Lamar Miller RB MIA 2 Days
Lamar Miller sustained a concussion during Sunday's Week 14 game at Pittsburgh and will not return.
Miller took a big hit during the second quarter and got up very slowly. It wasn't clear if he lost consciousness, but the Dolphins announced the concussion about 30 minutes later. Miller's day is done with six carries for 20 yards and two catches for 13 yards, as he shared work with Daniel Thomas even before the injury. Miller will be in a race to get cleared ahead of a Week 15 home game against the Patriots.

Lamar Miller (pectoral) remained limited in Thursday's practice.
There's been no indication that Miller's injury is a concern. Running as the Dolphins' clear-cut No. 1 back in the absence of Daniel Thomas, Miller is locked into 15-20 touches, and will be an RB2 against the Steelers.

Lamar Miller (pectoral) was limited in Wednesday's practice.
Miller is making his first appearance on the injury report all season. Miller posted a respectable 72 yards on 22 carries against a stout Jets defense last week. He'll be a borderline RB2 this week against the Steelers.
Lamar Miller RB MIA 8 Days
Dolphins OC Mike Sherman told reporters Monday he and coach Joe Philbin "have never discussed" what Lamar Miller might be able to do with more carries.
It's dumbfounding that the thought never crossed either coach's mind, but the fact that Miami ran 82 offensive plays in Sunday's win over the Jets, coupled with Daniel Thomas' multi-week ankle injury led to 22 carries for Miller. Although Miller gained just 3.3 YPC, that is a quality average given the stout opponent, and the run game was a huge part of the Dolphins' Week 13 win. Miller will close out the fantasy season with a string of favorable matchups (@ PIT, vs. NE, @ BUF) as a viable RB2/flex.

Lamar Miller rushed 10 times for eight yards and caught four passes for 39 yards in Sunday's Week 12 loss to the Panthers.
Miller had no shot against the Panthers' elite front seven, routinely taking hits behind the line of scrimmage and getting knocked back for huge losses when he tried to escape. The only silver lining for owners is that Daniel Thomas went down with what looked like a serious ankle injury. There's potential for Miller to finally be an every-down back come Week 13, but he'll be facing an elite Jets run defense while playing with an inept offensive line.

Lamar Miller rushed four times for 17 yards and caught two passes for 20 yards in Sunday's 20-16 Week 11 win over the Chargers.
Miller played behind a much improved Daniel Thomas (11 touches, 59 yards, one TD), barely even getting a chance to establish himself. As we've known for weeks now, this hot-hand approach isn't going anywhere. Miller has now recorded 11 or fewer touches in six of ten games and is averaging just 10.4 carries per day. With two very tough matchups on deck (vs. CAR, at NYJ), owners would be hard-pressed to use him as anything more than a weak flex.

Lamar Miller rushed seven times for two yards in Monday night's Week 10 loss to the Bucs.
Trent Richardson-esque. There was just nowhere for Miller to go. The Dolphins opened the night with a Miller run to the left edge. It lost one yard. Things never got better behind an offensive line that was minus one of its better blockers in LG Richie Incognito. The good news is Miller played significantly more than Daniel Thomas once again, out-touching him 9-4. Miller caught two passes for nine yards. He'll be an RB2 against San Diego's No. 20 run defense in Week 11.
