Jordan Howard says he’s 100 percent after 2019 shoulder injury

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.

  1. Bring in whatever players you want but they won’t win until they get a new head coach. No idea why teams hire former Patriot assistants.

  2. With home field advantage throughout the playoffs at stake the Patriots got beat at home by THE MIAMI DOLPHINS and you guessed it FORMER Patriots assistant Brian Flores. My guess is that trend of Miami beating up on New England with Brian Flores as Head Coach will continue.

    Dolphins finished with their worst record this year since 2007. Congrats on beating the Patriots which they do almost every year. What has Flores done again?

  4. Philly was silly to let him go. Must be an Andy Reid tree thing. First Nagy dumped him. Then Pederson. No he’s not very versatile as far as what you can do with him, but if 2019 proved anything it’s that RUN FOOTBALL is back and downhill grinders like Howard are KEY to that. Unless you have Patrick Mahomes, the Reid tree is gonna become yesterday’s fad very FAST.
