Dolphins RB Thomas active against Jets

Miami Dolphins running back Daniel Thomas is active for their

game Sunday against the New York Jets despite a nagging left ankle

injury.

Thomas had been listed as questionable and was limited in

practice Friday.

Nate Garner will replace Sam Brenner as the starter at left

guard for Miami.

Among those active for the Jets are receivers Santonio Holmes

(foot, hamstring) and Jeremy Kerley (elbow), cornerback Antonio

Cromartie (hip), linebackers Quinton Coples (shoulder) and Demario

Davis (thumb), tackle Austin Howard (knee), safeties Ed Reed (not

injury related) and Dawan Landry (hand), center Nick Mangold (toe),

and defensive linemen Sheldon Richardson (finger, shoulder) and

Muhammad Wilkerson (wrist). All had been listed as probable.
