Even though Ronnie Brown says his surgically repaired right knee feels strong, the Dolphins plan to ease the tailback into his return from his season-ending ACL injury.

Coach Tony Sparano said on WQAM (560-AM) that the team will "sprinkle" Brown into contact work during training camp, which opens Saturday.

Meanwhile, the Dolphins worked out former Rutgers offensive tackle Pedro Sosa on Tuesday. Sosa, who is 6 feet 4, 300 pounds, started 38 games for the Scarlet Knights. He was a two-time second-team All-Big East selection.
