Ahmed (shoulder) won't play Sunday against the Jets, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports. Though Ahmed is out this week, the Dolphins have the option of activating Myles Gaskin (knee) from IR in advance of Sunday's game. Per Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com, Brian Flores relayed that the team plans to review the practice film on Gaskin before determining his Week 12 status. Miami's other backfield options include Matt Breida, Patrick Laird and DeAndre Washington.
Ahmed (shoulder) remained sidelined at practice Thursday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports. Back-to-back absences put Ahmed's status for Sunday's game against the Jets in question. What he's able to do Friday thus will be telling as it pertains to his Week 12 status. Another thing to keep an eye on with regard to Miami's backfield is whether the team elects to activate Myles Gaskin (knee) from IR in advance of this weekend's action.
Ahmed didn't practice Wednesday due to a shoulder injury, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports. Ahmed briefly left last week's loss to the Broncos with the injury before returning to action. He'll have two more chances to resume practicing before the Dolphins decide whether to assign him with an injury designation for Week 12, but Miami's backfield situation will warrant close monitoring even if Ahmed gains clearance for Sunday's game against the Jets. Myles Gaskin (knee) was designated for return from injured reserve Wednesday, and offseason trade acquisition Matt Breida could take on an expanded role in Week 12 now that he's further removed from a hamstring injury that sidelined him for two games.
Ahmed carried the ball 12 times for 43 yards and caught five of six targets for 31 yards in Sunday's 20-13 loss to the Broncos. The Dolphins' offense struggled to move the ball in general, but Ahmed was at least the clear No. 1 back despite briefly leaving the game with a shoulder injury, as Matt Breida received only two touches and Patrick Laird one. Ahmed should see similar volume in Week 12 against a Jets defense that's been far more vulnerable through the air than on the ground this season.
Ahmed (shoulder) returned to Sunday's game against the Broncos, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports. Initially deemed questionable to return to the contest after suffering a shoulder injury, Ahmed found his way back to the field and figures to continue to head the Dolphins' Week 11 ground attack.
