Dolphins running back Daniel Thomas suffered a concussion in the second quarter of the regular season opener. He sat out the following game before returning in Week Three.
Thomas suffered another concussion in Miami’s Week Five win over Cincinnati, exiting in the fourth quarter. Although he was initially listed with a “head” injury, the Dolphins confirmed via their Wednesday injury report that Thomas was indeed concussed.
So that’s two concussions in a five-week span.
Thomas was nagged by a hamstring injury for much of his rookie year, but multiple concussions are a much bigger deal and ultimately a long-term concern.
Thomas was a second-round pick in 2011. He’s largely been a disappointment in Miami.
