    Dolphins’ Matt Breida: Placed on COVID-19 list

    The Miami Dolphins placed Matt Breida (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday.Breida missed Friday’s practice with an illness prior to being officially placed on the COVID-19 list, a transaction which rules him out for Sunday’s game against the Bengals. Salvon Ahmed (shoulder) and DeAndre Washington (hamstring) are also both doubtful to face Cincinnati, which leaves Patrick Laird and Lynn Bowden as the only healthy running backs currently on Miami’s roster. It seems likely that the team will promote Myles Gaskin (knee) from IR on Saturday, in time for him to reclaim the lead role, but in any event Miami won’t have much in the way of backfield depth Week 13.

    Dolphins’ Matt Breida: Second fiddle in easy win

    Matt Breida had eight carries for 36 yards during Sunday’s 20-3 win over the Jets. He also secured both of his targets for 17 yards and fumbled once.Breida was more efficient on the ground than DeAndre Washington (3.8 YPC), but he nonetheless handled five less carries and saw three fewer targets. He didn’t see much work after fumbling in the third quarter. At one point in the offseason, it seemed as though Breida (not to mention Jordan Howard) was destined for a key role in the Miami Dolphins’ backfield, but even with both Myles Gaskin (knee) and Salvon Ahmed (shoulder) sidelined, the team doesn’t seem willing to entrust him with more than No.2 duties. Even if both Gaskin and Ahmed sit out Week 13 against the Bengals, it will be difficult to trust Breida for fantasy purposes.

    Dolphins’ Matt Breida: More work on tap

    Matt Breida is expected to be the Miami Dolphins’ primary running back after Myles Gaskin (knee) and Salvon Ahmed (shoulder) were ruled out for Sunday’s matchup against the Jets, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.There was some hope Gaskin would be activated off injured reserve following his minimum three-game stint, but the team is evidently content allowing Breida to act as the primary ball carrier for at least this Sunday against the Jets. The 25-year-old has seen more than six carries just twice this season and sports a paltry 3.4 yards-per-carry across 39 totes this year, but this figures to be a solid matchup regardless considering the Jets’ porous defense. Breida could even be a factor in the passing game, particularly with Ryan Fitzpatrick likely set to start behind center after Tua Tagavailoa (left thumb) was downgraded to doubtful.

    Dolphins’ Matt Breida: Barely involved in return

    Matt Breida had two carries for four yards during Sunday’s 20-13 loss to the Broncos.Breida shed his injury tag prior to suiting up Sunday, but he was nonetheless unable to garner more than minimal work behind undrafted rookie Salvon Ahmed (12 carries, five catches). The veteran previously spent the first half of the season behind Myles Gaskin (knee), and there’s been nothing to hint that the Miami Dolphins view him as more than a backup option.

    Dolphins’ Matt Breida: Practices without limitations

    Matt Breida (hamstring) was a full participant in Wednesday’s practice, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.Breida was a full participant in practice for the first time since sustaining a hamstring injury Week 8, putting him on track to play Sunday against the Broncos. With top back Myles Gaskin (knee) on injured reserve for at least one more game, Breida could be in store for a larger role than he’s normally seen this season, but he’ll still have to fend off undrafted rookie Salvon Ahmed for carries. Ahmed thrived in the bellcow role in last weekend’s win over the Chargers, so it’s possible that Breida will be relegated to a complementary gig Week 11 if coach Brian Flores prefers to ride the hotter hand.

    Dolphins’ Matt Breida: Practicing Wednesday

    Matt Breida (hamstring) is participating in Wednesday’s practice, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.Breida, who managed to practice in a limited capacity last week, has missed back-to-back games due to his hamstring injury. If he’s able to get healthy in time for Sunday’s game in Denver, Breida could see his first chance of the season to handle significant work out of the backfield. Myles Gaskin (knee) will need to remain on injured reserve for at least one more week, and the Miami Dolphins recently released a potential challenger for reps in Jordan Howard.

    Dolphins’ Matt Breida: Inactive in Week 10

    Matt Breida (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday’s Week 10 tilt against the Chargers.Breida was reported to be unlikely to play early Sunday, and despite a week of limited practice participation, that prognosis has come to fruition. The speedy fourth-year pro’s second straight absence leaves the Miami Dolphins with a backfield committee consisting of Salvon Ahmed, DeAndre Washington and Patrick Laird, as both Jordan Howard and Lynn Bowden are healthy scratches.

    Dolphins’ Matt Breida: Not expected to play Sunday

    Matt Breida, who is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Chargers due to a hamstring injury, “may be a week away from going,” Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.Rapoport’s report essentially matches the one provided Saturday by Adam Schefter of ESPN, who noted that Breida will likely miss a second straight game this weekend. In the event that Breida is unable to go, the Miami Dolphins’ top Week 10 backfield options would include Jordan Howard (team-high 10 carries for 19 yards and a touchdown Week 9) and Salvon Ahmed (seven carries for 38 yards). Additionally, the Dolphins will also have recent trade acquisition DeAndre Washington available to make his team debut.

    Dolphins’ Matt Breida: Trending down for Sunday

    Matt Breida (hamstring) isn’t expected to play Sunday against the Chargers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.The 25-year-old is officially listed as questionable for Sunday’s contest, but it appears he hasn’t progressed well since injury designations were announced Friday. Breida could step into the starting role if able to play since Myles Gaskin (knee) is sidelined, but he instead seems likely to miss his second straight contest due to the hamstring injury. If Breida is indeed unable to play against Los Angeles, Salvon Ahmed is poised to lead the backfield while Jordan Howard handles short-yardage and goal-line work.

    Dolphins’ Matt Breida: Draws questionable tag

    Matt Breida (hamstring) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Chargers, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.Breida’s hamstring injury kept him from facing the Cardinals last weekend, but it seems like he has at least a fair shot to return versus Los Angeles. The former 49er has worked as the No. 2 back in Miami for most of the season, and he boasts a similar skill set to Myles Gaskin (knee), who was a three-down starter before suffering an MCL sprain. As such, it’s possible that Breida could start for the Miami Dolphins if he can prove his full health, but this backfield could also be one of the most cluttered units in the league. Jordan Howard has proven effective as a short-yardage specialist, undrafted rookie Salvon Ahmed flashed in limited attempts Week 9, and recent trade acquisition DeAndre Washington should be available to make his team debut. Plus, third-round rookie Lynn Bowden recently came off the reserve/COVID-19 list, and Patrick Laird is always a candidate for limited change-of-pace work.
