Dolphins coach Tony Sparano had a very brief chat with the media after practice today as he continues to get his team ready for Sunday’s game against the Browns. Today, Cleveland coach Eric Mangini officially announced that Jake Delhomme would be his starting quarterback, which didn’t seem to surprise Sparano, who said that was the main guy they were preparing for this week. As for injuries, CB Al Harris, who hurt a hamstring yesterday, was not at practice and DL Phillip Merling, recently re-activated to the 53-man roster, may or may not be available for the game. Sparano said he would make a decision on that tomorrow night.

As for the Dolphins’ QB situation, when asked who the #3 quarterback would be on Sunday, Sparano joked that “You’re looking at him.” While he didn’t get into any details, Sparano certainly seemed to hint that Ronnie Brown (and therefore the Wildcat) would be in the mix there.

"We have a couple of different alternatives," coach Tony Sparano said today. "We've done some work out there on the practice field, so we'll so how it goes. Obviously one of the things would be if we only had the two guys, then Ronnie [Brown] would be involved in some of that."

That's a possibility. Brown is a running back by trade. He is not a quarterback. But he's played the part, even this year in that Tennessee game, when he took QB snaps out of the Wildcat package. One supposes if both Henne and Thigpen go down, Brown could close out the game in a pinch.

It's not optimal, but it is possible. Brown has one pass attempt this year.

Incomplete.

Cleveland is doing us a big favor not starting McCoy
