Friday update: Mostert is listed as questionable for this weekend’s matchup against New England. If he were to miss the game, backup running backs Jeff Wilson Jr. and Salvon Ahmed would likely see extra work in the offense.
Thursday update: Raheem Mostert returned to practice on Thursday, per David Furones. Mostert did not practice on Wednesday with an ankle injury, but there’s a good chance he was also getting a bit of rest before they face the Patriots this week.
Miami Dolphins running back Raheem Mostert did not practice on Wednesday ahead of Week 8 with an ankle injury. The Dolphins take on the New England Patriots in Week 8. Mostert currently leads the Dolphins offense with 474 rushing yards, and he has found the end zone 11 times this season.

Fantasy football implications for Week 8
If Mostert is limited or does not play against the Patriots this week, we can expect to see Jeff Wilson Jr. take on the role of featured back. Unfortunately for the Dolphins, De’Von Achane is on injured reserve, and they are shallow at the position without Mostert as a sure thing.
Wilson has played in just a single game this season. He had one reception for four yards against the Eagles last week, and he has no carries this season. However, last season, he saw a lot more playing time as the backup RB and and finished the season with five touchdowns.
