Arian Foster ruled out for Sunday

Dolphins running back Arian Foster won’t play Sunday against the Browns.

Miami coach Adam Gase said today that Foster, who has been dealing with a groin injury, won’t be able to go this week.

Foster is the Dolphins’ No. 1 running back, but he hasn’t done much so far this season, managing just 47 yards on 16 carries through two games. Jay Ajayi and Kenyan Drake will likely get more carries with Foster out.

The good news for the Dolphins is that they’re facing the Browns, who are dealing with far more injuries than the Dolphins are. Miami is in the rare position of being both an 0-2 team and a 10-point favorite.

    I hereby swear that this will be the last football game I ever watch if the Dolphins lose.

    It would be easier to inform fans as to when he actually active.

    Color me surprised!

    The Miami Dolphins can’t run block so no big deal with Foster out. And always having to come from behind to score takes away the running game anyway.

    I feel sorry for both Dolphins & Browns fans equally, I look at this game as being the “Cursed Bowl”.

    Dolphins vs Browns = Tidy Bowl

    Well, at least it will be easier for him to kneel during the national anthem.

    Arian Foster is consistent, consistently unavailable. Great signing Miami.

    Death, taxes, and injured Foster…

  9. bubbybrister/shovelpass says: Sep 23, 2016 2:35 PM

    But most importantly, will he still be able to stand for the anthem?

  10. randomguy9999 says: Sep 23, 2016 2:35 PM

    doesn’t matter

    Tannehill will hand off on first, incomplete a 10 yard pass on second, some kind of penalty will make it 3rd and 12+ and he will check down for 3 and punt….. every series…..

    the Phins are such a wreck and it all starts with Tanny

    Never could figure why Jay Ajayi got huffy over having AF named starter over him. It wasn’t like AF was gonna last more than a few games anyways.

    This guy needs to just retire already

  13. fishyinalittledishy says: Sep 23, 2016 3:04 PM

    I choked on my coffee learning the Fins were 10 point favs. You must be kidding me, this is the Dolphins for heaven sakes. I love the Fins but come on this is a joke right. What right has anybody got in thinking Miami is favourite. What can you see that I can’t. This team at the moment has no backbone hasn’t had one since Zak Thomas retired.

    you won’t be missing much…

    He’ll be too busy with pregame militant activities anyway, playing football would just get in the way.

  16. helldog33 says: Sep 23, 2016 4:07 PM

    What right has anybody got in thinking Miami is favourite.

    The Fins are at home (3 pts) playing against another craptastic team on their 3rd string QB (the other 7 pts). You realize they’re playing the Browns at home, not the Pats in NE, right?

  17. iamkillerfin says: Sep 23, 2016 4:09 PM

    I was hopeful that he’d stay healthy put him as a back up start the rookies!!!

  18. AtheistsareIdiots says: Sep 23, 2016 4:16 PM

    In other news, the world is round

  19. bkrog says: Sep 23, 2016 4:48 PM

    Let’s put Kenyan Drake in and see what he has to offer. Jay Ajayi is not good.

  20. getitrightflorio says: Sep 23, 2016 4:58 PM

    We are going to destroy the Browns 42-0. This will put us back on track then we beat the Bengals.

  21. laukkanen5 says: Sep 23, 2016 5:03 PM

    He doesn’t stand for the anthem and he is an atheist…

    good luck with that…..

  22. damcmp says: Sep 23, 2016 5:11 PM

    Foster mode….. but he will stand for a chicken tamale!

  23. pkrlvr says: Sep 23, 2016 5:41 PM

    This man has more soft tissue injuries than AP ‘s children….

  25. nflrule says: Sep 23, 2016 6:12 PM

    Of course he is…

  26. nflrule says: Sep 23, 2016 6:13 PM

    Groin injury must be from kneeling for the anthem.

  27. wizahdry says: Sep 23, 2016 6:49 PM

    I’ll bet resigning Lamar Miller doesn’t look so bad now.

  28. justphinbaby says: Sep 23, 2016 7:40 PM

    We all knew this was part of what comes with signing Foster.

    Having him in the classroom and around these young guys is where i hope he is still bringing some value!

    Hope they give Pead and Drake the majority of the snaps with Williams in for the change of pace, pass catching RB, before Ajayi. I want to see what they can do!

    Not sure it makes a difference who start the game. They will all see playing time.

    I don’t care what happens, I’m a Dolphins fan thru the thick and thru the thin all the way to the end. our day will come and I’m feeling pretty certain it won’t as long as it has been before we are kicking as and taking names once again.

    Always hurt. Move on from him Miami.
