News: Thomas has been released by the Dolphins, the Sun Sentinel reports. Impact: With the move, Lamar Miller and Knowshon Moreno remain the Dolphins' two top options at running back, with Damien Williams apparently in line to claim the team's No. 3 slot. Thomas is now a candidate to catch on elsewhere as a depth back.(RotoWire, )

News: Thomas (hamstring) will make his preseason debut in Thursday's finale versus the Rams, the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports. Impact: Thomas has missed the entire preseason to date because of a hamstring issue. Although he was finally able to return to practice Monday, Thomas' roster spot is no longer a certainty. Knowshon Moreno and Lamar Miller are the Dolphins' clear-cut top running backs, while undrafted rookie Damien Williams and Mike Gillislee (knee) are vying for the No. 3 position. With that crowded backfield, Thomas may need a strong showing Thursday to secure a place on Miami's regular-season squad.(RotoWire, )

News: Thomas (hamstring) returned to practice Monday, according to the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero. Impact: This could be a case of too little to late, as Thomas is certainly on the roster bubble. With Knowshon Moreno returning to action over the weekend and Lamar Miller having a strong camp, even if Thomas does make the team, he won't be seeing too much playing time on game day.(RotoWire, )

News: The Dolphins hope that Thomas (hamstring) returns to action for Thursday's preseason finale against the Rams, Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post reports. Impact: While Thomas was riding the pine for a third game in a row, Knowshon Moreno rushed with authority in his Dolphins debut, posting 64 yards on 10 carries and generally providing Ryan Tannehill with excellent pass protection. Meanwhile, current No. 1 back Lamar Miller was steady -- seven rushes for 34 yards and two receptions for three yards -- while undrafted free agent Orleans Darkwa impressed to the tune of 70 yards on six runs and 24 yards on three catches. If Thomas fails to play prior to Week 1, he'd be hard-pressed to hold much fantasy utility right off the bat.(RotoWire, )

News: Thomas (hamstring) is inactive Saturday against the Cowboys. Impact: Missing his third consecutive contest, Thomas is well behind Lamar Miller and Knowshon Moreno (knee) in the running back pecking order at this point. Moreno is making his Dolphins debut Saturday, thereby placing Thomas a distant third as the regular season approaches.(RotoWire, )

News: Thomas (hamstring) is unlikely to play Saturday against the Cowboys, the Palm Beach Post reports. Impact: On the plus side, the Dolphins expect Thomas to be available for the team's preseason finale next Thursday. A solid effort in that contest would no doubt go a long way toward helping Thomas cement a spot in the Miami backfield, but either way, he's decidedly behind both Lamar Miller and Knowshon Moreno in the Dolphins' backfield pecking order.(RotoWire, )

News: Thomas (hamstring strain) was spotted at Monday's practice, Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports. Impact: Though not reflected by the team's posted unofficial depth chart, at this stage, Thomas is behind Lamar Miller and Knowshon Moreno in the Dolphins' RB pecking order. Thomas' return to the field does, however, boost his chances of retaining a roster spot, with the likes of Damien Williams and Mike Gillislee also jostling for slotting at the position.(RotoWire, )
