Miami signs Ramsey, not sure about Henne

Miami Dolphins head coach Tony Sparano isn't ruling out Chad Henne's return to action this year.

In a lively news conference that featured some reporter-on-reporter jabbing over a South Florida Sun-Sentinel story that stated Henne probably was done for the season, Sparano said the Dolphins were treating him as "day to day" and said he was "hopeful" Henne could start again this year.

Henne hurt his left knee in the third quarter of Sunday's 29-17 victory over the Tennessee Titans. Sparano didn't give further details on Henne's status, but declined to rule him out for Thursday night's game against the Chicago Bears.

That would seem unlikely. Henne left Sun Life Stadium on crutches.

Other Dolphins updates and reports from Monday:

  • The Dolphins signed free-agent quarterback Patrick Ramsey and placed Pennington on injured reserve.

  • Sparano didn't release names of who else worked out, but multiple reports named JaMarcus Russell, J.T. O'Sullivan, Tom Brandstater and Tommy Grady in addition to Ramsey.

  • Sparano didn't seem too concerned with left tackle Jake Long's shoulder injury, stating Long managed to play after he got hurt Sunday.

  • Miami Herald reporter Jeff Darlington, citing an unnamed source, tweeted outside linebacker Cameron Wake was sent home with an ice pack and a couple Advils for his sore hip. Sounds like Wake will get his chance to tee off on Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, who has been sacked a league-high 29 times.
