There was a report from Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald that Ajayi was upset about being pushed out of the No. 1 spot on the depth chart by Arian Foster, but Gase said Monday that this week brings a fresh start for Ajayi.
“We’re back to basically, he’s back in meetings, he’s back in the building,” Gase said, via the Herald. “We left him back. That was my decision. We’ve cleaned that up. We’ve moved past that. This is a new day for him today.”
Ajayi was left home in favor of Kenyan Drake and Damien Williams, both of whom see special teams time on gamedays. Ajayi doesn’t have the same responsibilities, so the team will need to make an overall change to the makeup of the roster if he’s going to be active.
Gase also said that wide receiver DeVante Parker, who is battling a hamstring injury, was “close” to being active, so there could be multiple changes to the offensive roster for the trip to New England.
