09/12/15 - RB Jay Ajayi (ribs) was placed on reserve/injured, designated for return by the Dolphins Monday (Sept. 7).
09/01/15 - RB Jay Ajayi, the fifth-round pick from Boise State, had seven carries for 25 yards and two receptions for four yards Saturday against Atlanta. It was Ajayi's first appearance of the preseason due to a hamstring injury and although he looked OK he'll have a tough time playing from scrimmage early in the season because he missed so much time.
08/20/15 - RB Jay Ajayi, the fifth-round pick from Boise State, will be among the youngsters that gets a long look in Saturday's game at Carolina. Ajayi was sidelined with a hamstring injury for much of the last week and has been passed in the backup running back battle by LaMichael James and Damien Williams. It's likely Ajayi makes the 53-man roster. After all, he's a fifth-round pick. But it's not a guarantee. Ajayi doesn't play special teams, unlike James and Williams. Even RB Mike Gillislee plays special teams, which gives all of them an edge over Ajayi. That makes the Carolina game essential for Ajayi.
05/07/15 - RB Jay Ajayi, selected by the Dolphins in the fifth round of the draft (149th overall), agreed to terms on a four-year contract Thursday (May 7). Ajayi was the second of four fifth-round selections (149th overall) by Miami in the 2015 NFL draft out of Boise State. He appeared in 38 career games with 26 starts and recorded 678 rushing attempts for 3,796 yards (5.6 avg.) and 50 touchdowns, while also notching 73 receptions for 771 yards (10.6 avg.) and four touchdowns. He finished his Boise State career ranked in the top 10 of nine categories: rushing touchdowns (50, T-second), 200-yard rushing games (2, second), touchdowns (55, third), 100-yard rushing games (17, T-third), rushing yards (3,796, fourth), yards per carry (5.60, fourth), rushing attempts (678, fifth), scoring (330 points, fifth) and all-purpose yards (4,583, eighth). In 2014, he rushed for 1,823 yards and recorded 535 receiving yards, becoming the only player in FBS history to accumulate 1,800 rushing yards and 500 receiving yards in a single season. His 1,823 rushing yards were also a Boise State record, along with his 28 rushing touchdowns. Born June 15, 1993, Ajayi attended Liberty High School in Frisco, Texas.
05/05/15 - A closer look at the Dolphins' seven picks: Round 5/149 - Jay Ajayi, RB, 6-0, 221, Boise State...This was an interesting pick because the Dolphins needed a power running back. The problem is many teams stayed away from Ajayi because medical reports said one knee is almost bone-on-bone. Regardless, Miami might have a steal with this one. If Ajayi can stay healthy he could push Lamar Miller for the starting job. - The Sports Xchange
