The Dolphins are optimistic RB Lamar Miller, who leads the team with 567 rushing yards on 142 carries, will be cleared to play in time for Sunday's home game against the New England Patriots.
The story pointed out that the season-high 105 rushing yards Daniel Thomas contributed as Miller's replacement on Sunday helps alleviate some concern about Miller. For Miller owners, Thomas just won't seem to go away to open up the job fully to Miller. Even if Miller plays this week, expect Thomas to cut into his workload. Tuesday reports say Miller concussion isn't too serious.
