Dolphins running back Lamar Miller got back in the end zone, but was forced out of Sunday's game against the Chargers in Week 9 with a shoulder injury.
Miller barreled into the end zone from 2 yards out in the second quarter. He sustained the injury in the second half and was ruled questionable to return to the game. With the lead well in hand for Miami, it seems unlikely that Miller will play again on Sunday, which means Daniel Thomas and Damien Williams will likely close out the game. According to the Miami Herald, Miller was unable to lift his left arm above his head when he was being checked out by team trainers.
Miller rushed for 49 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries and caught 1 of 2 targets for 8 yards before departing. He'll look to return to action Week 10 at Detroit.
Although Dolphins running back Lamar Miller told reporters he just has a stinger and will be fine, the Miami Herald reports Miller will get an MRI on his injured left shoulder. His status for Week 10 at Detroit is uncertain.
