by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Dolphins running back Lamar Miller, who left the Week 2 loss at Buffalo with an ankle injury, is practicing Tuesday, reports the Miami Herald. It's a good sign for his availability Sunday against the Chiefs.

Lamar Miller leaves with ankle injury late
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Dolphins running back Lamar Miller was the second back to leave Sunday's game against the Bills in Week 2 with an injury, as he joined Knowshon Moreno on the sidelines following a fourth-quarter ankle injury.

Miller suffered a sprained right ankle in the fourth quarter, and was unable to return to the game. He finished the game with 11 carries for 46 yards after Moreno exited with an elbow injury. He also hauled in two passes for 7 yards on five targets.

Damien Williams stepped into the lineup as the injuries mounted. According to the Miami Herald, Miller was well enough to go back into the game in the next series, but did not see the field again as the Dolphins fell, 29-10.

At this point, it seems likely he will be available for Week 3 against the Chiefs.

Dolphins OC not making decision on starting RB yet
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Despite Knowshon Moreno's terrific debut against the Patriots in Week 1's 33-20 win over the Patriots, Dolphins offensive coordinator Bill Lazor told reporters Monday he has not thought about whether Moreno will be moved into the starting lineup for Week 2 against the Bills.

Lamar Miller got the start for the Dolphins and was solid, rushing for 59 yards on 11 carries. However, Moreno was the star of the victory, totaling 134 yards on 24 carries. Regardless of which player starts the first series for the Dolphins, Moreno looks to be the lead back at this point.

Lamar Miller finds the end zone in opener
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Dolphins running back Lamar Miller took a backseat in the game plan in Week 1 against the Patriots Sunday, but still found ways to be productive in a 33-20 win.

Miller opened the game as the starter ahead of Knowshon Moreno, but ended up with just 11 carries to Moreno's 24. He still managed to rush for 59 yards in his limited role, while also hauling in four receptions for 19 yards and a touchdown.

Miller was briefly benched following his lost fumble in the first half, but managed to work his way back onto the field. The Dolphins' next game is set for Week 2 against the Bills Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis | 1409770383
Dolphins backfield timeshare unlikely to make either worth starting
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Dolphins brought Knowshon Moreno in this offseason to compete with Lamar Miller for playing time, but it appears as if Miller will open the season as the starter. However, with a potential timeshare looking likely, will either be of much use in Week 1 against the Patriots?

The Patriots were 14th in the league in Fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs last season, but the Dolphins actually found a surprising amount of success against them. Miller in particular was a solid contributor, as he rushed for 150 yards total and accounted for 16 Fantasy points. However, that was when he was sharing the workload with Daniel Thomas, a much less useful overall option than Moreno, who should cut into his playing time even more.

In fact, The Miami Herald reported Monday Moreno is likely to see more playing time than Miller, who will likely be used in more limited packages until he proves he is otherwise ready for a larger role.

Even if Moreno does end up playing a larger role, neither player is likely to be used as anything like a workhorse for Sunday's game, making each a risky Fantasy option. Neither ranks among the top-30 in our running back rankings for this week, though Moreno has slightly more value at this point as a Flex option.
