Dolphins RB Thomas expected to miss several games

Posted: Updated:

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - Miami Dolphins running back Daniel Thomas is expected to miss several games because of a left ankle injury, leaving the team with little experience behind starter Lamar Miller.

Marcus Thigpen and rookie Mike Gillislee will replace Thomas, offensive coordinator Mike Sherman said Monday. Thomas was hurt in Sunday's loss to Carolina.

Thigpen is a kick returner with three carries in his two NFL seasons. Gillislee, a fifth-round draft pick from Florida in April, hasn't been active yet.

Thomas handled the Dolphins' short-yardage situations and was averaging 3.6 yards per carry.
