Miller rushed 15 times for 46 yards and brought in two of three targets for 25 yards in the Texans' 20-13 win over the Bills on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Miller couldn't get much going on the ground against a feisty Bills defense, but he clawed his way to a serviceable fantasy line with the help of his contributions through the air. The veteran back had dressed but not played in last Sunday night's overtime victory against the Cowboys due to a chest injury, but he appeared to be without limitations versus Buffalo. He'll look to up his numbers overall against the Jaguars in a tough Week 7 matchup.

Miller (chest) practiced fully Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Miller was limited Wednesday, but the running back's full participation Thursday backs his previous assertion that he'll play Sunday against the Bills. In his looming return to action, Miller is poised to head the Texans' Week 6 backfield, with Alfred Blue set to return to his normal backup/complementary role.

Miller (chest) was listed as a limited participant at Wednesday's practice, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Per Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle,Miller indicated that he'll definitely play this weekend, a notion that was echoed by coach Bill O'Brien. We'll nonetheless track the running back's status in the coming days to see if the Texans end up listing him as questionable come Friday, or remove him from their final Week 6 injury report altogether.

Coach Bill O'Brien said Miller (chest) will return for Week 6 against the Bills, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Texans kept Miller active for Sunday's 19-16 win over Dallas, but he didn't actually play any snaps. It's fair to wonder if he'll return to action with the same kind of workload he handled the first four weeks of the season (16.5 touches per game), considering Alfred Blue made a nice impression with 119 scrimmage yards while playing 79 of 80 snaps in Sunday's game. The Texans also hope to have Dont'a Foreman (Achilles) back in the mix when he's first eligible to return from the PUP list for Week 7.

Although Miller (chest) is active for Sunday night's game versus the Cowboys, he is "not likely to play," according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

EDGE Analysis

The Texans appear to be keeping all their options open at running back. With Miller available but likely to remain on the sideline Sunday, barring an emergency, Alfred Blue is in line to draw the start in his place, with Tyler Ervin and Buddy Howell on hand to provide the team with backfield depth.

Miller (chest) is active for Sunday night's game against the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

There was a degree of pessimism from the Texans on Saturday night about Miller's health, but he'll apparently try to give it a go Week 5. He was a limited participant in practice this week, so it's not as if he's going in without any work for the past week. If he suffers a setback, Alfred Blue is on hand to help out on the ground.

Miller (chest) is listed as questionable for Sunday night's game against the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

That Miller practiced all week, albeit in a limited capacity, would seem to be a positive indicator, but Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle relays that Miller has been dealing with some pain and as of Friday was noncommittal regarding his status for Sunday's 8:20 ET kickoff. We'll be on the lookout for added clues with regard to the running back's Week 5 status as the early slate of games approaches this weekend, but if Miller -- who we'll consider a game-time decision -- is limited or out, Alfred Blue would be first in line for the Texans' backfield touches.

Miller (chest) is practicing Friday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

That's not a bad sign, but the running back is trending toward being a game-time decision for Sunday night's 8:20 ET kickoff. We'll circle back on the running back's status to see how the Texans list Miller's participation level Friday, as well as to note his official Week 5 injury designation. Next up for the Texans' carries if Miller is limited or out this weekend is Alfred Blue.

Head coach Bill O'Brien said Miller (chest) will be a game-time decision for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Deepi Sidhu of the Texans' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Texans will reveal Miller's official Week 5 status at some point Friday, but it looks like a final call on his availability will not come until game day. That will make things tricky for those hoping to include Miller in this week's lineups, as the Texans and Cowboys will play the late game Sunday night.
