Miami Dolphins running back Lamar Miller is day-to-day after separating his shoulder during Sunday's 37-0 win over the San Diego Chargers, Armando Salguero of The Miami Herald reports.

Miller, 23, was injured on a one-yard run during the third quarter and did not return to the game. He finished the game with 11 carries for 49 yards and a touchdown. He has started all eight games this season and leads the team with 106 carries for 518 yards and five touchdowns.

After the game, he said he was not worried about the injury, via the Herald's Adam H. Beasley.

“I’m good,” Miller said. “Just get some treatment, but I should be good.”

A fourth-round pick in the 2012 draft out of the University of Miami, Miller is in his second season as the Dolphins' starting running back.

The Dolphins are fourth in the NFL in rushing yards per game at 137.3. Ryan Tannehill's 245 rushing yards are the fourth-most among quarterbacks this season.

Miami's depth at running back took a hit earlier this season when Knowshon Moreno was ruled out for the season with a torn ACL. Daniel Thomas re-signed with the team and has 27 carries for 101 yards.

The Dolphins are 5-3 and in third place in the AFC East. They play at the Detroit Lions on Sunday at 1 p.m.
