Miami Dolphins starting running back Lamar Miller, who ran for over 1,000 yards last season, has been ruled out for a return to the game against the Jacksonville Jaguars after sustaining an ankle injury. Miller left the game late in the second half, and will now be replaced by Damien Williams.

Miller finished the game with 10 carries for just 14 yards.

Williams has carried the ball twice for five yards. He also has 2 receptions for 12 yards. He caught Miami's first touchdown on the day, a ten yard pass from quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who was rolling to his left and threw to Williams as he crossed the field.

Currently, Tannehill leads the team in rushing, with 17 yards on three carries. The Dolphins have not been able to run at all against the Jaguars' defense.

The game is currently tied at 20, with the Jaguars in possession with six minutes remaining in the contest.
