Arian Foster isn't quite ready for the start of training camp after all.
The veteran running back will begin camp on the physically unable to perform list just a week after telling reporters he was healthy. Foster missed much of the 2015 season after tearing his Achilles' tendon, and only signed with Miami last week.
However, the Dolphins seem overly alarmed about Foster's situation; this is more of a precautionary move than anything.
Foster is one of five players who won't be on the field Friday for the team's first practice.
The others on PUP: corners Xavier Howard (as expected) and Bobby McCain, running back Damien Williams and linebacker Zach Vigil.
Furthermore, the Dolphins are still awaiting definition on Dion Jordan, who remains indefinitely suspended after failing three drug tests. Jordan applied for reinstatement in early June.
