DAVIE, Fla. (AP) Four-time Pro Bowl running back Arian Foster is a starter again.

Foster was listed with the first unit on the Miami Dolphins' depth chart Monday and will start their opener Sunday at Seattle less than 11 months after tearing his Achilles tendon while with the Houston Texans.

Signed by Miami in July, Foster rushed for only 5 yards on seven carries in the preseason, but beat out Jay Ajayi for the starting job.

Also winning starting jobs were two rookies: first-round pick Laremy Tunsil at left guard and second-rounder Xavien Howard at cornerback. Veteran newcomer Jermon Bushrod will start at right guard.

Missing practice were center Mike Pouncey (hip), receiver DeVante Parker (hamstring) and linebacker Jelani Jenkins (knee).
