After returning to practice a week ago, he has progressed well and could be activated for the first time since week one on Sunday against the Rams, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. He is listed as questionable on the team's official injury report. If he plays, either Leonard Henry or Brock Forsey would be deactivated.
Views: Minor could work his way back into the running back mix for the Dolphins. The team may finally be back to where it started this season, when they envisioned some sort of split between Sammy Morris and Minor. Morris ran extremely well last week in his first start this season, so we still expect him to get the bulk of the carries. Minor would provide a change of pace and a pass-catching threat out of the backfield on third down if he is able to play.
Oct 21 Morris (ankle) is listed as probable on the injury report for Week 7, but is expected to play without reservation.
Recommendation: Having just solidified the #1 RB slot, Morris will not let this minor injury affect his game on Sunday. With tempered expectations due to the Offensive Line he runs behind, Morris is actually a decent option this week as the Dolphins take on the Rams.
For a Miami fan, it is nice to know that we are finally back to where we started at the beginning of the season. Now we can shoot Wanny, Kidnap Marino, Bring back Shula, find the ancient Duper bros., dig up Csonka (no he's still alive, right?), Maybe rapid detox Ricky, and get Zach on some queludes. Now we are ready to start the season....
I call do overs right now!!!!!!!!!!!!!
