Here are the most recent Miami Dolphins stories Thursday from around the Web:
  • Manny Navarro of the Miami Herald writes that the Dolphins running game is at a standstill.
Morning take: Miami is ranked 28th in rushing and hasn’t shown much in five weeks. The blame mostly goes on the offensive line, which is failing to create holes. Running backs Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas also need to do a better job of eluding tacklers.
  • Speaking of running backs, Dolphins receiver Brian Hartline told the NFL Network that the team is waiting for one tailback to emerge.
Morning take: There haven’t been a lot of opportunities for running backs, particularly in the past two losses. It is time to provide more carries for Miller to truly see what he can do.
Morning take: Quarterback Ryan Tannehill gets one of the highest grades (B+) from Hyde in his second season. It’s astounding Tannehill has held up and played this well with little pass protection or a running game.
  • Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post writes defensive tackle Paul Soliai is making an impact.
Morning take: Soliai is a pending free agent, and the Dolphins have a decision to make between him and fellow defensive tackle Randy Starks. I would re-sign Soliai because of his ability to stuff the run.
