by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com (9/15/14) Following injuries to Knowshon Moreno (elbow) and Lamar Miller (ankle) in Week 2, the Dolphins have agreed to a contract with running back Daniel Thomas for the rest of the season, the Miami Herald reports Monday.
Thomas was among the final players cut from the Dolphins' training camp roster, after spending three mostly ineffective seasons in Miami. He has rushed for 1,312 yards on 365 carries over 40 games for the Dolphins.

Daniel Thomas gets pink slip from Dolphins
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com (8/30/14) Accomplished running back Daniel Thomas has been let go by the Dolphins, per the Miami Sun-Sentinel. He did not play in the first three preseason games.
Thomas has lost playing time after a strong rookie season. He did, however, manage a career-high 3.7 YPC in 109 carries last year.
Daniel Thomas on roster bubble
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com (8/26/14) Dolphins running back Daniel Thomas has not played in the first three preseason games and knows he's in danger of getting cut, reports the Palm Beach Post. Thomas, who will play Thursday against the Rams, said he feels he has a lot to prove.
"I haven't been out there in a while," he said. "I just want to show coaches that my hamstring is good. I feel good and I'm ready to play good."
Behind Lamar Miller and Knowshon Moreno at running back, the Dolphins have impressive undrafted rookie Damien Williams. To make the team, Thomas might need Miami to keep four running backs, the paper said.
Daniel Thomas has gone from the future of the Dolphins backfield to potentially out of a job this year. Miami added Knowshon Moreno this offseason, and the Dolphins could be moving on from Thomas after three disappointing years. Thomas has never averaged more than 3.7 yards per carry, and his best season for Fantasy owners was 2013 when he had 109 carries for 406 yards and four touchdowns and 15 catches for 63 yards and two touchdowns. He finished last year with three games with double digits in Fantasy points while sharing time with Lamar Miller, but he would be third on the depth chart at best this year behind Moreno and Miller if he stays in Miami. Keep an eye on what happens with Thomas this offseason, but he's not worth drafting in the majority of leagues no matter where he plays.
