Jay Ajayi's rushing total has deceased the past four games, but he might be feeling better this week than he has lately. It has nothing to do with Ajayi's health, but rather the possibility he might be getting back two-thirds of his injured blockers for Sunday's game at Baltimore.

DAVIE — Here is what Miami Dolphins defensive coordinator Vance Joseph said Thursday: • Ndamukong Suh played outside his natural position four or five times last week. He likes to move him to end about twice a game. Suh is very, very bright. He understands the game. He does things right.

The enduring takeaway of Ndamukong Suh’s first year as a Dolphin: a very good player who made no tangible difference in the won/loss record, had seven games with three or fewer tackles, a player who had little use for coach Joe Philbin or defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle and who rubbed some teammates and team officials and the wrong way, coming off as cold or standoffish.
