Dolphins running back Malcolm Brown drew the start during Sunday's game against the Falcons. He logged four touches for nine yards over the team's first five plays but then exited with a quad injury that forced him out for the remainder of the contest.
The fact that Brown started this game speaks to the fact that Miami does not have an established clear-cut No. 1 back in its backfield even though Myles Gaskin has consistently paced the team in touches and yards. With that, if Brown were to miss time, Gaskin would likely start while dual-threat back Salvon Ahmed takes on a larger depth role.
