The MRI results are back for Lamar Miller. They reveal he has an AC joint sprain. He is day to day.
An AC joint sprain is also more commonly known as a shoulder separation. An AC joint sprain is a relatively common sporting injury affecting the shoulder and is characterized by tearing of the connective tissue and ligaments of the Acromio-Clavicular joint.
The AC joint is responsible for connecting the shoulder blade with the clavicle and allows for some shoulder movement. During certain activities, stretching forces are placed on the AC joint. When these forces are excessive and beyond what the AC joint can withstand, tearing of the ligaments and connective tissue of the AC joint may occur. This condition is known as an AC joint sprain.
The author feels it's unlikely Miller practices Tuesday. Miller said he believes he's going to be fine. Either way, it's a tough matchup against the Lions this week, so even if Miller doesn't play, neither of Daniel Thomas nor Damien Williams seem like a good fantasy play this week.
