Dolphins injury report completely blank

DAVIE, Fla. -- How's this for refreshing?

The Miami Dolphins just passed out their first injury report of 2008, and there's not a single name on it. Nary a player, even though we know some are battling various bumps and bruises.

For instance, OLB Joey Porter has a sore lower back. RB Ronnie Brown has a right thumb injury.

So perhaps it's an act of defiance, a way of telling the New York Jets, "Buckle up, boys, because we're lining up."

The Jets, meanwhile, list WR David Clowney (shoulder) as out. Limited in practice Wednesday were DB David Barrett (shoulder), WR Laveranues Coles (thigh), DE Shaun Ellis (hand), WR Marcus Henry (calf), DB Justin Miller (foot) and RT Damien Woody (shoulder).

The Patriots, infamous for their injury report Tom Brady foolery, had four players who didn't practice: WR Sam Aiken (knee), OL Dan Connolly (knee), DL Le Kevin Smith (knee), TE Ben Watson (knee). OL Russ Hochstein (groin) was limited. Brady was listed as participating fully, but he was labeled as having right shoulder and foot injuries.
