The Miami Dolphins have an exciting season ahead of them as they head in to the 2015 NFL campaign.

The Dolphins made some major additions on both sides of the ball, bringing in wide receivers Kenny Stills and Greg Jennings, as well as signing tight end Jordan Cameron to give Ryan Tannehill some help, while the defense got a huge boost with the addition of Ndamukong Suh.

However, the Dolphins will have to be without rookie Jay Ajayi, who has now been ruled out for at least the first eight games of the season.

Ajayi Out

To make space following the signing of quarterback Logan Thomas, the Dolphins placed the rookie running back Ajayi on the Reserve/Injured (Designated for Return) list, according to ProFootballTalk.

The move shelves Ajayi for the first eight weeks of the season, with him unable to practice with the team until after Week 6, probably something the rookie needs least at this point of his career. 

Missing Wembley

Ajayi suffered a broken rib in Miami's fourth pre-season game and it will keep the Brit from making a playing return to England when the Dolphins take on the New York Jets at Wembley, later this season.

A fifth round pick out of Boise State in this year's draft, Ajayi was highly touted coming out of college, but concerns over a knee injury saw him fall to the fifth.

The Dolphins were hoping that Ajayi could come in immediately and backup starting running back Lamar Miller, but the injury has curtailed that wish.

As a junior at Boise State, Ajayi wan for 1,823 yards on 347 carries with 28 touchdowns. He recorded 3,796 yard on 678 carries, a 5.6 yards per attempt average, with 50 touchdowns in three years as a Bronco.
