Miller gained 16 yards on six carries and caught his lone target for four yards in Houston's win over New Orleans in preseason Week 2.

EDGE Analysis

Miller played longer this week than he did in the preseason opener against the 49ers, but the production was unspectacular. The Houston attack is operating behind a makeshift offensive line, so we're not drawing too many conclusions from Miller's 2.7 yards per carry Saturday. Pay no mind to the stats; the goal is to keep Miller healthy through the exhibition games and have him ready for the regular season opener against the Bears.

Miller gained 30 yards on four carries in Sunday's preseason game against the 49ers.

EDGE Analysis

Suiting up in a Texans uniform for the first time, Miller was the only real bright spot for a Houston first-team offense that was held scoreless over three drives. With so many new pieces at the offensive skill positions, it could take the offense some time to gel, but there's little question Miller will be heavily involved. Other than one missed practice with a tweaked ankle, he's enjoyed a healthy training camp.

Miller, who did not practice Sunday, participated fully in Monday's session, Chris Abshire of CBS Houston reports.

EDGE Analysis

Miller tweaked his ankle Saturday, but continued to practice that day before being held out Sunday. Head coach Bill O'Brien said sitting him Sunday was merely a day off, though we can't help but think it was a precautionary decision in reaction to the ankle.

Miller did not practice Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Houston head coach Bill O'Brien said it was a routine day off for both Miller and Jadeveon Clowney. The decision to give Miller a day off may be related to the tweaked ankle he experienced Saturday.

Miller avoided a potential injury Saturday when he tweaked his ankle, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Miller was checked out by team trainers, was re-taped and finished practice without incident. "Yeah, it's good," Miller said afterward. "It's fine." Miller continues to work with the first-team offense, getting accustomed to new teammates while learning a new playbook.

Miller, who has steadily improved as a pass catcher during his four NFL seasons, said he works on catching balls throughout the offseason.

EDGE Analysis

As a rookie, Miller caught just six balls in 13 games, but by his final season in Miami, he caught 47 of 57 targets for 397 yards, including six catches of more than 20 yards. The Texans offense should be a radically different beast than what we saw last season. The forward pass will be in vogue and Miller is a big part of the makeover -- both as a runner and receiver.

In the wake of the departure of Arian Foster, Miller is expected to move into a key role with the Texans, as a key cog in the team's reshaped offense, the Houston Chronicle reports. "I'm looking forward to the opportunity," said Miller, who only hit the 20-carry mark once this past season with the Dolphins. "I've been following Houston for a while now. I know in this offense they get their running backs involved. I just wanted to be a part of that. I feel like with my skill set, I can help this offense."

EDGE Analysis

Miller rushed for a total of 872 yards and eight touchdowns on 194 carries with Miami last season, while adding 47 catches for 397 yards and two receiving scores. In the Houston offense, now helmed by quarterback Brock Osweiler, we'd expect Miller to see an increased workload and if he can hold up to the added pounding that entails, Miller is a candidate to see a nice uptick in production while clearly heading his new team's backfield.

Miller is expected to hit the open market once free agency opens at 4 PM ET on Wednesday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Miller's representatives and the Dolphins have been negotiating in the lead-up to March 9, but progress has been difficult to come by. Only 24 years old and with little wear on the tread, he'll likely garner significant interest from interested parties as an all-purpose threat. In his four-year career, Miller boasts a steady 4.6 YPC, 117 receptions, and 22 touchdowns in 61 games.

Miller and the Dolphins have been unable to agree on a price point for a multi-year contact, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Miller is reportedly seeking a salary above $5 million per season, but since the Dolphins appear unwilling to meet that desire, Miller could hit the open market when free agency opens March 9. Just 24 years old, Miller has averaged 4.6 yards per carry through his first four seasons, and posted 1,269 all-purpose yards and 10 touchdowns last season. Should Miller and the Dolphins fail to reach agreement on a new contract, his absence would leave rising second-year player Jay Ajayi as the top running back on Miami's roster.
