Jay Ajayi’s rushing total has deceased the past four games, but he might be feeling better this week than he has lately.

It has nothing to do with Ajayi’s health, but rather the possibility he might be getting back two-thirds of his injured blockers for Sunday’s game at Baltimore. Although it’s still early, Dolphins left tackle Branden Albert (wrist) and left guard Laremy Tunsil (shoulder) continued to go through drills Thursday — an obvious positive sign.

As the Dolphins worked out in the bubble for the portion of practice open to the media, linebacker Jelani Jenkins (knee/hand) and receiver DeVante Parker (back) rode bikes off on the side.

Center Mike Pouncey, recovering from a hip problem, was not seen.

Running back Kenyan Drake (knee) and defensive tackle Earl Mitchell (back) also were practicing.

As for Ajayi, he rushed for 214 yards against Buffalo before his totals dropped to 111 (Jets), 79 (Chargers), 77 (Rams) and 45 (49ers). But his best performances came with the Dolphins’ ideal starting five (Albert-Tunsil-Pouncey-Jermon Bushrod-Ja’Wuan James), so he no doubt will be very happy when Pouncey can return.
