Dolphins’ Lamar Miller leaves Sunday’s game with a concussion

The Miami Dolphins proved they could be fish out of water going into a snowy Pittsburgh and sliding away with a victory, keeping their Wild Card hopes alive.  The end of the season playoff push might be sans Dolphins’ running back Lamar Miller who left the snowy Sunday game with a concussion.

James Walker of reports that Miller left Sunday's victory in the third quarter after taking a big hit from Steelers' safety Ryan Clark.  Miller's status for next Sunday's showdown with the New England Patriots is unclear.

Replaced by back up RB Daniel Thomas, Miller left the game and did not return.  Miller is Miami's leading ground gainer with 142 carries for 567 yards and two touchdowns.

Miami's ground attack is currently ranked 23rd in the NFL averaging only 95.8 yards per game.  It is not anything to write home about but it is just enough to keep some pressure off quarterback Ryan Tannehill.

Tied with the Baltimore Ravens for the second AFC Wild Card spot, Miami’s road to the Super Bowl, though a rocky one, would be much smoother if Miller missed the least amount of time as possible.
