Henne, Long to lead Dolphins' player-run workouts

Two key members of the Dolphins -- offensive tackle Jake Long and quarterback Chad Henne -- have organized team workouts scheduled to begin Monday, according to a report in the *South Florida Sun Sentinel*

Players don't expect the participation level to be very high. The newspaper reports that many players have been advised by their agents to skip the workouts and train with professionals at full-service facilities.

"If a guy works out right now and suffers an injury, he's not covered by his NFL contract during this lockout. So if you get injured, the team doesn't have to pay your salary next year," agent Drew Rosenhaus said. "It's not a sanctioned activity, so if a guy goes out there and blows his knee, the team can say they've decided not to pay your contract this year. It's very risky."

With coordinator Brian Daboll installing a new offensive scheme, Henne and the offense are on the clock to catch up. Henne told The Miami Herald in late February that he had been meeting with Daboll in the period before the official offseason began, which led to the Dolphins being fined for violating offseason rules prohibiting contact with players before team activities are allowed.
