Miami Dolphins running back Raheem Mostert returned to practice on Thursday after missing Wednesday’s sessions with an ankle injury.
That’s a great sign for his chances of suiting up in Week 8 against the New England Patriots, especially for a Dolphins team that needs his production.
Miami is without rookie running back De’Von Achane due to a knee injury, so Mostert is being leaned on as the No. 1 back for now.

Mostert returned to practice on Thursday, which could mean that he ends up being left off the injury report entirely in Week 8.

Raheem Mostert anytime touchdown scorer
With Mostert back at practice, it’s safe to say that he at least has a shot to play on Sunday. So, I don’t mind taking him to find the end zone against New England this week.
The Patriots have a solid defense, but Mostert has been a touchdown machine, scoring 11 times (nine on the ground and twice through the air) in seven games this season.
It’s hard to argue with that production, and the Pats have allowed six rushing scores so far in 2023.
