09/26/16 - RB Jay Ajayi wound up scoring the game-winning touchdown from 11 yards out with 8:26 left in overtime on Sunday afternoon as the Dolphins knocked off the Cleveland Browns 30-24 in newly renovated Hard Rock Stadium.
Ajayi found his way into Miami head coach Adam Gase's doghouse when he expressed his unhappiness when learning that he would not start over Arian Foster. But none of that seemed to matter on Sunday when Ajayi was in the end zone celebrating his winning score.
"We did it, we pulled it off, a deep sigh of relief," said Ajayi, who certainly was no workhorse, carrying the ball just seven times for 28 yards, when asked what went through his mind when he crossed the goal line. "We definitely didn't want to be in that situation, of course (having to go to overtime) but that's just how the game ended up in my hands and I just wanted to make sure I got in the end zone."
09/26/16 - RB Jay Ajayi (seven carries, 28 yards, 1 TD), who had the game-winning 11-yard touchdown run in Sunday's 30-24 overtime victory against Cleveland, seemed pleased with his performance. Ajayi, who was left home in Miami for the opener at Seattle because he reportedly didn't react well to being named the backup, said Sunday's performance was a bit of redemption.
09/19/16 - RB Jay Ajayi, making his season debut against New England on Sunday after being left home for last week's game at Seattle, ended with five carries for 13 yards and four receptions for 31 yards for a total of 44 yards of offense. Ajayi also lost a fumble. But apparently he thought he had a decent showing. "Besides the fumble," he said, "I think I did pretty well."
09/02/16 - RB Jay Ajayi lost a fumble and had a dropped pass in the preseason finale against Tennessee, which might have cast doubt on his readiness to start over Arian Foster. Coach Adam Gase expressed disappointment in Ajayi, saying he expects more based on what he'd seen more during training camp and preseason.
08/21/16 - RB Jay Ajayi had six carries for 19 yards against Dallas and didn't do much to show he could be the No. 1 running back. Ajayi, a hard-nosed runner, still must show most elusiveness and an understanding of pass protection.
