Dolphins RB Thomas ruled out vs. Giants with hamstring injury

The Miami Dolphins have ruled out running back Daniel Thomas for Sunday's matchup with the New York Giants because of a lingering hamstring injury, a team source told NFL Network's Stacey Dales.

Thomas was originally listed as questionable in Friday's injury report but was not on the team's flight to New York.

Thomas' absence will mean a larger role for starter Reggie Bush, who had been sharing carries with Thomas. Lex Hilliard and Steve Slaton could see more action as well, as the Dolphins go up against the Giants' 27th-ranked run defense.

Dolphins cornerback Vontae Davis has also been ruled out of his second straight game with a hamstring injury. He was previously listed as doubtful.

This is the second time in four weeks that Thomas, who totaled 53 yards on 19 carries in the Dolphins' Week 7 loss to the Denver Broncos, has been held out with a hamstring injury.

Thomas has totaled 302 yards on 75 carries as well as a pair of touchdowns and 49 yards on seven receptions this season.
