The Splash Zone 8/14/17: Jay Ajayi Returns To Practice

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.

After missing two weeks of practice due to a concussion, the Dolphins offensive star has returned. Jay Ajayi is still in the concussion protocol as he has yet to receiver medical clearance. Ajayi gave everyone a scare yesterday though as the running back left practice with a trainer but it turns out Ajayi was only dehydrated.

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