Dolphins' O affected little by Henne injury

Frankly, I just don't know how Chad Henne's fantasy owners will be able to overcome his season-ending injury (a separated left shoulder). It's too much to take. I mean, Peyton Manning, Jamaal Charles, Kenny Britt and now Henne is done, too? Just throw in the towel on the season, man.

OK, so that's sarcasm at play, but Henne is done for 2011, and although I have all the faith in the world that his fantasy owners -- he's still owned in 31 percent of ESPN standard leagues -- will find a way to carry on by adding the likes of Colt McCoy, Andy Dalton or Alex Smith (in that order), I am seeing a lot of questions about how his loss affects Brandon Marshall and other Miami Dolphins.

For the record, and I'm sure it wouldn't be too hard to find what I wrote/said after Henne's misleading Week 1 performance (33 fantasy points against the New England Patriots), this wasn't a strong passing offense to start with. Henne is owned in nearly one-third of leagues because fantasy owners got excited after Week 1, when the team's main running back was out and the Patriots weren't yet regarded as sieves defensively.
