I don't wish anyone an injury, but the silver lining is that we can now get a look at Laird and Gaskin who have better instincts than Ballage does. Still, Ballage is a talented back who would do well if used properly and had any kind of running room. He showed some of that last year.

The Dolphins placed starting running back Kalen Ballage on season-ending injured reserve on Tuesday.

Ballage carried 74 times for 135 yards this season, an average of 1.8 yards per carry, which is the second-worst average among running backs with at least 70 NFL carries in a season in league history. Phil Sarboe ran for 1.2 yards per carry for Brooklyn and Chicago in 1936, according to Pro Football Reference.

Ballage was a fourth-round pick from Arizona State. For the rest of this season, Miami figures to rely on undrafted rookie Patrick Laird, seventh-rounder Myles Gaskin and De’Lance Turner, added from the Ravens’ practice squad this season.
