Dolphins will put Myles Gaskin on injured reserve

Word earlier this week was that Dolphins running back Myles Gaskin would miss three games with a sprained MCL.

Dolphins head coach Brian Flores confirmed that Gaskin will miss at least that much time on Thursday. Flores told reporters at his press conference that Gaskin will be placed on injured reserve.

Miami may also be without running back Matt Breida against the Cardinals this Sunday. He did not practice on Wednesday because of a hamstring injury.

The Dolphins picked up running back DeAndre Washington in a trade with the Chiefs on Tuesday, but he won’t be able to play this week due to the time needed to go through COVID-19 protocols. Jordan Howard, Patrick Laird, and Salvon Ahmed are the team’s other running backs.

  1. All of the sudden we are short on running backs. It isn’t the running I’m worried about as much as picking up the blitz and also protecting the ball.
    Hopefully Brieda can go. Will be nice to see Howard get some playing time though.

  2. This is where Howard could feast. He is the type player that needs touches. He builds power and wears down defenses as the game progresses.

  3. I would like to see a designation that distinguishes between 3 week and season ending IR. Maybe an IRX if you’re done for the year
