News: Miller and Knowshon Moreno have split first-team running back snaps over the past two days, according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald. Impact: The report adds that while coach Joe Philbin indicated that the team's top running back job has yet to be settled, it notes that Philbin has said some good things about Miller this week. "I like everything Lamar has done since he's gotten here," Philbin said. "He's had an excellent offseason and camp...I like everything he's done since April 21." In reference to Moreno, Philbin noted that, "Knowshon ran the ball well [Saturday]." Until or unless a starter is declared by the team, we'll operate under the assumption that some form of time-share will likely be in effect to start the season, though Miller's sustained solid effort could result in the balance tilting in his favor out of the gate. In any case, Moreno's superior pass protection ability figures to ensure him a third-down role, at the very least, until a more predictable distribution of carries emerges.(RotoWire, )

News: Miller had 34 yards on seven carries and three yards on two receptions in Saturday's preseason game against the Cowboys. Impact: Splitting the first-team workload, Miller and Knowshon Moreno (knee) both had success against the weak Dallas defense. Miller got the start and handled a decent portion of the third-down work, but Moreno is the better bet to pile up receptions this season, and the former Bronco could push for the starting gig. Whatever ground he may have lost due to injury, Moreno seems to be close to making it up. Come Week 1, both backs figure to be involved in the offense.(RotoWire, )

News: Miller recorded three carries for three yards and caught two passes for 20 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Bucs. Impact: With Knowshon Moreno, Daniel Thomas, and Mike Gillislee all sitting out Saturday's game, reserve back Damien Williams recorded a team-high 11 carries in the contest. While Miller remains atop the Dolphins' posted RB depth chart, now that Moreno is back at practice and seems likely to suit up for the team's next preseason contest, Moreno is a position to push Miller for a key role in the Miami rushing attack this coming season.(RotoWire, )
