Hayes was dealt to the Dolphins by the Rams during the offseason. The veteran projects to mainly provide depth on the defensive line going forward this season. He saw 25 snaps (43%) in Sunday's win over the Chargers, and figures to continue seeing a similar workload.
The Rams are also sending their seventh round pick to Miami to secure the 206th selection in the upcoming draft. Hayes, 31, is entering the second year of a three-year, $17.5 million contract. He'll add depth at defensive end for the Dolphins, but the team's edge depth will likely result in a reduction in snaps for Hayes in 2017.
Hayes (ankle) is listed as active for Sunday's tilt against the Panthers, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports.
Hayes sat out of practice on Wednesday and Thursday, but was able to participate in limited fashion on Friday as he dealt with the ankle issue. He's slated to start at defensive end opposite Robert Quinn.
Hayes (ankle) was limited in practice Friday and is questionable for Sunday's tilt with the Panthers.
Hayes did not practice on Wednesday or Thursday, so his limited participation Friday is at least a sign of improvement. Whether the defensive end will be on the field Sunday remains to be seen, but expect Ethan Westbrooks to pick up the start should Hayes be ruled out.
