New information on Lamar Miller status

It is apparently not as it bad as it looks for Miami Dolphins running back Lamar Miller.

If you are into connecting dots to build a picture, then the picture of the current situation would look terible for Miller.

He is coming off a game where he clearly wasn't himself against Detroit after suffering a separated shoulder against San Diego the previous week. He carried only four times, which was the fewest time this year and less than either Daniel Thomas or Damien Williams.

And today the Dolphins informed practice squad running back LaMichael James that he was being promoted to the 53-man roster, suggesting the Dolphins are concerned about Miller.

But a source tells me Miller "is fine." He did not reinjure his shoulder against the Lions. He can practice this week (perhaps on a limited basis, if that's what trainers decide) and he can play against the Buffalo Bills on Thursday, barring another setback to the shoulder.

[Update: Miller did indeed practice Monday but on a limited basis.]

So after getting some bad injury news the past 24 hours, this is good news for the Dolphins.
