Bills WR Robert Woods (ankle) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Woods didn’t miss much time in Week 2, so we’re cautiously expecting him to play against the Chargers in Week 3.

Miami Dolphins starting tailback Lamar Miller practiced on Tuesday despite having suffered a right ankle injury in Sunday's 29-10 loss to the Buffalo Bills.

As long as he doesn't suffer a setback, Miller will likely carry the bulk of the Dolphins' tailback workload despite the re-signing of Daniel Thomas on Monday. But coach Joe Philbin actually hinted that rookie tailback Damien Williams might have his role on offensive expanded during the four weeks Knowshon Moreno is sidelined his dislocated left elbow.

"[Damien] didn't have a lot of carries in the game Sunday, but we thought the runs that he did have, he didn't look out of place," Philbin said. "So we'll see how it shakes out during the practice week."

Agent Tony Fleming told Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald that his client Daniel Thomas has agreed on a contract with the team. It’s a return engagement for the 2011 second-round pick, who spent the last three seasons with the Dolphins and was cut on the way to 53 players last month.

Fantasy Impact:

Thomas was cut by the Dolphins leading up to the season. The team lost running back Knowshon Moreno to a dislocated elbow early in Sunday’s loss to the Bills and then watched Lamar Miller hobble off with an ankle problem later in the game, leaving them short on backs, the story said. Miller is apparently OK but was held out of the game, a loss to the Bills in Week 2. Damien Williams got five carries for 19 yards and will likely play a role in Week 3.

Knowshon Moreno out 4-8 weeks

Broncos RB Knowshon Moreno suffered a dislocated left shoulder and possible fracture that will keep him out of the lineup at least four weeks but up to eight weeks if there is a serious fracture, a source told The Herald Sunday.

Moreno, the Dolphins running back, injured himself on his first carry of the game. He gain four yards and did not play the rest of the game.

It is likely general manager Dennis Hickey will go hunting for a running back tonight or Monday morning.

Fantasy Impact:

It was a blow to the Miami running game because in Week 1 Moreno rushed for 134 yards on 24 carries in a win over the Pats. The Dolphins will have to rely on Lamar Miller now who finished with 11 carries for 46 yards against the Bills. The Dolphins also used Damien Williams on Sunday, giving him five carries. With a bye in Week 5, Miller has favorable matchups straight through Week 8: Chiefs (Week 3, 26th), Raiders (Week 4, 30th), Packers (Week 6, 27th), Bears (Week 7, 24th), Jaguars (Week 8, 23rd).

Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (shoulder, probable) took limited practice reps all week and is probable for Week 2. Moreno is good to go for a nice matchup against the Bills.

Friday, September 12, 2014, 7:30pm

Dolphins WR Mike Wallace (hamstring, probable) took limited practice reps all week and is probable for Week 2. Wallace played through the injury in Week 1. He will be fine to face the Bills.

Friday, September 12, 2014, 7:30pm

Bills WR Sammy Watkins (ribs, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 2. Watkins isn’t 100 percent, but he’s going to continue to play through the injury.

Friday, September 12, 2014, 7:30pm

Dolphins TE Charles Clay (knee, probable) took limited practice reps all week and is probable for Week 2. Clay will be fine to face the Bills. He has struggled against the Patriots in recent matchups, but should bounce back against Buffalo.

Bills Beat: Robert Woods' role could continue to expand

Friday, September 12, 2014, 1:03pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

After a quiet preseason, Robert Woods surprisingly received the start over Mike Williams in Sunday's win over the Bears and was the Bills' leading receiver. While coach Doug Marrone said the Bills might continue to rotate receivers behind Sammy Watkins, Woods and quarterback EJ Manuel were the last two players off the practice field Thursday, working closely with offensive coordinator Nate Hackett and quarterbacks coach Todd Downing while other players were in the locker room. That points toward Woods continuing to see considerable playing time.

Fantasy Impact:

One key here is that Watkins isn't 100 percent with a rib injury, so Woods may be picking up a few extra targets that would otherwise go to the talented rookie. It isn't a great matchup, but Woods is a decent desperation play.
