Miller had 16 carries for 47 rushing yards and one catch on two targets for 10 receiving yards Sunday against the Patriots.
Miller continues to lead the Dolphins' backfield, but he's failed to reach even 60 rushing yards in four-straight games. Up next is a Week 16 matchup against a Vikings defense allowing the 10th-most rushing yards per game this season.

Miller had 12 carries for 53 yards and caught 5-of-5 targets for 36 yards in Sunday's 28-13 loss to the Ravens.
Miller got off to a great start, racking up a large chunk of his production in the first quarter. He and the rest of the Dolphins' skill players struggled to generate much offense over the final three quarters though. He continues to be a steady source of production, although he hasn't rushed for over 100 yards since Sept. 21. In Week 15, Miller could find some running lanes against an average Patriots' rush defense.

Miller had 13 carries for 56 yards and a touchdown, adding two receptions for 11 yards on three targets, in Monday's 16-13 win over the Jets.
Miller dominated the workload, while Daniel Thomas recorded just one carry and one reception for a combined eight yards. Miller got the only goal-line carry, which he took for a four-yard touchdown to tie the game in the fourth quarter. It was otherwise a rather unremarkable night for the running back, as his numbers largely fell in line with expectations. He has mostly done a nice job this season, and while there's something to be said for consistency, he's yet to produce a truly big game. Next up for the Dolphins is a matchup with the Ravens that should heavily favor the passing game.

Miller (knee) is listed as active for Monday's game against the Jets.
While the Jets' D has been solid against the run allowing an average of 86.2 YPG on the ground to date -- Miller will take aim at the unit Monday, minus the services of key cog, Muhammad Wilkerson.

Miller (shoulder) is listed as probable for Monday's game against the Jets.
Miller's availability was never in question, as he played through the injury last Sunday and was able to practice in full throughout the week. He'll face a Jets defensive Sunday that currently ranks fourth against the run (86.2 YPG) but will be without the services of Muhammed Wilkerson (toe) in Week 13.

Miller (shoulder/knee) carried the ball 12 times for 59 yards and caught his lone target for eight yards in Sunday's 39-36 loss at Denver.
Miller was questionable heading into the game, but looked good at times, including a nice 22-yard scamper at one point. No other Dolphins's runner had more than three carries, although Daniel Thomas scored a short touchdown. Miller will have another tough test next week against a solid Jets' rush defense.

Miller (shoulder/knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Broncos.
He's out there if you need him this week, with Daniel Thomas and Damien Williams on hand to spell Miller if either his knee or shoulder issue impair him at all as Sunday's game progresses.

Though Miller (shoulder/knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Broncos, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports that the running back is expected to play in the contest.
With the Dolphins kicking off at 4:25 ET this week, it's a plus to see an optimistic nugget like this one from the Herald, though we'd still advise verifying Miller's status as Sunday's contest approaches, to be sure.

Miller (shoulder/knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Broncos, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Miller, who was able to practice in a limited fashion all week, had a knee ailment added to his existing shoulder issue on Friday's injury report. At this stage, we haven't heard anything to suggest that Miller's Week 12 status is in danger, but given that he is one of just two Dolphins listed as questionable this week, his status is worth monitoring and verifying as Sunday's 4:25 ET kickoff approaches. Meanwhile, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald relays that the running back expects to play Sunday, despite his questionable designation.

Miller (shoulder) was listed as limited at practice Thursday, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
We'll revisit Miller's status Friday, but it's possible that his transition from a full practice on Wednesday to a limited session Thursday could be maintenance-related, as opposed to indicative of a setback with his shoulder injury.
