Gaskin caught his only target for no yards in Sunday's 16-12 win over the Colts. Gaskin got bumped up the depth chart in the absence of Mark Walton (suspension) and recorded the first touch of his career. There may not be too many more this season, even without Walton. If Sunday is any indication, Kalen Ballage will enjoy the lion's share of touches in Walton's absence while Patrick Laird fills in behind. That leaves a limited role for Gaskin over the next three games. Next up is a Buffalo defense that dominates against the pass, but ranks 20th in the league at 4.5 yards per carry allowed.
Gaskin is likely to climb Miami's depth chart and play a reserve role with Mark Walton serving a four-game suspension, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Gaskin hasn't yet gotten a chance to play this season, but he and Patrick Laird will now be forced into depth roles behind Kalen Ballage for at least the next four weeks. The Dolphins may opt to add another running back to the roster, but the team could realistically also attempt to make the most of Walton's suspension by taking a look at Gaskin, a rookie selected in the seventh round of the 2019 NFL Draft.
Gaskin (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Ravens, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports. Gaskin hasn't yet suited up for a regular-season contest. He's operating as the No. 5 running back in Miami behind Kenyan Drake, Kalen Ballage, Mark Walton and Patrick Laird.
Gaskin (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's clash against Baltimore. Gaskin wasn't dealing with an injury coming into the game, and continues to face an uphill battle for snaps. With the Washington product sidelined, Mark Walton will fill in as the third running back behind Kenyan Drake and Kalen Ballage.
Gaskin carried the ball eight times for 48 yards while catching both his targets for 17 yards in Thursday's preseason win over the Saints. Neither Kenyan Drake nor Kalen Ballage suited up in Miami's final preseason game, and while Mark Walton got the start and led the team in rushing, Gaskin made a positive impression as well -- his 17-yard scamper in the third quarter was the longest of the night by a running back on either team. The seventh-round pick in this year's draft remains in the hunt for the No. 3 RB spot, but he might need a Walton suspension to win it.
