He's averaged just 2.66 yards per carry since the start of last season but is still a useful pass-catcher out of the backfield.
Pittsburgh has a weaker pass defense, so Miami will attack through the air.Foster had three receptions for 62 yards against the tougher Seahawks D in Week 1.Speaking Monday, Dolphins coach Adam Gase made it sound like the team activated Foster for Week 6 because of his leadership qualities. Foster returned from a three-week hamstring pull and was expected to play a much bigger role.Foster handled five touches on 11 snaps as Jay Ajayi went bonkers for over 200 yards. He didn't even get in the game until the second quarter and played far behind Jay Ajayi and Damien Williams, who combined to score three touchdowns.Ajayi has posted back-to-back 200-yard rushing games on 54 total carries.
Foster's biggest contribution on Sunday was a horrible drop on third down over the middle.He's practiced fully this week and is obviously in no danger of sitting out Sunday's game against Buffalo.Foster is nearing 100 percent, but his role in the Dolphins' running game is still up in the air.Opponents are running against the Steelers just 29.8% of the time, the lowest rate in the league, and the Dolphins offense has struggled mightily over the last few games.They've run 41 and 43 plays in the last two games, the lowest totals for any team in any game so far this year.Reshad Jones (groin) will also be active for the Dolphins.
