Tony Sparano just finished meeting with the media in South Florida and here is what we know. He has confirmed that Ronnie Brown will not play on Thursday night. This should come as no surprise to anyone. Brown will go see a foot specialist before they know anything more about how long he might be out for. Let's hope for the best for Brown.
Meanwhile, Sparano basically called by Chris Mortensen a liar. He didn't use those words, but he did say that Joey Porter will play on Thursday. Asked if Porter will be the starter on Thursday, Sparano said he "thinks he will."
So much for Mortensen's report that claimed Porter wouldn't play on Thursday. The Dolphins are expected to use a rotation at outside linebacker, however - which is probably a good idea considering how effective both Charlie Anderson and Cameron Wake were last week against Tampa Bay.
