Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours.

Barring any kind of setback, Arian Foster will play on Friday against the Dallas Cowboys. Foster, and quite a few other starters, sat out last week just to be cautious. With Foster set to play, many are wondering who will start. Jay Ajayi got the nod last week and struggled. In Ajayi's defense, the whole starting offensive unit was terrible. Even if Foster isn't the starter, barring injury, I see him as the Dolphins starter week 1.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day's round-up below.
