Miller was active as an emergency option only last night and didn't end up playing. He might return to a committee backfield with Alfred Blue -- and will also need to contend with D'Onta Foreman's eventual return.

Injury Predictor

Houston trimmed Miller's workload in his 2nd Texans season, dropping the lead back from 19.1 carries per game to 14.9. That might have helped his durability after Miller lost the final 2 games of 2016 to an ankle sprain and popped up as questionable in Week 8 with a shoulder issue. Miller missed just 3 total games over 4 seasons of inconsistent work in Miami, though he dealt with a series of dings there. Texans HC Bill O'Brien criticized himself for working Miller to hard in the 1st half of 2016, but whether they keep Miller's load down in 2018 might depend on how well RB D'Onta Foreman rebounds from last November's Achilles' tear.
