Arian Foster injury update: Dolphins RB questionable vs. Bills

Foster is getting closer to full health, but his role in the backfield is uncertain after Jay Ajayi blew up last week.

Miami Dolphins running back Arian Foster is listed as questionable for the team's Week 7 game against the Buffalo Bills. Foster got in full practices every day this week and is largely expected to play.

Foster suffered a groin injury in Week 2 that kept him out of the next three games. The 30-year-old back has a long history of lingering muscle injuries and still isn't quite 100 percent. He was active in Week 6, but took a backseat to Jay Ajayi, who blew up for 204 rushing yards against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Foster saw just five touches and played 11 snaps, third behind Ajayi (48) and Damien Williams (12).

Fantasy impact: The Dolphins have been running a muddled committee all year, but they'll likely ride the hot hand after Ajayi's career game. Although Foster entered the year as the clear No. 1 back, injuries have derailed his season. Fantasy owners can't trust him right now and he belongs on the bench against the Bills, whose defense is getting back linebacker Shaq Lawson from shoulder surgery.
