Miami Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas (hamstring) will make his preseason debut in the final game Thursday, Aug. 28.
Huddle Up: It might be a case of too little, too late for the underwhelming 2011 second-round pick with newcomers Knowshon Moreno and Damien Williams showing well this preseason in back of 2013 starter Lamar Miller.

Miami Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas could struggle to make the team this fall. He has been solid but unspectacular in camp, while RB Mike Gillislee has been more active. Thomas also is without the regime that drafted him.
Huddle Up: The 2011 second-round pick has averaged only 437 rushing yards per season and 3.6 yards per carry in 3 seasons, and the free-agent signing of Knowshon Moreno and the emergence of Gillislee very well could seal Thomas' fate in South Beach.

Miami Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas (ankle) worked off to the side during practice Tuesday, Dec. 17.
Huddle Up: Thomas, who followed up his 109-yard, 1-TD Week 14 effort with only 18 total yards and a receiving TD Sunday, is still not over the ankle issue and will be extremely tough to depend on, especially now that the fantasy stakes are higher.

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (concussion) suffered a concussion in the Week 14 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. RB Daniel Thomas came on and posted 105 rushing yards and a touchdown on 16 carries.
Huddle Up: It seemed like Thomas might be out for a while, but he came back and had an excellent game after Miller exited with a concussion. He might well be worth an add if Miller is going to miss any time.

Miami Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas (ankle) is not expected to play in the team's Week 14 game. He is listed as questionable for the game.
Huddle Up: Lamar Miller got 22 carries last week with Thomas out, so expect him to be the feature back again on Sunday. Miller has a tough matchup against the Steelers but he's a strong flex play for fantasy playoffs with Thomas no longer in the mix for carries.

Miami Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas (ankle) was at practice and riding a bike on the side while the team worked out Tuesday, Dec. 3.

Miami Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas (ankle) did not practice Friday, Nov. 29, and has been ruled out for the team's Week 13 game.
Huddle Up: As expected, Thomas won't play Sunday against the Jets, paving the way for more touches for the severely struggling Lamar Miller.

Miami Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas (ankle) may not miss the rest of the season due to a high-ankle sprain. There were several reports indicating he would miss the remainder of the season, but he hopes to return in a few weeks.
Huddle Up: In the meantime, Thomas' absence should benefit the fantasy fortunes of fellow RB Lamar Miller, but Miller simply has been unstartable with a total of 27 rushing yards on 21 carries -- no, there's not a missing numeral -- over his last 3 games.

Miami Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas (ankle) was on crutches and in a walking boot after the Week 12 game.
Huddle Up: If Thomas can't go in Week 13 the bulk of the Dolphins' backfield work would go to Lamar Miller. You might also see Charles Clay get a couple short-yardage carries from the fullback position.

Miami Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas (ankle) is questionable to return to Week 12's game against the Carolina Panthers after suffering a left ankle injury.
Huddle Up: It was a terrible matchup for the Dolphins run game, but this could be good news for Lamar Miller going forward.
