    Two Miami Dolphin cornerbacks missed Saturday's preseason game against the Carolina Panthers because they are suspected of having swine flu.

    At first, the word from sources was that Sean Smith and Jason Allen definitely have the swine flu.

    But once The Miami Herald broke the story, the team flak moved in for some damage control, saying that the players were still undergoing tests to determine the actual diagnosis.

    And even when that diagnosis is confirmed, said spokesman Harvey Greene, it will not be released to the public.

    But that’s ok because apparently there are plenty of sources on the team that are willing to share information with the media.

    The two players were so sick this week that they were unable to get out of bed.
