Swap one injured back for another. That's how it seems things are going so far in Miami's camp.
Ajayi is on the practice field, but on the side riding a stationary bike. That should be encouraging enough to expect he and Foster to resume their time together in the backfield in the near future, though it is sobering to consider the running back vying for a starting job is dealing with a knee issue before the team has even entered full pads.
Ajayi later told reporters, per The Miami Herald, that he's currently battling a bone bruise in his knee but doesn't expected to be out for very long.
Here are more injuries we've been tracking on Monday:
Cornerback Mike Jenkins broke a bone in his hand over the weekend and is having surgery Monday, coach Bruce Arians said. The hope is Jenkins should be able to play with a cast in two to three weeks.
- The muddled Seahawks' backfield won't get much clarity this week when it comes to rookie running back C.J. Prosise, who will miss another five to eight days with a grade-one hamstring strain, head coach Pete Carroll said. Carroll added that tight end Cooper Helfet broke a bone in his foot, but does not need surgery.
