News: Miller (shoulder/knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Broncos, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports. Impact: Miller, who was able to practice in a limited fashion all week, had a knee ailment added to his existing shoulder issue on Friday's injury report. At this stage, we haven't heard anything to suggest that Miller's Week 12 status is in danger, but given that he is one of just two Dolphins listed as questionable this week, his status is worth monitoring and verifying as Sunday's 4:25 ET kickoff approaches. Meanwhile, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald relays that the running back expects to play Sunday, despite his questionable designation.(RotoWire, )

News: Miller is questionable for Sunday's game at Denver because of shoulder and knee injuries. Impact: Miller has played the past two games with the shoulder injury and was limited in practice this week. Undrafted rookie Damien Williams is listed behind him on the depth chart. (STATS, 2:53pm)
Fri. Nov 21, 2014
News: Though Miller (shoulder/knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Broncos, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports that the running back is expected to play in the contest. Impact: With the Dolphins kicking off at 4:25 ET this week, it's a plus to see an optimistic nugget like this one from the Herald, though we'd still advise verifying Miller's status as Sunday's contest approaches, to be sure.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Nov 20, 2014
News: Miller (shoulder) was listed as limited at practice Thursday, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports. Impact: We'll revisit Miller's status Friday, but it's possible that his transition from a full practice on Wednesday to a limited session Thursday could be maintenance-related, as opposed to indicative of a setback with his shoulder injury.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Nov 13, 2014
News: Miller (shoulder) had 15 carries for 86 yards and two catches for 12 yards in Thursday's 22-9 win over the Bills. Impact: After recording just five touches against the Lions on Sunday, Miller handled most of the workload Thursday night, getting 17 of his team's 24 running-back touches. Damian Williams had two receptions and no carries, while Daniel Thomas had no receptions and five carries, but with three of those totes coming on the meaningless final drive. Miller re-established his health, making him far and away the top option in Miami's backfield for a difficult Week 12 game in Denver.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Nov 13, 2014
News: Miller (shoulder) is listed as active for Thursday's game against the Bills. Impact: Miller is out there if you need him this week, but how much work he will see remains to be seen and it's possible that he could continue to work in a time-share with Damien Williams and Daniel Thomas on Thursday, as he works through a shoulder issue.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Nov 12, 2014
News: Miller (shoulder) is listed as probable for Thursday's game against the Bills, the Palm Beach Post reports. Impact: Though limited in practice this week, the probable designation confirms that Miller is on track to play Thursday, but it remains to be seen how close to a full workload he'll see after recording just four carries this past Sunday, while sharing work in the Miami backfield with Damien Williams and Daniel Thomas.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Nov 11, 2014
News: Miller (shoulder) was a limited participant at Tuesday's practice. Impact: Miller said Monday that he expects to play Thursday against the Bills, but he has been limited at both of the Dolphins' first two days of practice this week. Wednesday's injury report will provide an update on Miller's status for Thursday's game, but with a short week of practice, Miller's workload could be monitored again like it was in Week 10.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Nov 10, 2014
News: Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald relays that Miller says his shoulder feels "good" and that the running back plans to play Thursday against the Bills. Impact: That said, Miller's Week 11 status is worth monitoring, given that the Dolphins added LaMichael James to their backfield mix Monday. After being limited this past Sunday, seeing just 11 snaps, it's not hard to imagine Miller -- who was limited at Monday's walk-through -- remaining in a Thursday RB timeshare in the Dolphins' short week, assuming he suits up.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Nov 10, 2014
News: Miller (shoulder), who recorded a season-low four carries in Sunday's loss to Detroit, is slated to practice this week and appears to be on track to play against the Bills on Thursday, barring any setbacks, the Miami Herald reports. Impact: Though Miller saw limited action this past Sunday as he was bouncing back from a left AC joint sprain, the report relays that the running back did not re-injure his shoulder in Week 10's contest. His status remains worth monitoring in the coming days, and although the Dolphins added LaMichael James to their backfield mix Monday, the report suggests that the move isn't indicative of a Miller setback.(RotoWire, )
Nov 9, 2014
News: Miller (shoulder) had four carries for 10 rushing yards and one catch on two targets for minus-four receiving yards Sunday against the Lions. Impact: There was talk earlier in the weekend that Miller could be limited Sunday due to his shoulder injury, and that certainly seemed to be the case, with Damien Williams rushing seven times for 34 yards and Daniel Thomas gaining 14 yards on five carries. The Lions went out to a 10-0 lead after the first quarter, and Miami ended up throwing the ball 19 more times than they threw, which limited Miller's fantasy potential against the league's top-ranked defense. Up next is a tough Week 11 matchup against a Bills defense allowing the eighth-fewest rushing yards per game this season.(RotoWire, )
Sun. Nov 9, 2014
News: Dolphins running back Lamar Miller is active Sunday. Impact: He had been dealing with a left shoulder injury.(STATS, 11:26am)
Nov 9, 2014
News: Miller (shoulder) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Lions. Impact: Miller is out there if you need him Sunday, against a rugged Detroit defense that is allowing an average of 74 rushing yards per game to date, though per Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald, Miller could be limited some by his shoulder issue on Sunday, with Daniel Thomas and Damien Williams also on hand to see work in the Dolphins' backfield in such a scenario.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Nov 8, 2014
News: Though Miller (shoulder) is expected to suit up versus the Lions on Sunday, according to the Miami Herald's Adam Beasley the running back could be limited some in such a scenario. Impact: In any case, we'll verify Miller's Week 10 status in advance of Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff, though at this stage, it seems as though he's likely to give it a go, assuming no pre-game setbacks. Next up for touches in the Miami backfield Sunday if Miller is limited at all in the contest, are Daniel Thomas and Damien Williams.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Nov 7, 2014
News: Miller (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions after practicing in a limited fashion again Friday, the Dolphins' official site reports. Impact: Miller's continued practice participation this week would seem to bode well for his chances of suiting up Sunday, though as one of five players listed as questionable by the Dolphins this week, his status is definitely worth tracking in advance of Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff. If Miller ends up sitting, or is limited at all this weekend, Daniel Thomas and Damien Williams are next up for carries in the Miami backfield, according to the Palm Beach Post.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Nov 3, 2014
News: Miller rushed 11 times for 49 yards and a score in Miami's win over San Diego. Impact: He has five touchdowns in his last five games.(STATS, 5:30pm)
