Running back Lamar Miller agreed to terms with the Patriots three days ago. He signed Thursday.

But Miller will begin his Patriots’ career on the active/physically unable to perform list, Mike Reiss of ESPN reports. The Patriots can remove Miller from the list as soon as he passes a physical.

Miller, 29, tore an anterior cruciate ligament in the 2019 preseason while still with the Texans.

Miller entered the league as a fourth-round draft choice of the Dolphins in 2012. He has 5,864 rushing yards, putting him in the top 100 for all-time career yards.

In 2018, he gained 1,136 yards from scrimmage on 235 touches and scored six touchdowns. Miller made his first Pro Bowl that season.
