I'm actually a big fan of his, sucks for the Dolphins. Do any fans know if this is a repeat of last year's injury?

Too bad. He was having his best season ever. Guy is a good player when he isnt hurt

Pretty lame, but at least now he'll be consistent for my fantasy team.

RIP wildcat?

Pat White better be ready for some more snaps, or will they use Ricky?

Glad I picked up Ricky Williams for my fantasy team a few weeks ago

It's always like that for him though...Last time he was tearing it up like this he got hurt then too, and it's not like they weren't using Ricky also so they weren't running him to death. Some of them are freak injuries, but looks like he really can't escape the injury bug more times then not, as good as he is.

I think Pat White will get some more snaps but ultimately I think they are going to more of a conventional offense. Brown was the heart of the Wildcat.

I'm forced to rely on Steve Slaton to compliment Chris Johnson in fantasy now. Ugh.

Ricky's been getting a lot of snaps out of the wildcat the past few weeks though, especially towards the other team's end of the field.

Not surprised with Brown missing the season. He's only had one full season where he's been healthy. 07 he was tearing it up and then torn his acl middle of the season and now he has a foot injury that could keep him out until training camp next year. Brown is good, but is too much injury prone. This is his last year in the contract and if his agent ask for big money, Parcells will let him walk and go find someone else.

And it will likely mean that the coaches will use more of the Pat White package. Ricky can run the wildcat, but dont think he will be as productive as Brown.

Really really tough loss for the Dolphins. Brown is one of my favorite backs in the NFL - perfect for the ball control offense they have. He never loses yardage, always falling foward. He squeezes out the extra inches needed to win football games. As a football player he just does everything the right way. Really bummed out that he's lost for the year.

Wow, I traded him, Steve Smith of the Giants, and Antonio Gates about a week ago for Andre Johnson and Brent Celek. :)

Tyler Thigpen only knows two things: TDs and Boning.

Glad I've kept Ricky Williams around on my bench all season.
