Miami Dolphins lose Ronnie Brown to knee injury

Dolphins RB Ronnie Brown suffers torn ACL, will miss the rest of the season.

Miami Dolphins lose Ronnie Brown to knee injury The 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 at Bookmaker with odds -425 and the Dolphins underdog at +355. The point spread is favoring the Giants -9 points.
