Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said he thought Saturday was the best practice for the running game so far. Although Daniel Thomas and Lamar Miller each demonstrated good quickness and burst Thomas thought one thing cast a dark light on his day — a fumble in team drills that defensive lineman Jared Odrick recovered.

So call Saturday a nudge forward for Miller who also ran a nice wheel route under a Ryan Tannehill lob as the Dolphins decide who will start at running back.
