Daniel Thomas should be ready to roll Monday night

Miami Dolphins running back Daniel Thomas is congratulated by teammates after he scored a second quarter touchdown against the Carolina Panthers during their preseason NFL football game in Miami Reuters

The Dolphins should enter their Monday night game against the Jets with a healthy backfield.

Daniel Thomas told the Miami Herald Saturday that he will suit up against New York, barring a setback to his nagging hamstring injury.

The Jets have been vulnerable to the run this year, so we wouldn’t be surprised to see a healthy dose of Thomas on Monday night in Matt Moore’s first start for Miami.

Reggie Bush has been a big disappointment, but Thomas has more or less looked as advertised with 4.9 yards-per-carry on the season.

    Great news! Perhaps Sparano was too harsh on Thomas in the preseason. He’s looked like a stud so far. Let’s get Bush on the perimeter, pound Thomas inside, and look for shots to Marshall deep throughout the game. Fins up!

    If the Law firm can run wild on the jets I think Thomas should have a big day

    Sparano, and this Im sure will come as a surprise to many of you, is not using Reggie Bush as he should. Bush as a pro, has been used to good success, as a WR or slot receiver out of backfield. What? yes thats correct. Reggie cant run between the tackles, never has, never will. Sparano just cant see the forest for the trees.
    well, he’s no head coach for one thing. Kinda explains a lot,,,dont it? If the Dulphins run against the Jets, Ill eat my hat, as my ole grand dad us to say. The only thing worse the the Jets run defense is the dulphin run offense, their OL is terrible, just ask profootballfocus. They have all the ugly stats.

    Yeah, the pass threat definitley inflated BJGE’s stats, but to not stop him in the end of the 4th when everyone knew they were going to run it is inexcusable.
