Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi Being Evaluated For a Concussion

Dolphins Pro Bowl running back Jay Ajayi is being evaluated for a concussion and was unable to finish practice on Monday, James Walker of ESPN.com reports.

Ajayi got a lot of work in Miami’s first full-contact, full-padded practice of training camp. He ran the ball and caught several passes out of the backfield while taking some hits in the process. Dolphins safety T.J. McDonald, for example. had a big hit on Ajayi that knocked the tailback off his feet in one of Ajayi’s final plays.

It is vital for Ajayi, who led the Dolphins with 1,272 rushing yards, to stay healthy this season. Gase said earlier in the offseason that he will not be afraid to give Ajayi 300 carries if necessary, and the running back has worked diligently catching passes out of the backfield.
