Dolphins running back Lamar Miller was cleared to practice on Wednesday, three days after suffering a concussion, and following a full week of practice with no setbacks, Miller seems ready to play this weekend versus the Patriots. He is officially listed as probable.
As much as I have howled about Miller needing more carries -- and he finally has gotten them recently -- I have to say that this is kind of a shame. I mean, it's great for the Dolphins to have both Miller and Daniel Thomas active versus the Patriots' weak run defense, but we are looking at another week with a timeshare here, making it difficult to trust either player despite the great matchup. If I had to choose one, I would go with Miller, but he is only a flex option since Thomas will probably see double-digit touches as well.
