After a couple of his late runs in Saturday’s 34-31 overtime win over the Bills, Dolphins running back Jay Ajayi seemed to be favoring his left shoulder and had it checked out by members of the team’s medical staff.

Ajayi kept going back into the game, though, and finished with 206 rushing yards that were essential to a win that helped the Dolphins book passage to the playoffs. On Monday, Dolphins coach Adam Gase said that Ajayi is “a little banged up,” which segues into the topic of how the Dolphins will approach Week 17.

Gase said he spoke to executive vice president of football operations Mike Tannenbaum and General Manager Chris Grier about whether the team would rest any players against the Patriots and said the team will approach this week like any other.
