Ajayi probably has a concussion

In the old days of football, when you got what was most likely a severe concussion, they say you had your “bell rung” and then they threw you back into the game. No big deal.

So, nowadays when you hear that someone had their “bell rung,” it probably means that they have a concussion, the severity of which is to be determined. So, when I first heard that Miami Dolphins running back Jay Ajayi had his “bell rung” in training camp practice today, it was easy to jump to that conclusion.

NFL reporter James Walker says that Ajayi is being evaluated for just that.

“Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi is being evaluated for a concussion, according to head coach Adam Gase,” Walker tweets.

Damien Williams and Kenyan Drake are behind Ajayi on the depth chart and will most certainly see more reps if he is indeed out with a concussion. It’s probably a safe be that the Dolphins will handle this situation with caution as Ajayi is one of their most important players on offense.
