Miller rushed for 61 yards and a touchdown as the Dolphins downed the Bears 27-14 on Sunday.
Miller also had another score negated by a holding penalty so his numbers could have been better. With Knowshon Moreno out for the season there really isn't another back on the roster to challenge Miller for touches. He should be the bell cow from this point forward.

Miller (knee) is probable for Sunday's game against the Bears, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Despite some limitations at practice this week, the probable designation puts Miller on track to suit up Sunday against a Bears' defense that has allowed an average of 103.7 rushing yards to date. With Knowshon Moreno out for the season, Miller is slated to head the Miami backfield in the coming weeks, backed up by Damien Williams and Daniel Thomas.

Miller (knee) was listed as a limited participant at practice Thursday, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
We'll revisit Miller's status Friday, but so far there has been nothing to suggest that his availability for Sunday's game against the Bears is in any danger. With Knowshon Moreno out for the season, Miller is on track to head the Miami backfield going forward, with Damien Williams and Daniel Thomas set to work in reserve/complementary roles.

Miller (knee) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice, the Dolphins' official site reports.
Miller was one of 11 players listed as limited by the Dolphins on Wednesday, with his status worth tracking as Sunday's game against the Bears approaches. With Knowshon Moreno now out for the season, Miller's status as the Dolphins' lead back looks secure, assuming his health. That said, those looking to insure Miller, whose knee issue isn't believed to be serious or who are simply of a mind to secure a back who is now an injury away from an expanded role, are advised to consider Damien Williams, who nows slots in as Miller's top backup.

Miller (foot) is not practicing Tuesday, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.
Miller is not thought to be nursing a particularly bothersome foot ailment, so his absence from Tuesday's practice is likely for rest purposes, especially with fellow running back Knowshon Moreno (knee) being placed on injured reserve Tuesday. As a result of Moreno's season-ending injury, Miller is now the Dolphins' clear-cut No. 1 running back and has excelled in new coordinator Bill Lazor's run heavy scheme to date. While Miami currently ranks sixth league-wide with 136.2 rushing yards per game, Miller places third among running backs with 5.2 yards per carry. Although Miller's per carry average could regress some due to a higher volume of touches moving forward, the third-year back should improve on his 66.0 yards per game mark as Miami's featured ball-carrier.

Miller (foot) figures to lead the Dolphins' backfield for the rest of the season after Knowshon Moreno was placed on injured reserve Tuesday with a torn ACL.
Miller started the last three games after Moreno suffered a dislocated elbow in Week 2, and he has played very well for the most part, averaging almost 5.5 yards per carry while scoring three touchdowns. With backups Damien Williams and Daniel Thomas not likely to get a significant portion of the backfield workload, Miller will join a relatively small list of workhorse backs in the NFL.

Miller (foot) had 14 carries for 53 rushing yards and a touchdown, as well as three catches on three targets for 40 receiving yards Sunday against the Packers.
Despite Knowshon Moreno returning from a dislocated elbow, Miller got the start and greatly outperformed the former-Bronco, who rushed six times for 10 yards and caught one pass for eight yards. Miller has now put together three solid games while starting, rushing for 108 yards in Week 3, scoring two touchdowns in Week 4 and adding another touchdown Sunday. However, it wouldn't be surprising to see his workload decrease in Week 7 against the Bears, with Moreno getting more touches as he continues to recover from his elbow injury.

Though teammate Knowshon Moreno is active, Miller (foot) remains on track to start Sunday's game against the Packers, according to Adam Beasley of Miami Herald.
Meanwhile, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald had earlier estimated that Moreno might be in line for about 8-10 carries, depending on the flow of the game. In any case, given how well Miller has run of late (averaging 5.7 yards per carry to date), he figures to see a healthy chunk of carries this week, while taking aim at a Green Bay defense that has allowed a league-high 163 rushing yards per game thus far.

So is fellow running back Knowshon Moreno, though it's unclear how much action he will be up for in his return to action from an elbow injury. Given how effective Miller has been of late, averaging 5.7 yards per carry to date, he figures to see a good chunk of work Sunday in any case, with his Week 6 fantasy prospects bolstered by the fact that the Packers have allowed a league-high 163 rushing yards per game to date.
