The Dolphins have claimed RB Phillip Lindsay off waivers. He joins a backfield that has been dominated by Myles Gaskin lately. Claiming Lindsay probably means Miami would rather not give Gaskin quite so many touches. The former Texan and Bronco has faired poorly as a passing-down back throughout his career, though. So Gaskin should continue to control at least that area of Miami's backfield. We'd bet on Gaskin remaining a decent option in low RB2 territory, but his touch floor could be coming down. We'll see just what the Dolphins have in mind for Lindsay. Miami has also recently mixed Duke Johnson in and could get Malcolm Brown back from a quad injury that landed him on IR.
Dolphins RB Salvon Ahmed is a healthy scratch for today's game vs. the Jets. RB Duke Johnson, who was promoted from the practice squad on Saturday, is active and will serve as the #2 behind Myles Gaskin. Gaskin should handle the vast majority of the backfield work.
Dolphins RB Duke Johnson has been promoted to the active roster. He'll presumably be active for tomorrow's game vs. the Jets, alongside RBs Myles Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed. We wouldn't expect Johnson to steal more than a few touches from Gaskin.
The Dolphins have another back heading into the AFC East battle.
