by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2014) The Dolphins got several offensive contributions in their Week 13 win over the Jets. Among them, wideout Brandon Gibson caught two passes for 17 yards, while running back Daniel Thomas had a 5-yard carry and a 3-yard reception.

They'll play the Ravens in Week 14.


Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas gets five carries Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/13/2014) Dolphins running back Daniel Thomas received five carries Thursday against the Bills.

Thomas performed well in a limited role, gaining 23 yards on the day. He averaged 4.6 yards per carry. Thomas did not factor into the passing game, and did not receive a target. He'll take on the Broncos Week 12. 


Dolphins' Daniel Thomas has ball security issues in Week 10 loss


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Dolphins running back Daniel Thomas had some ball security issues during Sunday's game against the Lions in Week 10. Thomas coughed up the ball on the opening drive of the second half and was unable to recover the fumble. He finished the game with five carries for 14 yards in a 20-16 defeat. 

Dolphins RBs struggle against tough matchup, with another looming


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) With Lamar Miller dealing with a shoulder injury, the Dolphins got little out of their running game in a 20-16 loss to the Lions in Week 10.

Miller, the team's usual No. 1 back, was able to carry the ball just four times, while adding just one reception for -4 yards. With Miller limited, the Dolphins turned to Damien Williams and Daniel Thomas , and didn't really get much out of either. Thomas finished with just 14 yards on five carries with a fumble, and barely looks like a competent fill-in for Miller.

Williams was a bit more impressive, rushing for 34 yards to lead the team on seven carries, while adding three receptions for 27 yards. With just a few days off before the team's next game against the Bills in Week 11 Thursday, Williams might be the top option again if Miller can't get to 100-percent.

If Miller's injury lingers but not enough to keep him out of action, the team might go with a split yet again this Thursday. However, the Bills are allowing the third-fewest Fantasy points to opposing running backs this season, so it might be another long day for the Dolphins running backs in Week 11. 


Report: Good chance Dolphins RB Lamar Miller will play Week 10


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/4/2014) Although Dolphins running back Lamar Miller is considered day to day with an AC joint sprain, there is a good chance he will play Week 10 against the Lions, according to the Miami Herald

Offensive coordinator Bill Lazor provided no insight Monday about Miller's availability for Sunday's game, but he didn't seem overly concerned about the team being without Miller. If Miller is sidelined, Daniel Thomas or Damien Williams will start at running back.

"If Lamar needs [rest] and he comes out, very infrequently do I start calling the game differently," Lazor said. "Sometimes if it is long-term, we would have to think about it and consider what they do best because I think that’s what the smart thing is -- to do what guys do best. For the most part, we don’t have a million different runs. For the most part, they all have been working out all the runs that we do well. I think we’ll be able to trust all of them."

Miller has started every game this season for the Dolphins. He is the team's leading rusher with 518 yards. He is averaging 4.9 yards per carry and has six touchdowns (five rushing) through eight games.


Dolphins backup RBs Williams, Thomas combine for 20 carries


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Dolphins running backs Damien Williams and Daniel Thomas combined for 20 carries in a comfortable win over the Chargers in Week 9.

With the game well in hand and Lamar Miller (shoulder) injured in the second half, the Dolphins focused more on the ground game. Williams led the way with 28 yards on 11 carries and two catches for 23 yards. Thomas took eight handoffs for 9 yards and caught all two of his targets for 14 yards in a 37-0 victory.

If Miller is unable to play next week, the team will likely use Williams and Thomas for the majority of the carries against Detroit.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
