The Dolphins have a first-year head coach in Adam Gase and life in a new job can sometimes come with growing pains and learning experiences that inform how you do it in the future.
Gase has had one such learning experience over the last couple of weeks. The Dolphins have used four running backs in each of their last two games, a decision that Gase seemed to suggest was the backfield equivalent of having too many cooks in the kitchen when he called it “some bad coaching by me.”
“Going forward, hopefully we can target a couple of guys a game or one guy a game and let that guy get in the flow of it,” Gase said, via the Miami Herald.
Arian Foster has missed the last two games with a groin injury and remained out of practice again on Tuesday, which may take him out of the equation for Gase this week. That likely leaves Jay Ajayi and Kenyan Drake at the top of the list as the Dolphins try to rebound from last week’s dismal loss to the Bengals.
