Thursday update: Breida was a full participant in practice on Thursday, marking a second straight day for the Dolphins running back. He is on track to play in Week 11, and the question now is how the workload will be split between Breida and Salvon Ahmed, Patrick Laird, and DeAndre Washington.

Miami Dolphins running back Matt Breida was able to get a full practice in on Wednesday, per Palm Beach Post’s Joe Schad. Breida has been dealing with a hamstring injury since Week 8 against the Rams.

Starter Myles Gaskin was put on injured reserve after that game and could come off I.R. next week. Last week it was Salvon Ahmed’s turn to lead at running back and he did well, scoring a touchdown and accumulating 90 yards. The question is, will Breida cut into Ahmed’s work or even take the lead role coming off his injury? The answer is probably not. Breida may have been able to win the job if he was healthy, but it looks like Ahmed has at least given himself another shot to start in Week 11 against the Denver Broncos.

Breida hasn’t been given much work when healthy this season, rushing 37 times for 128 yards and catching seven passes for 79 yards with no touchdowns. He should see work this week behind Ahmed, which could cut somewhat into his touches, but not enough to have fantasy value.
