Sun, 29 Jul 2012 17:48:45 -0700

Miami Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin said he is not committed to any specific number of times a running back needs to touch the football this season.

You want a guy to touch the football X-amount of times because those guys have a higher chance of getting yourself a big play, but I'm not locked into any one formula." RBs Reggie Bush, Daniel Thomas, Steve Slaton and rookie Lamar Miller are all jockeying for playing time during training camp.
