Brown Among Four Players Out

We already knew running back Ronnie Brown wouldn't be playing Thursday night at Carolina, but now you can add three other Dolphins players to that list. In addition to Brown, tight end Anthony Fasano, nose tackle Paul Soliai and linebacker Erik Walden all have been ruled out of the game against the Panthers.

It will be the second consecutive game missed for those last three players.

Guard Justin Smiley, meanwhile, is listed as questionable for the Carolina after sitting out last Sunday because of a shoulder injury. Safety Tyrone Culver joined the injury report on Wednesday and he's listed as questionable because of an ankle injury.

Finally, safety Gibril Wilson (hamstring) is listed as probable.

For Carolina, both of their star running backs, DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart, are listed as questionable. Williams (knee) didn't practice on Wednesday, while Stewart practiced on a full basis despite an Achilles problem.

For the Panthers, safety Charles Godfrey (ankle), fullback Brad Hoover (ankle) and defensive end Charles Johnson (pectoral) are all listed as doubtful; and defensive tackle Damione Lewis (shoulder) is listed as questionable along with Williams and Stewart.
