Arian Foster injury update: Dolphins RB questionable vs. Steelers [Update]

The Dolphins and fantasy owners have been without Arian Foster for the past month.

Editor’s update: Foster will be a game-time decision as he will check things out during warmups, per Adam Schefter.

The Miami Dolphins are listing Arian Foster as questionable for their Week 6 matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Head coach Adam Gase said Foster would be a game-time decision, according to Miami Herald reporter Barry Jackson.

The veteran running back is recovering from a groin injury that sidelined him for the past three games. He did practice in a limited capacity last week and did the same this week.

Not seeing Foster get in a full practice since Week 2 is discouraging, so do not expect him to get a full workload whenever he does return. While Foster has been out, the Dolphins have used a committee of Jay Ajayi, Isaiah Pead, Damien Williams, and Kenyan Drake at running back.

Fantasy Impact: Even if Foster does play this week, he is not worth starting just yet. He would face a Steelers defense allowing the 11th-most fantasy points to running backs this season, but he probably would not get a full workload with as much time as he has missed.

Keep Foster on the bench this week.
