Brown gets honor while Dolphins tweak roster

The Dolphins are back at work this morning and some of the guys practicing are not on the roster while some of the guys on the roster are absent -- which obviously means roster moves have been made.

Running back Jalen Parmele was not at practice because he was waived, with his spot on the roster taken by tight end Joey Haynos, who was signed off the Green Bay practice squad. The Dolphins also waived practice squad tight end Drew Atchison and signed guard Matt McChesney to take his place.

Bottom line, Parmele, the first of Miami's three sixth-round draft picks, is not here. If he clears waivers Parmele is eligible to re-signed to the practice squad.

All of this is happening as Miami starting running back Ronnie Brown has been named AFC offensive player of the week by the NFL. Brown rushed for 113 yards on 17 carries and scored four touchdowns and threw for another score in a 38-13 dismantling of the Patriots.

"It's exciting," Brown said of the honor. "It's rewarding for myself getting this especially since I'm coming off that injury. I think it's a sign things are going in the right direction."

The Dolphins had a very good practice today, according to coach Tony Sparano. Players were working hard and "fast" and "efficient," he said. That is one reason the team got all its work done eight minutes before schedule.

Meanwhile, outside linebacker coach Jim Reid was feeling poorly after a running session and Davie paramedics were called to attend to him. Sparano said he was feeling dizzy. Linebacker Reggie Torbor is nursing a hamstring injury and did not practice today.
