Daniel Thomas RB MIA 4 Months

Daniel Thomas (ankle) remained out of Dolphins practice on Thursday.

It's unclear how serious Thomas' aggravation of his high-ankle sprain is. He should be considered questionable for Week 16. What Thomas is able to do on Friday will be key. Thomas won't be a recommended FLEX option if he suits up against Buffalo.

Daniel Thomas (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

Thomas aggravated his high-ankle sprain last week. It doesn't sound like it's too serious because Thomas practiced a bit on Tuesday. If Thomas plays this week against Buffalo, he'll be part of the committee with Lamar Miller.

Daniel Thomas aggravated his left ankle sprain during the fourth quarter of Sunday's win over the Patriots.

It doesn't look like a serious aggravation as Thomas was able to get some limited work in during Tuesday's workout. For now, he can be penciled in as a low-upside committee back behind Lamar Miller. The Dolphins are in an obvious letdown spot as they travel to the Ralph to take on the Bills this week. It would be very dangerous to assume they are going to get a lead and pound the rock.

Daniel Thomas rushed five times for 16 yards in Miami's Week 15 win over the Patriots, adding a two-yard catch for a touchdown.

Thomas got out-touched 16-6 by Lamar Miller, but notched the duo's only score. It was yet another game where the Dolphins seemed to have no real plan for the workload delineation amongst their running backs. Thomas will be a low-ceiling, touchdown-dependent FLEX option for the fantasy finals in Week 16.

Dolphins OC Mike Sherman acknowledged the team didn't even envision Daniel Thomas (ankle) playing in Week 14 as of last Wednesday.

Thomas went on to rush 16 times for 105 yards and a touchdown in one of the best games of his wholly underwhelming, three-year career. "It was a possibility he might not be able to come back [this season]," said Sherman. "On Wednesday, we never envisioned him even playing this week. It's a credit to our training staff and to him." With Lamar Miller now facing concussion testing, Thomas has a chance to be a feature back in Week 14 versus New England.

Daniel Thomas (ankle) is listed as questionable for Week 14 after a limited practice Friday.

Despite the upgrade on the injury report, Thomas is either expected to be inactive or play minimal snaps Sunday at Heinz Field. Lamar Miller remains a roll-of-the-dice flex option coming off of a season high 23 touches.
