Miami Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas expects to make his return -- another one -- on Sunday in Kansas City.
Daniel Thomas, the Miami Dolphins rookie running back, sat out the first game of the season with a hamstring injury. He played the next two games, against Houston and at Cleveland.

It was like seeing a shooting star in full daylight. Miami Dolphins coach Tony Sparano rarely ever criticizes players.
You can point out how a certain offensive tackle - who shall remain nameless – has been a turnstile all season. Or you could hammer him on Brandon Marshall dropping a couple critical, but tough end zone passes – and Sparano would find some way to spin it...
KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Dolphins defensive coordinator Mike Nolan praised rookie cornerback Jimmy Wilson this week as “an overachiever” and said he had “more good plays than bad” last week against the Giants in his first NFL start. Nolan will need Wilson to play well again, as Wilson will be making his second straight start [...]
Three Dolphins Talking Points to start your Thursday morning: 1. Tony Sparano is a man searching for answers. He hasn’t had many this year, which has spiraled out of control for the Dolphins, now at 0-7. For the time being, he is resorting to changing the team’s routine on the practice field and inside the [...]
Dolphins running back Reggie Bush says that despite their 0-7 record, it’s still fun to be a Miami Dolphin. “Practice is still fun,” Bush said. “Guys are having a good time out there, still working and we’re still hacking away at it. It’s going to take one game at a time. We can’t worry.” Bush…
