Washington (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bills. Washington will be in street clothes for the second straight contest with all four of Miami's other running backs (Myles Gaskin, Salvon Ahmed, Matt Breida and Patrick Laird) at full strength. After being acquired from the Chiefs in early November, Washington didn't make much of an impact in three games he played with the Dolphins this season, carrying 28 times for 86 yards (3.1 average) to go with four receptions for 28 yards on nine targets.
Washington (coach's decision) is inactive for Saturday's game against the Raiders. Myles Gaskin will return to the lineup this week after a stint on the reserve/COVID-19 list. He and Salvon Ahmed figure to handle most of the backfield work in Saturday's crucial AFC clash; Matt Brieda and Patrick Laird should rotate in occasionally as well.
Washington did not see the field during Sunday's 22-12 win over New England. Washington saw his role on offense vanish following the return of both Salvon Ahmed and Matt Breida to the lineup Sunday, as he worked as Miami's reserve No. 4 back. Even if Myles Gaskin (undisclosed) misses more time on the COVID-19 list, it looks like Washington won't be very involved Week 16.
Washington will be joined by Salvon Ahmed and Matt Breida in Miami's Week 15 backfield against the Patriots, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports. Patrick Laird is also on hand, but with the team's pass catchers banged up Sunday, the Dolphins will need all they can get from the team's running backs. Look for a committee/hot hand approach to dictate the team's carries versus New England.
Washington rushed 13 times for 35 yards and caught two of four targets for 17 yards in Sunday's 33-27 loss to Kansas City. Washington was the workhorse on the ground with Myles Gaskin and Matt Breida both on the reserve/COVID-19 list and Salvon Ahmed (shoulder) inactive. He didn't do much with the opportunity, however, averaging just 2.7 yards per carry against his former team. Washington will likely retain the lead role in Week 15 against the Patriots if none of the three aforementioned running backs are ready to return, but he'll be hard to trust after this disappointing showing.
