1 Min Read

Miami Dolphins star running back Jay Ajayi is having a very big week. Not only is Ajayi preparing to play in front of a hometown crowd in London, England this Sunday, but he is now the first NFL player to have his very own Twitter emoji.

On Wednesday, the NFL and Twitter celebrated Ajayi’s triumphant return to the U.K. with the #JayTrain emoji.

The good news didn’t stop there. On Thursday, the Miami Herald‘s Barry Jackson reported that despite a lingering knee injury, head coach Adam Gase said that Ajayi will be ready to play come Sunday.

The Dolphins have a lot to prove this Sunday after their disappointing loss in Week 3. While Ajayi will definitely leave it all on the field to try and the get the win, his history-making emoji is a victory all on its own.
