Leading rusher in Week 18 win

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-07

Miller posted 13 rushes for 73 yards and one touchdown and caught his only target for six yards during Sunday's 48-17 win over the Falcons.

Miller made the most of his first game since the Week 9 win against Chicago, as he logged season highs across the board to go along with the first rushing touchdown of his career. The Saints were without starting running back Alvin Kamara (ankle), who was inactive. As a result, the team turned to veteran backup Jamaal Williams and Miller. The rookie running back got off to a strong start with a three-yard rushing score in the second quarter on just his fourth carry of the game, and he finished with a team high in rushing yards despite logging one fewer carry than Williams. New Orleans was eliminated from playoff contention despite winning Week 18; therefore, Miller finishes his 2023 rookie campaign with 41 carries for 156 yards and a touchdown.

Active Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-07

Miller (ankle/illness) is listed available for Sunday's tilt against the Falcons.

After limited participation in back-to-back practices earlier in the week, Miller logged a DNP Friday due to an illness on top of his ankle issue. However, he is seemingly feeling better and will suit up for the first time since Week 9. With Alvin Kamara (ankle) inactive, Miller and Jordan Mims will be the depth options behind Jamal Williams in the backfield.

Adds illness to ankle injury

Miller (ankle/illness) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Mike Triplett of NewOrleans.Football reports.

Miller was a limited participant Wednesday and Thursday, but he failed to practice Friday and is now dealing with an illness on top of the ankle injury that has sidelined him for the past seven games. With Alvin Kamara (ankle) questionable, Jamaal Williams could be the top healthy running back for the Saints on Sunday, with Miller possibly working in a change-of-pace role if the rookie plays and Kamara doesn't.

Limited participant again

Miller (ankle) was a limited participant in practice for the second straight day Thursday.

The running back has missed seven straight games with the ankle injury. Miller has 28 carries for 83 yards and no touchdowns this season, and he remains behind Alvin Kamara and Jamaal Williams on the depth chart.

Inactive in Week 17

Miller (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

The rookie's troublesome ankle was expected to keep him out for a seventh straight game, and his inactive status is now confirmed. Miller's absence isn't expected to impact a Saints backfield that will have Alvin Kamara after the latter was able to overcome a late-week illness, as well as veteran No. 2 back Jamaal Williams in his usual complementary role.

Likely to sit out Week 17

Miller (ankle) remains listed as questionable but isn't expected to play Sunday against the Buccaneers, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

Miller will likely be included among the Saints' list of inactives, which will be released 90 minutes prior to Sunday's 1 p.m. ET kickoff. Though Miller was a limited participant in practices Wednesday through Friday, head coach Dennis Allen intimated after the latter session that the running back was trending in the wrong direction for Sunday. Miller's expected absence for a seventh straight game thus comes as little surprise, but the fact that the Saints haven't yet placed him on injured reserve offers some hope that the rookie might be able to play Week 18 against the Falcons. Even if Miller is available for that contest, he's not likely to have much of a role in the backfield behind Alvin Kamara and Jamaal Williams, especially if the Saints have playoff implications at stake in the regular-season finale.

Trending in wrong direction

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-29

Miller was bothered by his injured ankle during Friday's practice and is trending in the wrong direction ahead of Sunday's matchup with Tampa Bay, Brooke Kirchhofer of NewOrleans.Football reports.

Dennis Allen said he'll still treat Miller as a game-time decision, but it sounds like the Saint coach doesn't expect the rookie to play. Miller officially is listed as questionable after logging limited practices throughout the week, and he now seems more likely than not to miss a seventh consecutive game. While there's no assurance of a meaningful role in the offense even if he gets healthy before the end of the season, Miller's availability is a bit more relevant this week with Alvin Kamara listed as questionable due to an illness. Kamara seems much more likely than Miller to play, at this point.

Questionable after limited practice

Miller (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Brooke Kirchhofer of NewOrleans.Football reports.

Miller was a limited participant in all three of New Orleans' practices Wednesday through Friday. Per Matthew Paras of The New Orleans Times-Picayune, coach Dennis Allen said Miller will be available Sunday but wouldn't commit to Miller being active on the gameday roster. Allen's comments suggest that Miller's healthy enough to play, but the team may not trust the rookie to handle a role in a must-win game after being unavailable since Week 9.

Still limited at practice Thursday

Miller (ankle) was a limited participant at practice Thursday, Brooke Kirchhofer of NewOrleans.Football reports.

Miller has missed the Saints' last six games due to an ankle sprain he sustained in Week 9 versus the Bears, and now his availability for Week 17 is also in doubt. If he can't manage to practice in full Friday, he'll probably carry an injury designation into the weekend.
