Miller gained just 22 yards on 14 carries during Sunday's loss to the Packers. Miller struggled to get anything going on Sunday after exiting the game early for a brief period of time due to a minor rib injury. Although he was able to return fairly quickly, Miller ended up as the Texans' third-leading rusher behind Jonathan Grimes and Alfred Blue, who each had five carries. Miller will look to avoid any setbacks in practice throughout the upcoming week before traveling to Indianapolis for a Week 14 matchup with the Colts.
Miller, who left Sunday's game against the Packers with a rib injury, was subsequently able to return to action. Good news for the Texans, as Miller was able to return to the field after being deemed questionable to do so initially. Alfred Blue and Jonathan Grimes are on hand to spell Miller if he is limited at all or suffers any setbacks as Sunday's game unfolds.
Updating a previous note, Miller (ribs) is questionable to return to Sunday's tilt with the Packers. Miller has been playing through several injuries the past few weeks, but his day may now be done after he aggravated his rib aliment on the first series of the game. It will be up to Alfred Blue and Jonathan Grimes to handle the bulk of the carries with Miller sidelined.
Miller (ribs) is headed back to the locker room, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports. Miller seemed to aggravate his lingering rib injury during the Texans' first offensive drive. Look for more updates to come, but in the meantime, Alfred Blue will handle the bulk of the carries.
Miller (ankle/ribs) was limited in practice this week, but does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Packers. Miller will thus continue to play through his aches and pains and he's in line to see the bulk of the Texans' carries in Week 13. Through 11 games, he's averaged 19.2 carries, and with 211 rushes in that span, Miller has already eclipsed his 16-game total of 194 that he logged with Miami last season.
