Second straight missed practice calls into question Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert’s status against Texans – The Denver Post

Miami Dolphins running back Raheem Mostert has his status in doubt for the team’s Sunday game against the Houston Texans after missing a second straight practice Thursday.

Mostert is listed on the Dolphins injury report as suffering from knee disease. Although he hasn’t missed a game with the Dolphins in 2022, Thursday marked the first time all season that Mostert has missed a second practice in a week.

After a cut to the knee meniscus cost him the 2021 season with the San Francisco 49ers in Game 1, Mostert has been on and off the team’s injury report. He was completely absent for Miami’s last two games before the bye week, wins over the Cleveland Browns and Chicago Bears.

Mostert, in 10 games and eight starts in 2022, is averaging 4.6 yards per carry with 543 total rushing yards and three touchdowns.

Mostert has a history of injuries. Prior to the 2021 knee injury he rehabilitated with and was careful with in the offseason and training camp, an MCL sprain and two separate high ankle sprains had cost him eight total games in 2020 after his breakout campaign in 2019 when he racked up a career-high 772 on the ground. yards and had his epic four touchdown performance in the 49ers’ NFC Championship win over the Green Bay Packers to reach the Super Bowl.

In 2017, an earlier MCL sprained knee cost him the season, and a broken forearm in 2018 cut that season short.

The other two Dolphins who did not participate in Thursday’s drills left tackle Terron Armstead and punter Thomas Morstead. Armstead hasn’t trained on back-to-back days since undergoing maintenance on a toe injury suffered in Week 1. He had trained on Wednesday. Morstead missed a second straight practice due to illness.

Outside linebacker Melvin Ingram returned from a veterans day off on Wednesday. Cornerback Keion Crossen (shoulder) and defensive tackle Raekwon Davis (knee) were upgraded for full participation after being restricted on Wednesday.

Linebacker Jerome Baker (hip), quarterback Teddy Bridgewater (knee) and tight end Tanner Conner (knee/back) were restricted for a second straight practice Thursday.
