Dolphins players coming down with swine flu

Miami Herald - [Full Article]

Although there is currently not a major fear of a potential epidemic, the Dolphins have advised their players that some of their teammates (as few as two) will not attend tonight's preseason game against the Panthers after testing positive for the swine flu, three sources said.

The team advised its players this morning but did not name specifically who had come down with the illness. Team spokesman Harvey Greene did not have any comment.

The disease is considered manageable and symptoms in healthy adults tend to be mild, but its high level of contagiousness will cause a serious task for the team's staff of trainers to make sure it doesn't spread to other players as the regular season approaches.
