Arian Foster, Laremy Tunsil listed as starters on Dolphins depth chart


Shortly after running back Arian Foster signed with the Dolphins this summer, Dolphins coach Adam Gase said that “time will tell” if Foster is on the field for the first snap of games but that the veteran is “going to be rolling with the ones” during the 2016 season.

It looks like Foster will be able to start rolling with the ones from the start of the regular season. Foster is listed as the starting running back on the team’s Week One depth chart after sitting behind Jay Ajayi on earlier versions.

Gase said, via Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, that Foster’s experience and his performance in camp helped him jump Ajayi. Damien Williams is the No. 3 with Isaiah Pead and rookie Kenyan Drake in the “other” category.

The depth chart also shows first-round pick Laremy Tunsil at left guard, which was to be expected after the team moved him into the lineup for the second and third preseason games and sat him out of the finale. Veteran Jermon Bushrod, who started the final three preseason games, will be at right guard.

  1. If Forster and the O line stays healthy with all the weapons Tannehill has this year Miami could be a very underrated team

    “If” was never more appropriately used

  2. As a resident of Boise, Idaho and a BSU fan since the 70’s, I’m a huge Jay Ajayi fan. But I’ll be the first to say: he has to show much, much more than he has in preseason to maintain a major role.

    Dropped passes, sluggish reads, fumbles. He hasn’t looked anything like the 2,500 total yard, 30+ TD monster he was in college.

    The first two games this year may dictate the direction of his entire career. Rooting hard, but he’s gotta step up.

  3. I hope the Dolphins finally have the Oline fixed. Maybe it is me, but it seemed they played better without Pouncey. I am not saying Steen is better, but as a unit they were more productive. Bushrod and Tunsil will be fine. They have a lot to learn as teams dial up real schemes. I just hope Tannehill is given a real chance. No QB in the league has been given more disadvantage and still threw for over 4000yds. If he fails… I will be in line for the campaign to get rid of him too. As for the RB’s… I bet they use 3 of them throughout the game. Yes, sucks for Fantasy, but is good for depth when an injury occurs.
