Around the NFL: Dolphins running backs

There's a story at ESPN suggesting that Dolphins running back Raheem Mostert is iffy for Week 1. This isn't terribly surprising to anyone who's followed Mostert's recent career. From the report it sounds like Mostert possibly had a setback with the knee injury he suffered early last season.

Around the NFL: Miami Ground Machine

The Dolphins traded for Tyreek Hill and will pair him with one of last season's breakout rookie receivers, Jaylen Waddle, to pass the ball all over the yard. Or will they?

Breida misses another practice due to bad hammy

Miami Dolphins running back MATT BREIDA missed practice for the second consecutive day due to a hamstring injury. The Dolphins were expecting Breida to replace injured starter MYLES GASKIN (placed onMore injured reserve), but that plan may need to change.

Factoid: Kalen Ballage

Waiver claims are due tonight in a lot of leagues, and no doubt running back-desperate fantasy franchises will be considering Kalen Ballage. And that's fair. Starting running backs can be hard to come by at this point in the season, and he should be Miami's starter the next four games. But expectations should be modest.   more »
