Miami Dolphins rookie running back Lamar Miller could make his NFL debut on Sunday against the Oakland Raiders with backup Daniel Thomas being out with an injury suffered against the Houston Texans in the season opener last Sunday.
The Dolphins are looking for more productivity from their No. 2 running back. Thomas averaged just 3.5 yards per carry last season as a rookie, and didn't score in 165 attempts.
"It's a great feeling," Miller said. "I've been playing there for three years. It's just a blessing. A lot of people don't get this opportunity. I'm just trying to take full advantage."
