Lamar Miller (ribs) returned to the game late in the first quarter.

Miller went to the locker room to get his ribs examined and perhaps a little more padding after the first series. He has been used as the clear lead back since returning.
Dec 4 - 1:31 PM

Lamar Miller (ribs) exited to the locker room early in the first quarter.

Miller is officially questionable to return. CBS Sports' Tracy Wolfson reports trainers were looking at his ribs on the sideline before he headed into the locker room. Miller was limited this week with a rib issue in addition to his ankle injury, but he was left off the final injury report. Alfred Blue should handle the majority of the work with Miller sidelined.
Dec 4 - 1:16 PM

Lamar Miller (ankle, ribs) remained "limited" on Thursday.

Miller has been dealing with lots of minor nicks and bruises, but will be fine for Sunday's game against the Packers. Still seeing tons of volume, Miller is on the RB1/2 borderline.
Dec 1 - 7:30 PM

Lamar Miller (ankle) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Miller appeared to tweak his ankle late in Sunday's loss to San Diego but his presence at practice suggests he'll be good to for Week 13. The Packers have been one of the better run defenses in the league this year but Miller should see enough work to warrant RB1 consideration on Sunday.
Nov 30 - 4:10 PM

Texans coach Bill O'Brien said Monday he expects Lamar Miller to be "fine" after Miller limped off the field with an ankle injury in Sunday's Week 12 loss to the Chargers.

Miller has battled an ankle injury since before the Texans' bye week. He appeared to potentially aggravate it late in Sunday's game, but it sounds like he'll be ready to go for Week 13 against the Packers. Nevertheless, early-career concerns about Miller's ability to handle heavy workloads have continued into his first season as a true bellcow back. Although Miller has not missed any games, he has frequently battled nicks and bruises and he isn't hitting many big plays. Miller's decision to add weight in the offseason was not the answer.

Lamar Miller limped off the field with an apparent ankle injury late in the Week 12 loss to the Chargers.

Miller has been dealing with a left ankle injury for several weeks, and he appeared to get it twisted on a short catch very late in the game. The Texans did not make an announcement, but he did not return. Miller was bottled up for most of the game, gaining just 57 yards on 19 carries and 18 yards on three catches. He did get loose for a couple long gains off the left side in the third quarter, but he lost a fumble at the end of one. He also was stopped at the one-inch line in the first half only to see Brock Osweiler vulture him on a sneak the very next play. If healthy, Miller should be able to have more success against the Packers, but he will be a name to watch all week.
Nov 27 - 4:50 PM

Lamar Miller (ankle, ribs) remained limited in Thursday's practice.

The Texans are just managing Miller's reps. He'll be in the RB1 mix against the Texans.
Nov 24 - 4:30 PM

Lamar Miller (ankle, ribs) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

The Texans are managing his reps coming off their Monday night game in Mexico. Miller played well in that game, turning 24 carries into 104 yards and one touchdown. Consider him a borderline RB1 against the Chargers on Sunday.
Nov 23 - 5:57 PM

Lamar Miller rushed 24 times for 104 yards and one touchdown in the Texans' 27-20, Week 11 loss to the Raiders on Monday night.

After being a timeshare player the previous three weeks as he battled through shoulder and ankle injuries, Miller came out and handled 75 percent of the offensive snaps and out-touched No. 2 back Akeem Hunt 26-5, adding two catches for nine yards. Miller's longest run of 33 yards looked to be a 34-yard touchdown at first glance but it was ruled he stepped out at the half-yard line. Braxton Miller caught a touchdown three plays later. Lamar was able to get his touchdown back later by scoring a one-yard bunny after Braxton drew a defensive pass interference penalty in the end zone. Provided Miller escaped the game with no injuries, we should expect 20-plus touches again in a Week 12 home date with the Chargers.
Nov 21 - 11:58 PM

Lamar Miller (ankle) has been removed from the injury report.

Miller was limited in practice, but the Texans were managing his reps. He declared himself ready earlier this week. C.J. Fiedorowicz (neck) was also taken off the injury report.
Nov 19 - 6:12 PM

Lamar Miller (ankle) declared himself ready for Week 11.

Miller has been limited in practice this week after missing a handful of snaps in last week's win over Jacksonville. We never really doubted his availability for Monday night's game against the Raiders in Mexico City.
Nov 18 - 2:28 PM

Lamar Miller (ankle) was limited in Thursday's practice.

The Texans are managing Miller's reps ahead of Monday's game in Mexico City. Miller will be a back-end RB1 against the Raiders.
Nov 17 - 6:21 PM

Lamar Miller played 24-of-63 (38%) snaps Week 10 against the Jaguars.

Alfred Blue was on the field for 20 while Akeem Hunt showed explosiveness on his 19 snaps. Miller did briefly leave the game with an injury in the second quarter, but he returned after halftime. After dominating the snaps early in the season, Miller has now played less than 50% in three consecutive games. Perhaps that changes as he nears full health, but he is shaping up as a high-end RB2 instead of a solid RB1.
Nov 14 - 7:43 AM

Lamar Miller rushed 15 times for 83 yards in the Texans' Week 10 win over the Jaguars.

He was not targeted in the passing game. Miller's highlight was a 45-yard run down to the one-yard line where he got caught from behind. Miller put on some weight in the offseason in an effort to hold up as a feature back, but it appears to have cost him some quickness and long speed. He also got dinged up in the second quarter of Sunday's win, but returned. He still wound up losing nine touches to Akeem Hunt and seven touches to Alfred Blue. Becoming more of a lead back in an RBBC than a true bellcow, Miller is shaping up as more of a high-end RB2 than RB1. He gets a favorable matchup against the Raiders next.
