When Thomas has been healthy, he's been one of the better backs in the NFL, averaging 4.9 yards per carry and more than 100 yards per game. Thomas' problem is that he's only played in two of the Dolphins' four games, though all signs point to him being back on the field for the Dolphins' Monday night game against the New York Jets.
"It's been pretty frustrating. Missing games my rookie year is the last thing I want to do," Thomas told the paper. "I've missed the first few games, but at the same time it's gotten a whole lot better and I feel like I'll be ready to go."
