Miami Dolphins running back Daniel Thomas left Sunday's game against the Houston Texans with an apparent head injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Miami Dolphins running back Daniel Thomas left Sunday's game against the Houston Texans with an apparent head injury. He took a big hit and fumbled the football as a result. Thomas didn't look good leaving the field and was taken to the locker room. Glover Quin forced the fumble. Dolphins beat writer Omar Kelly speculated that it may have been a knee injury that forced Thomas out of the game.

Fantasy Impact: Reggie Bush is the only member of the Dolphins backfield worth owning in fantasy football leagues. Thomas' injury combined with his inability to hold on to the football does not bode well for his fantasy prospects. Regardless of the severity of the injury, Thomas should not be on fantasy rosters unless you are in a deep league.
