The Phinsider: Brown's Injury 'Sickening'

Dolphins fans are obviously upset about Ronnie Brown’s injury, but not just because the hurt foot puts Ricky Williams back in an uncomfortable every-down role, and not just because any injury is bad news. No, it’s especially sad for Brown, whom The Phinsider calls one of the NFL’s “good guys”:

This means that Ricky Williams will suddenly be thrust back into the workhorse role – a role he isn’t exactly a big fan of. Expect to see some opportunities for Lex Hilliard and Kory Sheets as well.

You also can’t help but wonder about Ronnie’s future in Miami. If a new CBA is not reached between the players and the owners, then Brown is under contract in Miami for one more season – with a salary of $5 million. But if a new CBA is reached prior to the start of the 2010 “league year” – meaning that the uncapped season does not happen – then Brown is a free agent.

It’s a tough break for Ronnie, no doubt about it. And it’s sickening to me as well – as one of the NFL’s “good guys” suffers his second season-ending injury in three years. Talk about bad luck.

Ronnie Brown Placed on IR With Foot Injury
