According to a report, Miami Dolphins running back Myles Gaskin has tested positive for COVID-19.

This is certainly not what the Dolphins need right now, as they need all hands on deck for their playoff push.

Fortunately, the team does not have a game this weekend. Given the fortunate timing of Miami’s bye week and the fact that Gaskin is fully vaccinated, it sounds like there’s a chance he could “test out of protocols” and return to action without missing a game.

Over 13 games this season, Gaskin has racked up 526 yards and three touchdowns on 154 carries. He’s in his third season at the NFL level.

The Dolphins are 6-7 on the season and are trying to shock the NFL world by securing a playoff bid.
