DAVIE—Don’t forget about Damien Williams just because Kenyan Drake is tearing it up in his absence. The Dolphins believe their offense operates best with both guys in the game plan, and Williams has been pushing to get back on the field.

He was knocked out of the game at New England on Nov. 26 with a shoulder injury and hasn’t practiced or played since. He was on the field for some light work on the side last week, though, and coach Adam Gase did not rule him out for the upcoming game at Buffalo.

“We just gotta keep getting him stronger and then when the trainers say he’s ready to go on the field, we’ll put him on the field,” Gase said.

Multiple media reports had Williams’ injury as a dislocated shoulder, which typically sidelines a player for 2-3 weeks. The Dolphins haven’t specified anything other than it being a shoulder issue.

Williams put up 254 total yards and one touchdown after the Jay Ajayi trade and is one of Gase’s favorite weapons. He was third on the team in total touchdowns last season.

“We’re going to keep trying to get him ready to go, strengthen him up as much as we can,” Gase said. “I know this has been frustrating for him. He wants to get out there, he wants to help us. We need him. He’s a valuable piece of this team, not only on the team but his attitude.”

Gase planned to meet with the medical staff today to gauge the likelihood of getting Williams on the practice field Thursday or Friday.

Williams’ injury leaves Miami with inexperienced Senorise Perry and De’Veon Smith as the only other running backs on the roster behind Drake. Gase plugged Jakeem Grant, Jarvis Landry and MarQueis Gray into the backfield in Monday’s 27-20 win over New England.

Drake, meanwhile, had 234 yards and a touchdown on 48 carries over the last two games, plus eight catches for 100 yards.
