RB Daniel Thomas ruled out
DAVIE, Fla. -- Miami Dolphins running back Daniel Thomas has been ruled out of Sunday's game against Oakland because of a concussion, leaving the team with little experience behind starter Reggie Bush.
Rookie Lamar Miller, a fourth-round draft pick out of the University of Miami, likely will be active for the first time.
Thomas' absence also might mean more carries for 258-pound rookie fullback Jorvorskie Lane.
