay Ajayi and Kenyan Drake.
Sep 19 - 2:43 PM

The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports the Dolphins are concerned Arian Foster (groin) will miss "at minimum" one game.

Foster suffered a groin injury early in the Week 2 loss to the Patriots and did not return. The team should know more after a Monday MRI. With Foster on the shelf at least a week and likely more, the Dolphins will turn to a committee headed by Jay Ajayi. Ajayi has not done much to engender goodwill among the fantasy community and lost a fumble against the Pats, but he does get the Browns this week.
Sep 19 - 8:09 AM

Arian Foster (groin) will not return to Miami's Week 2 game against the Patriots.

Foster took the rock just three times for nine yards before pulling up lame. Considering his history of soft-tissue injuries, his Week 3 status should be considered highly up in the air. Jay Ajayi is carrying the mail in Foster's absence, but has already lost a soft fumble.
Sep 18 - 2:55 PM

Arian Foster is questionable to return to Sunday's Week 2 game with a groin injury.

Jay Ajayi is active this week and picking up snaps. We'll have more info on Foster when more info is available.
Sep 18 - 2:08 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Arian Foster (hamstring, questionable) is "good to go" for Week 2 against the Patriots.

Foster was held out of Wednesday's session, but he practiced in full Thursday and Friday. There never was any real concern about his availability. He is a back-end RB2 as the clear lead runner for the Dolphins.
Sep 18 - 8:23 AM

Arian Foster (hamstring) is questionable for Week 2 against the Patriots.

Foster got the day off on Wednesday but has practiced fully the last two days. There's no concern about his status for Week 2. Foster is coming off a disappointing debut but should see enough work to warrant RB2 consideration against New England.
