DAVIE (CBSMiami) – The hits to the Miami Dolphins running game kept coming Monday when the team announced that running back Daniel Thomas is likely out for the remainder of the season with an ankle injury.

Specifically, Thomas has torn ligaments in his ankle, according to Dolphins offensive coordinator Mike Sherman.

Thomas has struggled to stay healthy since the Dolphins drafted him in the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft. He’s not played in 16 games since he entered the league two years ago.

This year, Thomas has played in all 11 games and started one. He’s run the ball 77 times for 279 yards and three touchdowns. For his career, Thomas has averaged 3.6 yards per carry and just 32.9 yards per game.

With Thomas out, the onus to get any semblance of a running game moving forward is squarely on the shoulders of Lamar Miller. So far in 2013, Miller has been underwhelming at best averaging 4.2 yards per carry and just 43 rushing yards per game.
