The Palm Beach Post - [Full Article]

Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas, the rookie second-round pick, hasn’t had a great camp so far. Tony Sparano and running backs coach Jeff Nixon both scolded him in the last week for not going full-speed in practice and tip-toeing in the backfield. And he has struggled in two preseason games – Thomas had just five rushing yards on four attempts in the first preseason game, and failed to get into the end zone on three straight runs from the 1-yard line against Carolina.

Thomas picked up his performance against the Panthers, finishing with 52 rushing yards and a touchdown. But after struggling in practice this week, Thomas needs to string several strong runs together against the Bucs to get back in the good graces of the coaching staff.
