Draft Scout Snapshot: 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

08/15/17 - RB Jay Ajayi is no longer in the NFL's concussion protocol, multiple outlets reported on Tuesday. Ajayi sustained the concussion on July 31 and returned to practice on Sunday. The 24-year-old is eligible for full-contact work and could be ready to play in Thursday's preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens. After failing to accompany the team for its season opener, Ajayi led Miami with 1,272 rushing yards and eight touchdowns in 15 games last season to earn his first Pro Bowl selection. The 6-foot, 223-pound Ajayi also caught 27 passes for 151 yards.
08/12/17 - RB Jay Ajayi, who went through some non-contact, individual drills Saturday, remains in concussion protocol. Ajayi has appeared at practice the last few days but has spent the vast majority of his time running, catching passes or watching.
08/07/17 - RB Jay Ajayi, who has been sidelined for the last week with a concussion, was running and catching passes on a side field during Monday's practice. Ajayi jogged around the edge of the practice field, ran sprints of 30 or 40 yards at a good pace, and then caught passes of maybe 20 yards. As a side note, Ajayi wasn't wearing sunglasses on a bright sunny day, perhaps an indication his eyes aren't sensitive to light, which is sometimes a problem associated with concussions.
There's still no timetable on Ajayi's return because he's in the NFL concussion protocol.
08/02/17 - RB Jay Ajayi has been diagnosed with a concussion and ruled out of Wednesday's practice, the Miami Dolphins confirmed. Ajayi, 24, was hit hard during Monday's full-contact practice and was escorted off the field. He will miss at least a week of drills, sources told the Miami Herald. The 6-0, 223-pound Ajayi led the Dolphins last season with 1,272 rushing yards and eight touchdowns in 15 games to earn his first Pro Bowl selection.
06/13/17 - RB Jay Ajayi has been one of the most surprising players on the field during OTAs (organized team activities) and the start of mini-camp, and it has nothing to do with his physical improvement. Ajayi has opened eyes with his mental improvement, which is, to put it mildly, far ahead of a year ago. "That would probably be beyond an understatement," coach Adam Gase said. "It's slowed down for him a lot from where we were last year at this time compared to where we are right now. The questions that he brings up to us are very detailed. They're really beyond next-level questions. They're almost kind of quarterback-ish questions for a running back.
01/09/17 - RB Jay Ajayi was limited to 33 yards on 16 carries in a postseason loss to Pittsburgh. During the regular season, Ajayi rushed for 204 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Dolphins to a 30-15 win over the Steelers. It was the first of three 200-yard games during the season for Ajayi.
01/02/17 - RB Jay Ajayi ended the regular season with 1,271 yards rushing, the third-best total in franchise history. Ajayi was fourth in the NFL in rushing and seventh in yards per carry (4.9).
12/28/16 - RB Jay Ajayi (shoulder), who seemed to be in discomfort late in the game against Buffalo, was limited in Wednesday's practice but appears set to play Sunday against New England. Ajayi has rushed for 596 yards against AFC East opponents. He has two 200-yard rushing games against Buffalo and a 111-yard game against the New York Jets.
He had five carries for 14 yards against New England in September.
12/26/16 - RB Jay Ajayi, who rushed for 206 yards against Buffalo, seemed to sustain a shoulder injury late in Saturday's game at Buffalo. But coach Adam Gase said Ajayi's condition was more the result of having 32 carries rather than a debilitating injury.
12/18/16 - RB Jay Ajayi is up to 1,007 rushing yards, becoming the 10th player in franchise history to accomplish that feat. Ajayi is averaging 4.8 yards per carry.
