Sparano Mum on Porter

Tony Sparano confirmed after Sunday's game it was a "coach's decision" that led to Joey Porter being de-activated for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay, but he wasn't about to give out more details.

In fact, after being asked about Porter a third time, Sparano told reporters to stop asking.

"Anything I do I keep in house," Sparano said. "To me, what goes on in our family, in that locker room, stays in that locker room. Somebody else wants to put it out there, let them put it out there, but they ain't getting it from me."

Sparano did indicate that Porter would be back with his teammates on Monday when the Dolphins begin their preparations for Thursday night's game at Carolina.
