Sore Ankle Doesn't Keep Lamar Miller From Practicing

Miami Dolphins starting tailback Lamar Miller practiced on Tuesday despite having suffered a right ankle injury in Sunday's 29-10 loss to the Buffalo Bills.

Miller, who has gained 105 rushing yards on 22 carries this season, is ranked 23rd in rushing.

As long as he doesn't suffer a setback, Miller will likely carry the bulk of the Dolphins' tailback workload despite the re-signing of Daniel Thomas on Monday. But coach Joe Philbin actually hinted that rookie tailback Damien Williams might have his role on offensive expanded during the four weeks Knowshon Moreno is sidelined his dislocated left elbow.

"[Damien] didn't have a lot of carries in the game Sunday, but we thought the runs that he did have, he didn't look out of place," Philbin said. "So we'll see how it shakes out during the practice week."
