Ronnie Brown, off to one of his best seasons, likely will miss Thursday's game at Carolina because of an ankle injury he sustained Sunday.
An afternoon that began with an electric, 45-yard run by tailback Ronnie Brown ended with Brown limping out of the Miami Dolphins' locker room on crutches.
But, in all likelihood, it will keep him out of Miami's next game Thursday at Carolina.
``Obviously, I can't really talk about it right now,'' Brown said. ``We've still got to do some tests and see what happens. We did some X-rays. I don't think it's too bad.''
Still, the injury threatens to derail Brown's best statistical season since in 2006, the only time in his five-year career he has topped 1,000 yards.
