Miami Dolphins head coach Bryan Flores has said that he wants to give all three running backs, Myles Gaskin, Malcolm Brown and Salvon Ahmed work this season. In the first preseason game, it was Brown who got the start, but this week against the Atlanta Falcons it was all Myles Gaskin on the team’s first drive.

Gaskin had 26 yards rushing and 31 yards receiving on the opening drive and rushed for a touchdown from one-yard out. On the second drive they gave Ahmed the work, but when they got to the nine-yard line, Gaskin came in and caught an eight-yard touchdown pass.

Flores gave all three running backs work with the first team in this one, as Tua Tagovailoa played the entire first half and Brown saw the majority of work on their third drive, but Gaskin was no doubt the starter and every-down back, as he rushed six times for 27 yards and caught four passes for 44 more, while getting into the end zone twice.
