    Apparently his knee injury was worse than feared.

    It is almost enough to make you feel bad for Miami, as Brown was one of the few good players they have.

    Almost makes you feel bad, but not really.

    I feel badly about that; he's a hard-runner and a good football player.

    I feel TERRIBLE for him, and for the dolphins. That blows. As if that London game wasn't going to suck hard enough, now the phins have no playmakers whatsoever.

    Ronnie Brown is a fantastic running back. It's too bad for him. I certainly hope he fully recovers from his knee injury.

    I feel bad for him too. I don't wish injuries upon others, even if they're rivals. Ronnie is a great back and was having a breakout season this year. Very unfortunate thing. Let's just hope our key guys stay healthy. We've had quite some bad luck with injuries throughout the last few years, but this year (so far, knock on wood) isn't bad at all.

    I was seriously impressed watching Brown yesterday. From his intensity, you would have thought it was a tie game with playoff implications. Hate to see something like this happen.

    (Looking honestly into my soul, is it easier to feel sorry about it because the Dolphins are no threat? Yeah, probably. But it's sincere anyway.)

    Wonder if the Dolphins will be more apt to bring Ricky Williams back into the fold now.

    i feel for ronnie, and the fins..its not really their fault they suck, its the front office...

    That's terrible news for Brown and the Fins. Wish him all the luck in a quick recovery.

    That being said, how much is the game against the Fins on 12/23 going to suck. I hope the Pats have something to play for, and the Fins reinstate Ricky. I say this because I shelled out good money for tix to that game, and now it's gonna probably be a complete laugher. Preseason in December. But who knows.

    Here's hoping to it being interesting.

    Too bad for RB. He has become a great running back this year and its hard that his season ended just like that. He didn't even make contact with anybody. I honestly don't know what it feels like to lose your best player to injury and hopefully I won't ever have to experience Brady going down.

    Wow, we really do leave devastation in our wake.

    At season end, someone will have to summarize the personnel changes immediately following our games e.g. the Bills QB situation.

    hmm, yea...also, which cahnges were good? im thinking the bills change to the rookie qb was good...maybe brown being out is good for the fins? although i highly doubt it...

    At the least, I hope he doesn't have any long term damage. If it's a torn ACL, that means they're screwed for 2 extra years. Just when he was finally realizing his potential, too... Well, at least he'll get to play with Brian Brohm the next time he lines up.

    Man, they'll be lucky to win a game at this rate. Season-ending knee injuries don't bode well for a running back's future, either. That sucks.

    Miami & St. Louis will fight it out for the #1 Pick.

    I think Miami just took the inside track.

    While watching the game I verbally hoped he'd be alright. It seems Brown's not quite alright if he's going to miss the remainder of the season, though. Hopefully he'll come back 100% next year.

    Man, I really hate injuries.
