That contradicts Miller, who said after the game his right ankle was fine.
“This is the first that I’ve heard of, that he was OK to go in the second (half),” Campbell said. “If that’s what he told you guys…I knew that he wasn’t in there for a spell because I saw him limp off the field.
“So at that point I was just trying to manage the game.”
Miller, who ended with 12 carries for 89 yards and two touchdowns, left the game after his two-yard carry in the fourth quarter. He limped off the field and sat on the trainer’s table on the sideline where his right ankle got medical attention. Miller didn't get another carry.
Campbell has recently harped on running the ball, especially under play-caller/quarterbacks coach Zac Taylor, who replaced fired offensive coordinator Bill Lazor two games ago. But the Dolphins, who rushed for 128 yards on 22 carries, seemed to abandon the run in the fourth quarter Monday. Campbell said it was first because of Miller’s injury, and then because of the game situation.
