Dolphins' Daniel Thomas Passes Concussion Test, Still Won't Play Sunday
Dolphins running back Daniel Thomas was bonked on the head during 30-10 loss against the Houston Texans last Sunday. He left the game with an apparent concussion and didn't return.
But according to Orlando Alzugary of 640 Sports, Thomas passed his concussion test. However, according to Alzugary's sources, the team has decided to hold him out of this week's game against the Oakland Raiders, even though Head Coach Joe Philbin wouldn't publicly say so.
Because apparently, keeping the Raiders in the dark about a mediocre injury-prone player is how we're going to win this game!
The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports that Thomas didn't participate in Wednesday's practice but just worked out on the side.
Before getting clocked by the Texans' Grover Quin on Sunday, Thomas ran for 11 yards on three carries and also had a 32-yard reception. He ran for 581 yards during an injury-plagued rookie season. He's one of Jeff Ireland's ingenious second-round selections.
Meanwhile, the Dolphins announced today that they'll be giving away 1972 Perfect Season hats to people who come to Sunday's game at Sun Life Stadium.
Because nothing says how much ass our team sucks than to celebrate success from 40 years ago.
Team CEO Mike Dee tweeted out that members of the '72 team will personally hand out the hats to everyone in attendance, which seems kind of logistically impossible.
But who's gonna argue with a team drenched in excellence like the Miami Dolphins?
The game kicks off at 1.
