Miller carried just seven times for 44 yards and caught two of three targets for 11 additional yards in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys. Despite a strong start to a game that remained close throughout, Miller tied his season-low in carries. Backup Jay Ajayi stole away just six touches, but the Dolphins were nearly doubled up in terms of time of possession, limiting the sheer volume of their offense. Miller will remain a focal point of the Miami attack, but the Week 12 trip to take on the Jets doesn't provide him with the best of bounce back opportunities.
Miller rushed 16 times for 43 yards and caught six of eight targets for 50 receiving yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Eagles. He has now scored at least one touchdown in five consecutive games. While Miller has failed to accumulate much yardage on the ground, finishing with fewer than 45 receiving yards in three straight games, he has been very solid in the passing game, catching 18 passes on 20 targets for 166 yards in the last three. He's found the end zone seven times in the last four games and is clearly the most reliable fantasy option in Miami. Up next is a Week 11 matchup against a Cowboys defense that came into Sunday having allowed 10 rushing touchdowns this season, the third most in the NFL.
Miller -- who was not spotted at practice Monday - does not appear on the Dolphins' Week 9 injury report, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports. Miller -- who has scored a TD in each of his last three games -- is thus on track to take aim Sunday at a Buffalo team coming off a bye, that has allowed an average of 91.9 rushing yards per game to date. While his average of 5.5 yards per carry looks nice, Miller has been limited to 79 carries in seven games. Apart from his 19-carry workload in Week 6, Miller has recorded 14 or less carries or less in his other six outings.
Miller (undisclosed) practiced Wednesday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports. Miller didn't practice Monday, but his participation Wednesday suggests that the running back is in no danger of missing Sunday's game against the Bills.
Miller is not practicing Monday, the Miami Herald reports. Miller was not reported to have suffered any injury following Thursday night's loss to the Patriots, so it's unclear why he's not practicing Monday. As a result, Wednesday's injury report should help provide some clarity whether Miller is ailing or simply receiving a day off Monday.
