Lamar Miller injury update: Dolphins RB questionable; should play for fantasy owners

Miller is questionable for Sunday's game against the Broncos. We break down the fantasy implications.

Miami Dolphins running back Lamar Miller is listed as questionable for Week 12 with a shoulder injury. Miller was not absent from practice this week, though he was a limited participant. The questionable designation is supposed to denote a 50-percent chance of playing but at this point, it would be a big surprise if Miller were to miss the game.

Miller carried the ball 15 times for 86 yards against the Buffalo Bills in Week 11. He was dealing with the injury the previous week as well, when he carried the ball four times for just 10 yards. It's unclear why the Dolphins have elected to list him as questionable at this point. For what it's worth, Miller expects to play on Sunday, according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.

Fantasy Impact: Miller should play in this game. Fantasy owners shouldn't be too worried and they should plan on starting him against the Denver Broncos, though they do have one of the league's best run defenses. Unfortunately, it's a late game so if there's anything early Sunday morning to indicate that Miller might play, fantasy owners will need to react quickly.
