The Splash Zone 9/24/16: Arian Foster Out For Sunday's Game Against The Cleveland Browns

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.

The Miami Dolphins have ruled out starting running back Arian Foster for Sunday's game. The Dolphins will be taking on a beaten up Cleveland Browns team and this is probably the perfect game to sit Foster. We are still not sure on who will be starting at running back. Jay Ajayi appears to be falling out of favor with this coaching staff while Isaiah Pead and Kenyan Drake have shown play making ability.

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