Texans HC Bill O'Brien says he wants to avoid the big early rushing workloads that RB Lamar Miller endured in his 1st season with the team. "I think he probably carried it a little bit too much early on," O'Brien told the Houston Chronicle. "We were very, very dependent on him because he's that type of player. We feel like we have a pretty diverse group of running backs so I think in order to get him at his best in January, we probably need to cut down on that early in the year." Miller carried 19+ times in each of the 1st 4 games and 5 of the 1st 6 -- but he also reached 21 carries in each of his final 2 games and then 31 in the Wild Card round win over Oakland. We agree with O'Brien that lightening the rushing load at least a bit should help Miller's efficiency. We'll see whether 2016 rookie Tyler Ervin or any yet-to-arrive RB is ready to play a more significant role in 2017.

Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle) put in a full week of practice and isn't listed on the final injury report. He's set to play against the Raiders on Saturday and could be as healthy as he's been in a while. Miller carried 24 times for 104 yards and a score vs. Oakland back in Week 11. Expect a similar workload this weekend -- as long as that ankle allows it. Miller has as much upside as any RB not named Le'Veon Bell.

Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle) is expected to be ready for the 1st round of the playoffs, HC Bill O'Brien said. Houston was able to give him the past 2 games off, so he should be healthier than he's been in a while. With the QB situation in flux, Miller will be the Texans' best chance of moving the ball this postseason.

Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle) is out for Sunday’s game against the Titans. Houston has nothing to play for in the season finale and will hope to get Miller healthy for the playoff opener. Alfred Blue will serve as the lead back this weekend and is a fine bet for 20+ touches.

Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle) is inactive for tonight's game against the Bengals. That leaves Alfred Blue as Houston's top RB in an upside matchup with a Cincinnati defense that plays the pass tougher than the run.

Injury Predictor

Miller missed just 3 games in his 4 seasons as a Dolphin. In his first season as a Texan in 2016, an ankle injury sidelined him for the final 2 games. HC Bill O’Brien admitted the team overused Miller the first 4 games of the year, putting him on pace for a 400-touch season — and leading to a rash of nagging injuries which diminished his effectiveness. Miller said this spring he’s “100%” healthy.
