The Patriots officially have signed running back Lamar Miller, but he may not be ready to go right away.

Miller has been placed on the PUP (physically unable to perform) list. He joins fellow running back Sony Michel on the list. The two can come off it at any time, they just cannot practice until they do.

The 29-year-old, who made the Pro Bowl in 2018, has been productive when healthy playing for the Dolphins and Texans. He ran for over 1,000 yards in 2014 and 2016. The running back also has the ability to catch the ball out of the backfield, as he's had at least 25 catches in every year since his rookie season, including a career-high 47 in 2015.

Miller joins Michel, Rex Burkhead, Damien Harris, James White and J.J. Taylor in the running backs room.
