Foster (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Cleveland, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Absent from practice all week, Foster was never a good bet to play in Sunday's favorable matchup. Jay Ajayi and Kenyan Drake will likely split most of the backfield work, though Damien Williams and/or Isaiah Pead could potentially also be involved. Miami has yet to name a replacement starter.

Foster (groin) was not spotted during the open portion of Friday's practice, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

We'll have to see how the Dolphins officially list Foster for Sunday's game against the Browns, but given that he hasn't practiced all week, we'd be surprised to see him play this weekend. If Foster is unable to suit up Sunday, Jay Ajayi and Kenyan Drake would be in line to see expanded roles in Week 3, along with Isaiah Pead and/or Damien Williams to a lesser degree.

Foster (groin) did not practice Thursday, the Palm Beach Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Per the report, "injured (Miami) players typically work on the side during practice, but Foster wasn't even out for that" Thursday. The running back looks iffy, at best, for Sunday's game against the Browns. If he is unable to this weekend, Jay Ajayi and Kenyan Drake would be candidates to see expanded roles in Week 3, along with Isaiah Pead and/or Damien Williams to a lesser degree.

Both Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport refer to Foster as a long-shot to play Sunday against the Browns.

EDGE Analysis

In the event that Foster is out this weekend, and possibly longer, Jay Ajayi figures to see added opportunities in the Miami backfield Sunday, with Kenyan Drake also in the mix. Meanwhile, the Palm Beach Post suggests that Isaiah Pead could re-enter the mix Sunday, after sitting out the Dolphins' first two games.

The Dolphins haven't ruled out Foster (hamstring) for Sunday's game against the Browns, Dan Graziano of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

A hamstring injury afflicted Foster's practice reps in advance of Week 2, but he was ultimately knocked out of Sunday's loss at New England with a groin concern. Due to his extensive medical chart, the Dolphins already plan to keep the running back out of the first practice of each week, so an absence Wednesday should be taken with a grain of salt. Instead, his ability to handle drills Thursday and Friday will give a better indication of his Week 3 availability. If the team's medical staff ultimately rules Foster out, a combination of Jay Ajayi, Kenyon Drake, and even Isaiah Pead will man the backfield Sunday.

Foster is believed to have suffered a groin strain and probably won't miss more than a game or two, USA Today's Tom Pelissero reports.

EDGE Analysis

Foster left Sunday's game against New England in the first quarter, ceding the backfield to Jay Ajayi and Kenyan Drake for the rest of the game. The 30-year-old running back is merely considered day-to-day, but his injury history makes any issue worrisome, even if an extended absence isn't expected. Miami draws a favorable Week 3 home matchup against Cleveland.

Coach Adam Gase noted Monday that Foster (groin) is day-to-day, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

At this stage, it's unclear if Foster will practice Wednesday, but the apparent inference here is that the veteran back has a chance to play Sunday against the Browns. If Foster ends up limited, or out this weekend, Jay Ajayi and Kenyan Drake would be next in line for work out of the Miami backfield in Week 3.

Foster will have an MRI on his injured groin Monday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

EDGE Analysis

Foster's injury is not thought to be serious, but the veteran will still undergo testing Monday to clarify the nature of his groin problem. The results of Foster's MRI figure to help determine his availability going forward, but it's worth noting that he did not return after exiting Sunday's game against the Patriots due to the issue. If the oft-injured tailback is inhibited at all going forward, Jay Ajayi and Kenyan Drake figure to be the chief beneficiaries.

Foster (groin) will not return to Sunday's game against the Patriots.

EDGE Analysis

While the severity of Foster's groin injury remains unclear, the damage is good enough to keep him sidelined for the remainder of the Dolphins' Week 2 tilt. The team will lean on Jay Ajayi and Kenyan Drake at running back throughout the rest of the game .

Foster exited Sunday's game against the Patriots with a groin injury.

EDGE Analysis

With Damien Williams and Isaiah Pead inactive for the contest, the Dolphins are down to Jay Ajayi and Kenyan Drake at the running back position Sunday.
