When it rains, it pours and there appears to be a monsoon in Miami.
As if the off-field drama hasn’t been enough, now the Miami Dolphins are dealing with on-field problems – namely injuries.
Miami Dolphins tailback Daniel Thomas tore a ligament in his left ankle during Sunday’s 20-16 loss to the Carolina Panthers, and is likely done for the season.
Thomas was seemingly splitting carries with Lamar Miller, who will now likely take over full-time duties with Thomas on the shelf.
While not the explosive runner Miller is, Thomas is the better blocking back between the two and had been tasked with goal line duties so the loss is far from minimal.
It’s possible the injury could clear some playing time for Marcus Thigpen as well, who has spent time returning kicks for Miami.
