Running back Arian Foster was back on the field for the Dolphins Thursday after sitting out Wednesday’s practice.

Foster was listed on the team’s practice report as being sidelined by a hamstring issue, although it sounds like injury prevention was the real reason why he sat out. Coach Adam Gase said that Foster may sit out Wednesdays all season as the team tries to keep him on the field on gamedays.

“That’s probably going to be a weekly thing with him,” Gase said, via ESPN.com. “We’re going to be smart as far as how we handle him from a practice standpoint. Going full pads, I don’t think he’s a guy who really needs full contact.”

Defensive end Mario Williams‘ absence from practice continued on Thursday and precaution isn’t the reason for that one. Williams suffered a concussion last Sunday and remains in the league’s protocol a few days ahead of their trip to New England for Week Two.

    Patriots have a better record with a back up QB than the Dolphins do with their starting QB that has to sting.

    Patriots winning Sunday proves what everyone has known for years…Brady is an overrated system QB and would fail without Bellycheck

    over the hill RB.
    the dolphins is like the jets – picking up over-the-hill players and hope they’ll perform. These guys are now in for collecting checks…

    Arian Foster. This guys a joke. He plays maybe 4 games a year then goes on IR. Plus he is just a bad human being.

    And yet they still have split their games for the last few years, so you’re saying you’re better without the whiner at qb?

    Patriots winning Sunday proves what everyone has known for years…Brady is among the greatest QB’s of all time but Belichick is the best in the business.

    Fixed that for you booey.
    Miami fanboys, basement dwellers..just like their team.

    And now for what those the understand football think. I found the following quotes online…

    “Brady has played in multiple offenses — running game dominated, deep threat dominated, spread offenses, twin tight end based offenses — and won in ALL of them.”
    “He’s the antithesis of a system quarterback.”
    “He can win with any personnel, in any system”

    “Tom Brady is a LOT more than a “system” quarterback.”
    “He’s won under three different Offensive Coordinators – Weis, McDaniels and O’Brien.”
    “Brady has won with every type of personnel, too!”
