Raheem Mostert Won't Need Offseason Surgery

Monday, January 15, 12:12 PM

Miami Dolphins running back Raheem Mostert (ankle, knee) and safety Jevon Holland (knee) aren't going to need surgery in the offseason. For Mostert, he missed the team's final two regular season games before returning in Saturday night's loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in the wild-card round. In his return in the frigid conditions in KC, Mostert had only eight rushing attempts for 33 yards and caught one pass for a loss of three yards. The 31-year-old had easily his best year in 2023 with Miami, picking up his first 1,000-yard rushing season while also scoring a league-high 21 touchdowns (18 rushing, three receiving). Mostert will be back with Miami in 2024, but he'll not only face regression in all categories, but he'll most likely also see fewer backfield touches with the emerging Achane earning a bigger role.

Matt Eberflus Lauds Roschon Johnson's Development

Tuesday, February 27, 4:26 PM

On the podium at the 2024 NFL Combine, Chicago Bears head coach Matt Eberflus said he "loves where Roschon Johnson is in his development." This was in response to a question about Johnson's potential prospects of being the team's lead back in 2024. The former Texas Longhorn rushed 81 times for 352 yards and two touchdowns and caught 34 passes for 209 yards in his rookie season after being selected in the fourth round of the 2023 NFL Draft. 25-year-old ball-carrier Khalil Herbert remains on the roster, while veteran D'Onta Foreman is a free agent. While Eberflus' comments are a good sign, it's far too early to project Johnson's potential workload. With a strong free agent and underrated rookie running back class available this offseason, the organization could easily add to its running back room.
