Daniel Thomas MIA -RBhad knee surgery
Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas underwent surgery after injuring his knee in mid-December. It sounds like it was a minor procedure, and Thomas is expected to be ready for OTAs. The injury cost him the final 2 games of a disappointing season. Thomas' 3.6 yards-per-carry average was 5th-worst among RBs with at least 100 totes. He also caught just 15 balls and fumbled 3 times. The top spot on Miami's depth chart will likely be open this offseason with Reggie Bush set to hit free-agency. But Thomas has done little to inspire confidence from the Dolphins or fantasy owners. We'll be much more interested in the shifty and explosive Lamar Miller in fantasy drafts this summer.
Daniel Thomas MIA -RBplaced on IR
The Dolphins have placed RB Daniel Thomas (knee) on IR. The injury isn't believed to be serious, but it was enough to knock Thomas out for the season's final 2 games. He finishes his 2nd NFL season with an ugly 3.6 yards-per-carry average. That follows a 3.5 mark in his rookie campaign. While RB Reggie Bush will be a free-agent this offseason, Thomas has done nothing to prove capable of handling the starting job. We think rookie Lamar Miller could be Miami's lead back in 2013. We'll get to see a little more of him over the next 2 weeks.
Daniel Thomas MIA -RBhas knee injury
Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas suffered a knee injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Jaguars. He didn't play in the 2nd. RB Reggie Bush ended up carrying 21 times -- his most since Week 2. Rookie Lamar Miller stepped in as the change-of-pace, but finished with just 6 totes. If Thomas can't play against the Bills this weekend, Bush will be in for another hefty workload. He'll be a solid fantasy option vs. the league's 29th-ranked RB defense.
Daniel Thomas MIA -RBprobable for Week 8
Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas (concussion) put in a full week of practice and is probable for Sunday's game against the Jets. He'll step back in as Miami's #2 RB. Thomas won't see more than a handful of touches, but he could vulture goal line looks from RB Reggie Bush.
Daniel Thomas MIA -RBgets medical clearance
Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas (concussion) says he's been medically cleared for contact. If he can avoid a setback in practice, he'll step back in as Miami's #2 RB after the Week 7 bye. Thomas is averaging just 3.1 yards per carry this season but has scored in 2 of his last 3 games. While he's not a reliable fantasy play, he could continue to be a drain on RB Reggie Bush's upside.
Daniel Thomas MIA -RBruled out for Week 6
Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Rams. He's sustained 2 concussions already this season and should be considered week-to-week. In the meantime, rookie Lamar Miller will serve as Miami's #2 RB but is unlikely to see more than a handful of touches behind Reggie Bush.
Daniel Thomas MIA -RBout Wednesday
Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas (head) did not practice on Wednesday. It's believed that he suffered his 2nd concussion in the last 5 weeks this past Sunday. Don't expect Thomas to be available for this weekend's game against the Rams. It's good news for RB Reggie Bush, since Thomas has been stealing goal line looks.
Daniel Thomas MIA -RBleaves with head injury
Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas left in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game with a head injury. Remember that he sustained a concussion back in Week 1. We'll update his status when we learn more.
Daniel Thomas MIA -RBback at practice Wednesday
Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas (concussion) returned to practice on Wednesday. He reportedly passed his baseline tests last week but was held out as a precaution. He should be ready for Sunday's game against the Jets, although it'll be interesting to see how the pecking order shakes out behind RB Reggie Bush after rookie RB Lamar Miller played so well last week. Neither Miller nor Thomas is a fantasy option.
Daniel Thomas MIA -RBruled out for Week 2
Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas (concussion) has been ruled out for this weekend's game against the Raiders. RB Reggie Bush is a good bet for 20+ touches. Rookie Lamar Miller is expected to serve as the #2 RB but isn't a fantasy option.
Daniel Thomas MIA -RBnot expected to play Week 2
Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas is not expected to play against the Raiders this Sunday. He experienced concussion-like symptoms last weekend. He's reportedly passed his baseline tests, but Miami is leaning towards holding him out for precautionary reasons. It'll mean a full workload for Reggie Bush, who is a solid RB2 option across formats. Rookie RB Lamar Miller is expected to serve as the backup but won't see more than a handful of touches.
Daniel Thomas MIA -RBsustains head injury
Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas took a big hit near the end of the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Texans. He fumbled on the play and stayed on the turf for a couple minutes. He appeared to be woozy as he was helped off the field by a couple trainers. It looks like a possible concussion.
Daniel Thomas MIA -RBin the doghouse
Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas isn't off to a good start with the new coaching staff. He was reportedly fined for being late to the team plane and a weightlifting session over the past month. Thomas hasn't been producing on the field either. He's averaging just 3.1 yards per carry this preseason. That follows a 2011 rookie campaign that saw him sputter to just 3.5 yards per. Thomas remains behind Reggie Bush in the pecking order. That won't change if he doesn't start producing. Thomas is just a bench stash in fantasy.
Daniel Thomas MIA -RBnot guaranteed #2 job
It sounds like Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas will have to battle just for the backup job this season. The new coaching staff has no allegiance to the 2011 2nd-round pick, who struggled to just 3.5 yards per carry last year. Reggie Bush appears to be locked-in as Miami's lead back, while the coaches are reportedly high on Steve Slaton. They also brought in rookie Lamar Miller, who might be the most explosive of the group. Of course, the competition could be a good thing for Thomas. We still think he has the size and skill-set to emerge as the Dolphins' between-the-tackles runner. He'll be worth monitoring in training camp and preseason action.
