Monday MRI to provide more info on Arian Foster’s groin injury

Running back Arian Foster’s soft tissue injuries were an issue for the Texans in his final years with Houston and he’s now dealing with one as a member of the Dolphins.

Foster left Sunday’s loss to the Patriots after 10 plays with a groin injury and a Monday MRI is expected to provide a better idea of how it will impact him in the near future. Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports that the team is concerned that the injury will keep Foster out for at least one week.

That would likely mean a choice between Jay Ajayi and rookie Kenyan Drake as the lead running back for the home opener against the Browns. Ajayi, who was left home for the opener in Seattle, lost a fumble in Sunday’s loss.

“Jay, that was a crticial turnover there,” coach Adam Gase said. “I mean, we just can’t have that. We have to do a better job of ball security, but, for the most part, protection was good.”

Ajayi ran five times for 14 yards overall while Drake carried twice for 12 yards and scored a seven-yard touchdown.

    This is what happens when you let Lamar Miller walk

    Where is Pead?

    Foster was questionable going into the game and they played him anyway. With his injury history they would have been better served to let him sit. That they didn’t pretty much tells us all we need to know about how they feel about their RB situation.

    He plays hard, and when healthy he is a really good player, but the only word I can use to describe him is fragile.

    That’s what happens when you don’t stand for the National Anthem!

    Does not matter, defense is worst in the NFL, couldn’t stop the Patsie JV team, looks likes another 6-10ish type of year with Philbin 2.0 in charge and Turnoverhill.

    The guy is always hurt. That’s why the Texans let him walk. Always a groin injury. Always.

    Serves him right for kneeling during National Anthem!

    It’s just a matter of time before he does get hurt for the season.

    probably did it while taking a knee during the national anthem…..

    Drake looks to be the only RB we got!!! I’d say start looking for RB out there but we need DB help LB help & NOTHING is getting done about that either!!! 6-10 at this point will be a positive season for this squad!!! Cant even compete with the patsies 3rd string!!!

    Went vegan, hasn’t ever been the same. Eat more animals.

    Hello Tannenbaum ? C.J. Spiller is sitting around on Sundays now WATCHING the games! He is a threat out the backfield for short yardage & can CATCH the ball!!

  15. nflgtcfl says: Sep 19, 2016 1:03 PM

    He is done. Too easy to find a good back in later rounds.

    Karma for protesting during a 9/11 memorial.

  17. beachsidejames says: Sep 19, 2016 2:20 PM

    Get rid of this guy.

    I guess Foster is not going to earn his incentive pay so this expected injury routine cost the Dolphins nothing. They need to get Drake game ready. Many of you are asking for Pead and I agree that he played well early in preseason, but he is a liability in protection. Ajayi better get his act together! We kept 4 RBs and they all have injury cncern or are mediocre at best. Williams can run hard and block, but is not a receiving threat. Maybe Clyde watch the Pats shred us… How about we go shotgun, empty backfield and quick slants, bootlegs and delay release TE middle passes all year. The Dink and Dunk works great and pass rushes and blitzing cant get there in time. The Patriots game plan proved it. 5 wide outs is tough to stop especially if you switch to it and go tempo which is what happened against our base defense. They had TE against MLBs and fast Edelman against a Safety! I hate the Pats but respect the heck out of them.

    Having Foster around cost plenty. His mello-jello attitude towards football play thrown in with his kneeling save the world crusade has a negative effect on teammates play. Look at Stills for example. He is so distracted he suddenly can’t catch a football and it cost the Fins a win in Seattle. Foster is not hungry enough and not worth the aggravation. Get rid of him and get somebody back there that wants it.

    watching Wentz and Garapollo this weekend and they’re already ahead of Turnoverhill, the dolphins have now wasted 5 years trying to turn a WR into a QB, thank god its over after this year.
    Turnoverhill is not a natural QB, 66 games has proven it.
    Good guy just not an NFL QB.

    Only 2 left not to stand for The National Anthem.
