Update: Dolphins head coach Adam Gase said Foster will work with the first-team offense throughout training camp, the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: The Dolphins are easing Foster in with limited reps, but any work he does get will presumably come with the starters. Isaiah Pead also got some first-team reps at Monday's practice, as Damien Williams (undisclosed) and Jay Ajayi (knee) were both unavailable. With Williams set to return Tuesday and Ajayi not expected to miss much time, Pead still projects to land on the wrong side of the roster bubble. Foster, meanwhile, figures to compete with Ajayi for the lead-back role in Miami's backfield. Based on the team's comments so far, Foster seems to have the upper hand.
A person familiar with the situation said Foster has agreed to meet Tuesday with the Dolphins, who have had trouble finding a replacement for Lamar Miller. The person confirmed the visit to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Monday because the Dolphins have not commented on the upcoming meeting.
Foster is recovering from surgery to repair a torn Achilles tendon and has said he plans to play this season. He made the Pro Bowl four times in seven years with the Houston Texans, who released him this month after he missed 12 games last season because of injuries.
