The Dolphins are looking for their fifth-straight victory on Sunday and they’ll have to make their attempt without the help of running back Matt Breida.

Breida missed last Sunday’s win over the Cardinals with a hamstring injury and he was listed as questionable to play against the Chargers at home this weekend. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Breida is not expected to play when the game kicks off at 4:05 p.m. ET.

Salvon Ahmed led the Dolphins with 35 rushing yards last weekend while Jordan Howard had a team-high 10 carries. DeAndre Washington and Patrick Laird are also on hand for Miami.

Cornerback Jamal Perry and tight end Durham Smythe were also listed as questionable for Miami.

  1. The Dolphins still have some holes to fill and running back is obviously one of them. I think keeping an often injured Kenyan Drake by giving him a big contract when the team was starting a total rebuild, didn’t make sense. They can get one of the top backs in next year’s draft at a cheaper price and immediately plug him into the offense.

  2. I’m looking for Ahmed to really turn in a good game. He really has not played very much and feeling a bit more comfortable now he might surprise. O-line has to make a hole 1st before any running back can consistently make gains. Tua is now in charge of making chicken salad out of chicken #2. I think he’s up for job and I sense Howard is ready to have another big game on D. We are missing players.. But so are they.

  3. Mark Walton was the ONLY RB I have seen lately that could consistently have success running behind this bad OL in Miami. Too bad he couldn’t stay away from his/…. what ever she was to him. I know she was bad news for him and he was bad news for himself. Hopefully Ahmed or the new comer Washingtion can find a similar grove running behind this poor OL as Mark Walton did
