  • Ajayi back at practice

    Kid is a beast. Sucks that he cracked a rib in the PS. Hoping he can stay healthy, but he plays with reckless abandon.

    Last year as a pass catcher Ajayi was:

    - #1 with 50 receptions
    - #1 with 535 yards receiving
    - #1 with 488 YAC.
    - Such a natural pass catcher that Boise lined him up at WR as well.

    Running back:
    - #1 in rush attempts
    - #5 in rushing yards
    - #2 in rushing TDs with 28

    - #1 in plays from scrimmage
    - #1 in total yards from scrimmage
    - #1 in total TDs from scrimmage


    IdaHomer is going to be a happy man...

    I'm glad to hear/read that he is back at practice. To be honest I was kind of hoping the Dolphins were going to allow both Ajayi and Parker to get more than 100% and bust them both out against the Patriots so that Belichick would have no NFL tape on them. He is a great coach but one of his weaknesses is if he doesn't have tape on a player or if a team goes totally off-script and calls gadget plays that he is not familiar with, or seen on tape. Either way, if Ajayi plays this week he probably won't see enough carries to give away anything. It would be nice to see him get a feel of the NFL game and speed prior to punishing the Patriots next week.

        Missed it earlier. Ajayi won't be able to play until week 9 against the Bills. http://dailydolphin.blog.palmbeachpo...ice-this-week/

        Jay Ajayi, Miami’s fifth-round draft pick who was placed on short-term injured reserve after breaking a rib in the preseason, returns to practice this week.
        He is eligible to play Week 9 in Buffalo.
        The Dolphins will evaluate him over the next two weeks before deciding whether to activate him for the Bills game, according to a source.
        Miller is more of a complimentary back, but he's good when he has a lane, just not a powerback. Gray is the same size as Miller, but runs with more violence. Hoping Ajayi can stay healthy as a he is both fast and violent with great vision. My only concerns with him is his health, he's just too damned reckless and seeks out contact.

        Gray needs to take advantage of the opportunity. He and Miller can be a very good combo.

          Has anyone else noticed that when Miller bust through a hole and then sees a defender approaching he starts to bend his knees to prepare for the hit? He is not preparing to put a hit on the defender, he is preparing to be taken down so he starts to lower his body to the ground, conceding that he is going to be tackled rather then trying to either avoid the tackle or lay a hit on the defender to possibly run over said defender. I have never seen a running back do this and I am totally baffled by this type of running style. Why would he give up on possibly gaining more yards? Is he afraid of getting hurt?

            I have also noticed this. I just don't think that he has good change of direction abilities so he just braces for the tackle. Many times when it looks like he is about to have a big gain he just can't seem to elude that first defender.
