Ahmed had six carries for 29 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's blowout 56-26 loss to the Bills.
Ahmed split Miami's backfield work fairly evenly with Myles Gaskin during the Week 17 loss, and the backs managed to score despite both being held under 30 rushing yards. Through six appearances with the Dolphins in 2020, the undrafted rookie compiled 319 yards and three touchdowns on 75 carries (4.3 YPC). Ahmed also secured 11 of 14 targets for 61 yards. He remains under contract with Miami through 2021, so barring any offseason pickups he could begin next season as the No. 2 option behind Gaskin.
Ahmed had six carries for two yards during Saturday's 26-25 win over the Raiders. He also hauled in his only target for one yard.
Ahmed reverted to a depth role in Miami's backfield due to the return of Myles Gaskin from the COVID-19 list. Just a week removed from dropping 122 rushing yards on the Patriots, Ahmed was inefficient on his seven offensive touches, while Gaskin racked up 169 scrimmage yards and two scores on his 14 carries and five targets.
Ahmed carried the ball 23 times for 122 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 22-12 win over the Patriots. He also caught one of three targets for five yards.
Ahmed hugely rewarded fantasy managers who trusted him in their playoff matchups, as he returned to a workhorse role with Myles Gaskin (illness) still on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Despite coming off a three-game absence due to a lingering shoulder injury, Ahmed managed an impressive 5.3 yards per carry, becoming the first Dolphins' running back to record a 100-yard rushing day in two years, as Tom Pelissero of NFL Network notes. If Gaskin remains sidelined against the Raiders on Dec. 26, Ahmed will once again be poised to serve as the Dolphins' top back.
ESPN's Cameron Wolfe indicates that Ahmed (shoulder), who is back after after missing three games with a shoulder injury, is in line to lead Miami's backfield Sunday against the Patriots.
He re-enters the mix with Myles Gaskin on the reserve/COVID-19 list and the Dolphins' pass-catching corps without key cogs DeVante Parker (hamstring), Mike Gesicki (shoulder) and Jakeem Grant (hamstring). In that context, the Dolphins will need all they can get from Ahmed, Matt Breida and DeAndre Washington, while Patrick Laird is on hand in a reserve role.
Ahmed (shoulder) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Patriots.
Ahmed is back, but it remains to be seen how heavily he'll be used in his return, even with Myles Gaskin (illness) still on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Also on hand are DeAndre Washington, Matt Breida and Patrick Laird, which could lead to a committee/hot hand backfield approach in Week 15.
The Dolphins list Ahmed (shoulder) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
After the shoulder injury sidelined him for the past three games, Ahmed turned in a trio of limited practices this week en route to receiving the questionable designation. Prior to getting hurt, Ahmed had been working as Miami's lead back, but his role for Week 15 is unsettled for now, given his uncertain status for the contest in addition to the fact that he's been sidelined for much of the past month. Myles Gaskin (illness) isn't on track to return from the reserve/COVID-19 list this week, so the Dolphins would be forced to rely on the trio of DeAndre Washington, Matt Breida and Patrick Laird if Ahmed is forced to miss a fourth straight game.
Ahmed (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant in Thursday's walk-through practice.
Ahmed has missed three consecutive games with a shoulder injury, but he's demonstrated some good progress this week by practicing in a limited fashion Wednesday and Thursday. He'll likely need to upgrade to full activity Friday to avoid carrying a designation into Sunday's game against the Patriots, but even another limited showing wouldn't close the door on him suiting up this weekend. If cleared to play, Ahmed would likely be contending with DeAndre Washington, Matt Breida and Patrick Laird for backfield reps, as Myles Gaskin (illness) isn't expected to be activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list ahead of Sunday's contest.
Ahmed (shoulder) was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
According to Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com, Ahmed donned a red no-contact jersey for the session, so he still has a few hurdles to clear before being deemed ready for game action. Elsewhere in the Miami backfield, Matt Breida (illness) has returned from reserve/COVID-19 list, while Myles Gaskin remains on the list after testing positive for the virus and looks unlikely to play Sunday against the Patriots. If Ahmed and Breida are both cleared for Week 15, it would be difficult to determine how Miami's backfield reps are divvied up between them and DeAndre Washington.
Ahmed (shoulder) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.
Ahmed will be forced to miss his third straight game due to a lingering shoulder injury. DeAndre Washington (hamstring) thus could be primed to serve as the No. 2 option behind Myles Gaskin (knee), assuming that both backs gain clearance to face the Chiefs. The Dolphins also have Patrick Laird and Lynn Bowden around as depth options.
Ahmed (shoulder) wasn't spotted during Friday's practice, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.
Ahmed appears to be a non-participant for the third straight practice and likely will be sidelined for the third consecutive game due to the shoulder injury. Myles Gaskin (knee) and DeAndre Washington (hamstring) also are banged up but have been able to practice with limitations, putting the pair on track to lead the backfield Sunday against the Chiefs.
Ahmed (shoulder) didn't practice Thursday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Ahmed appears to be trending toward sitting out a third straight game due to his lingering shoulder injury. With Myles Gaskin (knee) only practicing in a limited capacity, another absence by Ahmed would be a notable blow to the Dolphins' backfield depth. He'll have one more chance to take the practice field prior to Sunday's game against the Chiefs.
Ahmed (shoulder) wasn't spotted on the field during the portion of Wednesday's practice open to the media, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
Ahmed has missed consecutive games due to his shoulder injury, and his absence from practice to begin Week 14 isn't a positive early sign for his chances of returning to action Sunday against the Chiefs. Matt Breida (illness) and Malcolm Perry (chest) are also missing practice to start the week.
Ahmed (shoulder) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bengals.
Ahmed will be one three Dolphins running backs sidelined for Week 13 with DeAndre Washington (hamstring) also inactive and with Matt Brieda (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Fortunately for Miami, it will get some reinforcement at the position in the form of Myles Gaskin (knee), who was activated from injured reserve after practicing for the second week in a row. Considering Gaskin had handled a three-down role for Miami prior to suffering his injury Week 8, he'll likely operate as the team's top option moving forward, leaving fewer opportunities available for Ahmed once he overcomes his own health concern.
Coach Brian Flores said Friday that Ahmed (shoulder) will be listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Ahmed looks on track to miss his second straight game due to a lingering shoulder injury, though he hasn't yet been ruled out. With DeAndre Washington (hamstring) also doubtful and Matt Breida (illness) dealing with an ailment, Patrick Laird and Lynn Bowden are currently the Dolphins' only healthy running backs. However, Myles Gaskin (knee) could come off IR in time for Sunday's contest against the Bengals.
Ahmed (shoulder) wasn't present at the portion of Friday's practice open to the media, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.
Ahmed began the week with back-to-back limited practices, so he would be taking a notable step in the wrong direction if he ends up missing Friday's session entirely. The Dolphins' final practice report of the week will be released later Friday and will shed more light on Ahmed's situation heading into Sunday's game against the Bengals.
Ahmed (shoulder) remained limited at practice Thursday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Meanwhile, fellow running back DeAndre Washington (hamstring) didn't practice Thursday, with added clarity on the duo's Week 13 status set to arrive upon the release of Friday's injury report. Another moving part in Miami's backfield is the status of Myles Gaskin (knee), who the club could opt to activate from injured reserve in advance of Sunday's game against the Bengals.
Ahmed (shoulder) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
Ahmed wasn't able to practice leading up to last weekend's win over the Jets, so it's encouraging to see him back on the field in some capacity. The Dolphins could also activate Myles Gaskin (knee) from injured reserve ahead of Sunday's game against the Bengals, so this backfield may not have much clarity until later in the week. For what it's worth, coach Brian Flores was non-committal Wednesday when asked about Ahmed's chances of suiting up Week 13, according to Josh Tolentino of The Athletic.
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.
