Jorvorskie Lane's Role With Dolphins Is Increasing

After playing just four snaps in the Dolphins' season-opening loss to Houston, Miami fullback Jorvorskie Lane played 48 of the Dolphins' 75 snaps Sunday and was the only player to see time at the position. The Phinsider has a full breakdown of the snap counts for each Miami offensive player.

The move paid off for Miami, as Reggie Bush rushed for 172 yards and two touchdowns on 26 carries and caught three passes for 25 yards. Rookie Lamar Miller totaled 65 yards on 10 carries and also scored a touchdown.

Lane proved his worth both as a lead blocker and as a runner in Miami's 35-13 win over Oakland Sunday, The Phinsider says. The former Texas A&M back rushed for 12 yards on 4 carries Sunday. The Dolphins face off against a tough New York Jets run defense this Sunday.
