Dolphins' Salvon Ahmed (shoulder) in non-contact jersey

Miami Dolphins running back Salvon Ahmed (shoulder) practiced in a non-contact jersey Wednesday.

What It Means:

Ahmed is progressing toward a return after missing the last two games. The Dolphins activated Matt Breida from the reserve/COVID-19 list, so they may be getting two of their backs back for Sunday's Week 15 matchup against the New England Patriots. Ahmed, Breida, and DeAndre Washington could all be involved in some fashion. Myles Gaskin, meanwhile, is expected to remain on the COVID-19 list through Week 15.

The Dolphins' backfield will be matched up with a Patriots defense that ranks 14th in FanDuel points allowed per game to the running back position and 24th in numberFire's scheduled-adjusted defensive rankings. Ahmed ranks 47th in Rushing Net Expected Points per carry out of 88 backs with at least 25 carries this season.
