Miller totaled 73 yards on 19 carries and secured four of seven targets for 16 yards in Saturday's 34-16 divisional-round loss to the Patriots.

EDGE Analysis

The Texans were able to stick with the running game until late into the contest, as they surprisingly hung tough into the fourth quarter. Miller responded with another strong outing, and his four receptions tied him for second on the team with backfield mate Jonathan Grimes. Miller posted 73 yards apiece in each of Houston's two postseason contests, and he acquitted himself impressively with the career-high 268 carries he saw in 2016. The former Miami Hurricane topped the 1,000-yard mark for the second time in his career over 14 games, while also serving as a valuable part of the passing game with 31 receptions.

Miller rushed 31 times for 73 yards and had a four-yard touchdown run in Houston's 27-14 win over Oakland in their wild-card round playoff game Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

The rushing attempts were a season high for Miller, who was expected to carry a big load after being shut down the final two weeks of the season. The Raiders managed to hold him in check, but the Texans cashed in on some short fields and got effective quarterback play. Despite the limited impact Miller had on the game, the Texans will roll out the same game plan next weekend against either New England or Kansas City.

Miller (ankle) did not draw an injury designation for Saturday's playoff game against the Raiders.

EDGE Analysis

After practicing in full this week, Miller is in line to return to the Texans' starting lineup Saturday after being held out of the team's last two regular season tilts. Miller relayed to the Houston Chronicle that he's feeling refreshed in advance of Saturday's contest. "I think it helped me out a lot," Miller said of his time off. "I feel fresh right now. I feel good." Look for Miller, who carried 268 times for 1,073 yards and five TDs in 14 games this season, to be busy this weekend in a game that could lean toward the run, with Brock Osweiler starting at QB for the Texans and Connor Cook helming the Raiders offense.

Miller practiced fully Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

In the absence of any setbacks as the week progresses, Miller is set to return to the Texans' starting lineup Saturday against the Raiders after missing the last two games of the regular season with an ankle injury. In doing so, Miller, who carried 268 times for 1,073 yards and five TDs in 14 games this season, will be making his NFL postseason debut.

Miller (ankle) is "feeling better" and expected to suit up for Saturday's wild-card game against the Raiders, the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Miller landed on Texans injury reports throughout the second half of the season due to ankle concerns, which eventually forced DNPs for the last two contests. His progression to running implies steady recovery to date, but his activity level in Wednesday's practice will provide the best indication that a return is nigh.

Miller (ankle) is expected to be ready to play Saturday when the Texans host the Raiders in their upcoming playoff game, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Miller, who has missed the last two weeks, figures to be an important figure in Saturday's game as the Texans' quarterback situation is unclear. Tom Savage, who started the final two games of the regular season, suffered a concussion in Sunday's loss to the Titans and was replaced by former starter Brock Osweiler. Whether the quarterback is Savage or Osweiler, head coach Bill O'Brien is likely to lean on the rushing attack.

Miller (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Titans, the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Along with Miller, the Texans also ruled out fellow starters Jadeveon Clowney, John Simon and Jay Prosch, with the trio now targeting a return to action for the upcoming postseason. Meanwhile, Alfred Blue is once again in line head the team's rushing attack in Week 17.

Miller (ankle) did not practice for a third straight day Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Earlier in the week, Houston head coach Bill O'Brien said he was going to be smart as it relates to his injured players, so we shouldn't be surprised if Miller is inactive come Sunday against the Titans. If he doesn't dress or is used in a limited fashion, Alfred Blue will be the main back in Week 17.

Miller (ankle) didn't practice Thursday, the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Miller status for the Texans' regular-season finale Sunday against the Titans thus remains cloudy and if the team elects to hold Miller out, with an eye toward keeping him healthy for the playoffs, Alfred Blue would be in line head the team's rushing attack once again in Week 17.

Miller (ankle) didn't practice Wednesday, the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Per the report, Miller has been making progress, but his status for the Texans' regular-season finale has yet to be determined. In the event that the team elects to hold Miller out, with keeping him healthy for the playoffs in mind, Alfred Blue would be in line to fill in for Miller at running back once again this weekend.
