After sitting out Miami's opening exhibition game, running back Arian Foster is expected to make his debut with the Dolphins Friday night against the host Dallas Cowboys.

Foster, 29, is a four-time Pro Bowl back who was cut by Houston after being limited to four games last season after suffering a ruptured Achilles tendon in a game against the host Dolphins last October..

Foster, who signed a one-year deal with Miami, has been slowed by numerous injuries over the past few years and hasn't played a complete season in his past three years.

After starting training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list, Foster was back on the field a few days later and has been splitting time on Miami's first team offense with Jay Ajayi.

Miami coach Adam Gase said "I'm pretty sure he's going to go. I want to see him go with the first group and see how we operate."

Foster is going into his eighth NFL season and has rushed for 6,472 yards with 54 touchdowns.
