Brown is week-to-week following surgery

DAVIE, Fla. (Nov. 25, 2006) -- Miami Dolphins running back Ronnie Brown will be evaluated on a week-to-week basis following surgery on his broken left hand.

Brown, injured during the third quarter of the Dolphins 27-10 win at Detroit, had surgery Nov. 24.

"It may be several weeks before he gets back, but we don't know that, nobody knows that," Dolphins coach Nick Saban said. "Running back is not an easy position to play when you don't have use of one of your hands. We're not going to put him out on the field at risk of his healing, that's for sure."

Miami has won four straight following a 1-6 start. The Dolphins' don't play until Dec. 3 when they are scheduled to face Jacksonville at home.
