lose Ronnie Brown to knee injury
Dolphins RB Ronnie Brown
suffers torn ACL, will miss the rest of the season.
already troubled Miami Dolphins have lost running back Ronnie
Brown, after he suffered a knee injury during the last week's
game against the New England Patriots. Dolphins head coach Cam
Cameron said today that after an MRI it became known that Brown
will require a surgery to repair a torn ACL (anterior cruciate
ligament) and will miss the rest of the season. "He was
having a Pro Bowl season. There's no doubt about it," coach
Cameron reminisced about the condition of his running back
before the unfortunate knee injury. This is the second player
the Dolphins lose to torn ACL this week - safety Renaldo Hill is
also out for the NFL season.
Ronnie Brown was the Dolphins 2005
first-round second draft pick from Auburn. Last season he missed
three games with a broken left hand, but he still managed to
finish the season with 1,008 rushing yards, 276 receiving yards
and five touchdowns. This season Brown had 100+ rushing yards in
four consecutive games prior to the match-up with the Patriots.
With Ronnie Brown out of the picture, Cam Cameron would likely
rely on RBs Jesse Chatman or Patrick Cobbs for the Sunday game
against the New York Giants in London - the first regular-season
NFL game held in Europe. For that game the Giants are favorite
Bookmaker with odds -425 and
the Dolphins underdog at +355. The point spread is favoring the
Giants -9 points.
