Dolphins RB Brown leaves game with knee injury

Oct 22, 2007 - 1:23 AM MIAMI (Ticker) -- Miami Dolphins running back Ronnie Brown suffered a right knee injury Sunday and was forced to leave the team's 49-28 loss to the New England Patriots.

Brown suffered the injury while attempting to tackle Patriots defensive back Randall Gay during an interception return midway through the third quarter.

After being examined on the sideline for approximately five minutes, Brown walked to the locker room under his own power.

The Dolphins' leading rusher and receiver, Brown is scheduled to undergo an MRI exam on Monday. The team did not say if he would be available for next week's game against the New York Giants in London.

"I didn't feel anything pop and I just got it twisted up, but I really don't know the extent of it," Brown said. "Maybe I'll miss a couple days of practice and get ready for the London trip so I can be out there and be able to contribute.

"I had an X-ray and it was negative. So I've got to get an MRI in the morning and get the status of that, but hopefully everything's negative on that part."

Brown, who entered the contest as the NFL leader in yards from scrimmage, rushed for 76 yards on 17 carries while hauling in five catches for 33 yards against the Patriots.

The second overall draft selection in 2005, Brown has 602 rushing yards and four touchdowns in seven games this season for the winless Dolphins. The 25-year-old also has 39 catches for 389 yards and one score.
