Dolphins RB Isaiah Pead (hamstring) will miss "at least" two weeks.

Pead's star-crossed career continues. Coming on strong at Dolphins training camp, Pead earned first-team snaps behind Arian Foster and Jay Ajayi in the regular season dress rehearsal before going down. With final cuts on the horizon, Pead couldn't have suffered this injury at a worse time.
Aug 28 - 3:33 PM

Dolphins RB Isaiah Pead exited Thursday night's third preseason game with a "tight" hamstring, but could have returned.

Pead entered the night as the Dolphins' clear No. 3 back, seeing some reps with the first-team offense before exiting on Miami's first possession of the second half. Before leaving, Pead rushed one time for one yard and caught all three of his targets for 14 yards. Injuries were part of Pead's early-career downfall, but it appears he escaped tonight with little more than a nick.

Coach Adam Gase said he's been "very impressed" with RB Isaiah Pead.

"Every time he gets in the game, he seems to pop one," Gase said. "When he gets in the game, I’m thinking, ‘Let’s call plays for him and try to give him a chance to show his skill set.' It just seems like, when he gets in there, whether run game or pass game, he seems to make something happen." Pead has rushed 14 times for 98 yards through two preseason games, adding two catches for 27 yards. Pead received some first-team reps Friday night against the Cowboys and seems to have a good grip on the No. 3 running back job with rookie Kenyan Drake sidelined for weeks with an injury.
Aug 20 - 9:02 PM

Dolphins signed RB Isaiah Pead.

Pead has two offensive touches since the end of the 2013 season. Even for the RB-desperate Dolphins, he's a camp body with almost no shot at cracking the 53-man roster. An absolute mega-bust as a 2012 second rounder, Pead has never scored an NFL touchdown.
Mar 31 - 3:31 PM

Steelers waived RB Isaiah Pead.

He signed with Pittsburgh after Le'Veon Bell's season-ending MCL tear but never saw the field. Fitzgerald Toussaint will replace him on the active roster. Pead's NFL career is hanging on by a thread.

Steelers signed RB Isaiah Pead.

The ex-Ram will provide end-of-roster depth behind DeAngelo Williams, Dri Archer, Jordan Todman and Roosevelt Nix after Le'Veon Bell (MCL) was sent to injured reserve. There are no fantasy ripples here.

Free agent RB Isaiah Pead will work out for the Steelers Monday.

If it goes well, he could take the roster spot of Le'Veon Bell, who is expected to be placed on season-ending injured reserve with a torn MCL. Pead has shown nothing in the NFL, and he will be seldom-used depth behind new starter DeAngelo Williams if he signs.

Free agent RB Isaiah Pead worked out for the Jets on Tuesday.

It's Pead's first known workout since he was cut by the Rams last month. The former No. 50 overall pick showed nothing as a running back in St. Louis.

Rams waived RB Isaiah Pead.

It's a miracle Pead lasted in St. Louis as long as he did. With Todd Gurley back at full strength, Pead's time finally ran out. The former second-round pick will likely be greeted by crickets in free agency.

ESPN Rams reporter Nick Wagoner projects Rams RB/KR Isaiah Pead as a cut.

It remains stunning that Pead has yet to be released. Pead has been a comprehensive bust since the Rams selected him with the No. 50 overall pick of the 2012 draft. He's unlikely to survive until final cuts in training camp.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch concedes Rams RB Isaiah Pead's roster spot is in trouble.

We're shocked Pead has lasted as long as he has on the Rams' roster. Perhaps the team is showing compassion as he recovers from a torn ACL. One of many running backs Jeff Fisher's Rams have taken early in the draft, Pead has been by far the least successful. The No. 50 overall selection of the 2012 draft has zero career touchdowns.

Isaiah Pead (knee) is expected to be ready for training camp.

Pead is eight months removed from ACL surgery. When healthy, he’ll be no higher than the No. 4 back. The Rams can save $941,000 by releasing Pead.

The Rams can save $941,000 against the cap by releasing RB Isaiah Pead this offseason.

St. Louis shouldn't have much trouble getting under the salary cap, but cutting Pead, who has mostly been a non-factor during his tenure with the Rams, seems like a no-brainer. The former second-round pick missed all of last season after injuring his knee in a preseason game. Even if Pead was healthy, he'd only be fourth on the team's depth chart behind Tre Mason, Benny Cunningham and Zac Stacy. Pead's future doesn't look like it's in St. Louis.

Rams RB Isaiah Pead (torn ACL) has cleared waivers, and reverted to injured reserve.

Pead is signed through 2015, but didn't show enough through his first two years in the league for a team to take a chance as he recovers from a major knee injury. Pead will be on the outside looking in of the 53-man roster next summer.
