Daniel Thomas continues to practice at full speed for the Miami Dolphins after sitting out Week 6 against the St. Louis Rams due to a concussion, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports. Thomas was not limited at all last week during bye week practices.
Thomas is expected to play Sunday against the New York Jets. He will wear an oversized helmet to protect him from further head trauma.
Fantasy Impact: While Thomas will be available and should see touches, Reggie Bush is still the Dolphins' featured back. Bush is seemingly fully healthy, and could have a big day going up against a Jets defense that is allowing 147.7 yards per game rushing.
Thomas and rookie Lamar Miller will duke it out for Bush's scraps. The fact that both backups could split carries does not bode well for their fantasy value.
