Done for season

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-21

Ahmed (foot) is expected to miss the remainder of the 2023 season, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Ahmed suffered a foot injury this past week and was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, but it now appears the injury is a season-ending one. With De'Von Achane (knee) banged up, Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson could operate as the team's primary options in the backfield Friday versus the Jets.

Goes to IR

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-21

Miami placed Ahmed (foot) on its injured reserve list Tuesday, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

It's not immediately clear when Ahmed sustained the foot injury, but it's apparently severe enough to keep him off the field for at least the Dolphins' next four games. Until he's ready to come back, Jeff Wilson is likely to see more work between the tackles.

Scores in win over Raiders

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-20

Ahmed carried the ball three times for six yards during Sunday's 20-13 win over Las Vegas. He also secured all three of his targets for 25 yards and one touchdown.

Ahmed benefited from extra utilization behind Raheem Mostert due to De'Von Achane (knee), who was playing in his first game back from IR, exiting early. It remains to be seen whether Achane will be available for Friday's divisional matchup against the Jets, but if he ends up missing more time, Ahmed will stand to once again handle an increased reserve role. Jeff Wilson would also stand to be made active if Achane isn't available.

Remains involved in loss to Chiefs

Ahmed carried the ball three times for four yards during Sunday's 21-14 loss to the Chiefs He also secured two of three targets for eight yards.

Ahmed saw a similar workload to Jeff Wilson during Sunday's loss in Frankfurt, while both worked behind starter Raheem Mostert. Only Mostert was able to get anything going versus Kansas City's formidable defense, however, and with De'Von Achane (knee) potentially coming off IR for Week 11, after Miami's bye, Ahmed's opportunities could quickly diminish.

Works as No. 2 back in loss

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-23

Ahmed carried the ball twice for three yards during Sunday's 31-17 loss to the Eagles. He secured one of two targets but did not compile any receiving yardage.

Ahmed was ineffective against a stout Philadelphia defensive front, but it was notable to see him work as the next man up behind Raheem Mostert even with Jeff Wilson making his season debut. That pecking order could shift as Wilson further distances himself from his health issues, but heading into a Week 8 matchup against New England only Mostert is a sure bet for relevant volume.

Scores vs. Panthers

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-16

Ahmed carried the ball six times for 23 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 42-21 win over Carolina.

Ahmed worked behind Raheem Mostert (115 rushing yards and three total TDs) during Sunday's blowout win over the Panthers, though Chris Brooks (ankle) also handled six carries before being forced out during the fourth quarter. It looks probably Jeff Wilson (ribs) will healthy enough to make his season debut Week 8 against Philadelphia, though, and if operating at 100 percent he would stand to work ahead of Ahmed as a complement to Mostert.

Healthy scratch against Giants

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-08

Ahmed (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Ahmed has seen his role diminish both on offense and special teams since the start of the season. A groin injury sidelined him in Week 3, but it now appears that Chris Brooks has moved ahead of him on the depth chart.

No touches Week 4

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-02

Ahmed did not handle a carry during Sunday's 48-20 loss to the Bills.

Ahmed, in his return from a groin injury that forced him to sit out Week 3, played just one offensive snap during Sunday's divisional loss and did not record a touch. Raheem Mostert and De'Von Achane appear to have established themselves as the clear top options in Miami's backfield, so Ahmed will remain off the fantasy radar heading into the Dolphins' matchup against the Giants in Week 5.

Suits up Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-01

Ahmed (groin) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Bills.

Ahmed missed the Dolphins' 70-20 win over the Broncos in Week 3, but he'll be back in uniform Sunday. That said, Ahmed figures to work in a complementary role in his return, with Raheem Mostert and De'Von Achane - who both racked up big numbers versus Denver - on track to continue to lead the team's backfield in Week 4.
