Dolphins running back Lamar Miller practices again Thursday
Miller left last week’s win over the San Diego Chargers with a sprained AC joint in his shoulder.
Miller had 49 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries against San Diego before he left with the injury. He leads the Dolphins with 518 rushing yards and five touchdowns and also has 21 receptions for 144 yards and a score.
The 23-year-old took over the starting job when Knowshon Moreno went down with an elbow injury early in the season and later tore his ACL.
Last season, Miller rushed for 709 yards and two touchdowns, starting 15 games. He was a fourth-round pick out of Miami by the Dolphins in 2012.
The Dolphins (5-3) play the Lions (6-2) in Detroit on Sunday.
