Raheem Mostert, RB | MIA

Speaking at minicamp, Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel said of RB Raheem Mostert: "His expectations are to play Week 1 and we are not going to rush it ... when he's ready he'll be on the field."

It's hard to understand exactly how the Miami running back committee will shake out this year, but on money alone it looks like Chase Edmonds will be the primary back. Mostert is dealing with a knee cartilage injury that ended his season last September, and if healthy, it would appear he, Myles Gaskin, and Sony Michel are fighting for a portion of the early-down reps.

Taking it slow

In other words, Mostert won't participate in spring practices, which was probably to be expected. He played only nine games over the past two seasons, with the most recent issue being a knee injury that required October surgery to address chipped cartilage. The 30-year-old is part of a rebuilt, veteran backfield that also added Chase Edmonds and Sony Michel this offseason, while Myles Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed are the returning players of note. Mostert should compete for carries on early downs once he's healthy.

Not practicing yet

It's reportedly what Higgins expected, and he's no longer using a sling as he rehabs from labrum surgery in March. He'll presumably be absent or limited from offseason practices throughout May or June, but the 23-year-old wideout could make it back on the field at the end of July for the start of training camp. There's been no indication of concern about his availability for the regular season.
