Concussion continues to sideline Jay Ajayi

Dolphins running back Jay Ajayi remains sidelined by a concussion he suffered nearly two weeks ago.

Ajayi suffered the concussion on July 31, and he remains in the concussion protocol.

The Dolphins did have Ajayi in pads at practice this week, indicating that he’s making some progress, but until he’s fully cleared he won’t do anything more than watch at practice.

There’s been no word on when the Dolphins will get Ajayi back on the field, or whether he’ll play in the preseason at all. The Dolphins probably would like to get Ajayi some live action with new quarterback Jay Cutler so the two can get a feel for playing together, but with Ajayi’s concussion the Dolphins would be wise to take it slow.

  1. Better safe than sorry and it’s not like it matters to much since week one of the preseason just ended.

  2. Ajayi’s recovery from concussion was evident when he rushed down the sideline with teammates to congratulate undrafted rookie Stringfellow on the 99 yard TD. The concussion protocol must be strictly observed but Fantasy drafters, the Jay train will be fine.

  3. If someone has been concussed this badly should the team not just shut the player down for the year to recover. They don’t rush a knee injury back for several months but a head injury is sent right back into contact within a few days.Never understood why the injuries are treated with the same kind of seriousness as a knee will blow out if brought back too soon but not your brain.

  4. Just have sheriff Goodell suspend him for 6 games on a trumped up charge and that will give him enough time to recover from this concussion.

  5. “If someone has been concussed this badly should the team not just shut the player down for the year to recover.”

    Because there are varying degrees of concussion and it can be hard to diagnose exactly how bad they are. Some are very mild. A good analogy would be to imagine a tiny bruise on your arm with only the slightest discoloration. An analogy for a severe concussion would be a large bruise that is almost black in color from the discoloration. One heals quickly the other doesn’t.

    That’s why they give the concussion protocol tests repeatedly until the player passes or its clear he needs to be shut down for the year.

    Whereas say a torn ACL takes a given amount of time to heal no matter what. Nobody comes back from those the same season they occur so the player is automatically going to IR.

    “miami is a protected team”

    Bullygate says otherwise

    They had draft picks stolen and lies said about them going into a Super Bowl?

    I don’t think so. At worst, that was an awkward PC case as a way for Goodell to show how he could seemingly use Ted Wells to “investigate” something.

    Remember when Miami CBS audio from a CBS employee to steal Brady’s audibles in 2006 and it was used as technology for advanced, future scouting and Goodell approved, but he claimed something different for what “Spygate” was, mere months later, while ignoring the Jets violation from January 2007 in FOxborough?

    I am talking about draft picks stolen. MIami has never had them stolen and an overrated GUard like INcognito missing some games is nowhere near what the Pats or Saints have been through with the cheating Goodell.

    Miami may not be fully protected like the Ravens, Colts, Giants, Jets, Broncos, Steelers, etc, but they’re pretty close to being protected like those teams.
