Dolphins want to keep Miller, Thomas snaps even

Coach Joe Philbin reiterated that he wants to keep Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas in an even timeshare in the Dolphins' backfield.
Philbin plans to keep it that way for the foreseeable future unless "one guy is breaking tackles left and right and taking the ball a long way, and the other guy is not being productive." Through two weeks, Miller has rushed for 72 yards and a touchdown on 24 carries (3.0 YPC) and caught three passes for 13 yards. Thomas has tallied 44 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries (2.75 YPC) while reeling in two passes for 15 yards. Miller remains a borderline RB2. Thomas isn't start-able. We like Miller's chances of taking over by season's end.
