Lamar Miller: Miami Dolphins running back making strong case for starting job

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) -- Miami running back Lamar Miller plans to maximize his speed and quickness in the new offense the Dolphins are implementing .

With veteran free agent Knowshon Moreno unable to participate in camp because of a knee injury, the starting job right now is Miller's to lose. The Dolphins conducted their sixth practice of training camp Thursday and so far Miller has made a strong case in the eyes of new offensive coordinator Bill Lazor and head coach Joe Philbin.

Miller, entering his third year in the league, led the team in rushing last season with 709 yards and two touchdowns on 177 carries. He also caught 26 passes for 170 yards, which is something that the Dolphins could do more of with the former Miami Hurricane.
