DAVIE, Fla. (AP) -Miami Dolphins running back Ronnie Brown will likely miss Saturday's exhibition against the Kansas City Chiefs with a strained right thumb.
Dolphins coach Tony Sparano said Thursday that Brown is not expected to play.
Brown, who was injured in Saturday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, has been wearing a wrap around his thumb and has not participated in contact drills this week.
``It's nothing major. It just hurts a little when I try to make catches and stuff,'' Brown said earlier in the week. ``I'll be fine when the regular season rolls around.''
Last year, Brown was on pace for a career year before he tore a ligament in his right knee and had season-ending surgery.
Ricky Williams has been Miami's best offensive option in the preseason, leading the team in rushing through the first two games.
