Running back Jordan Howard signed with the Dolphins this month and his first offensive touch with his new team will be his first in a long while.
Howard did not carry the ball or catch a pass after Week Nine last season and missed all but one of the Eagles’ games over the remainder of the campaign with a shoulder injury. He only played one snap in the one game he did play over that span, so it’s little surprise that he faced a question about his condition when he met with the media this week.
“I’m back to 100 percent now,” Howard said, via the Palm Beach Post. “It took a while, but I’m finally back to being 100 percent.”
Howard ran for 4.4 yards per carry when he was healthy last year, which is more than a yard per attempt more than the Dolphins managed as a team in 2019. He may get some company in the backfield via the draft, but similar production should keep him active as long as he’s healthy.
