Dolphins place Mike Pouncey, Knowshon Moreno on PUP list
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Dolphins opened training camp Friday by placing center Mike Pouncey and running back Knowshon Moreno on the physically unable to perform list, reports ESPN.

Pouncey had major hip surgery this summer and reportedly could miss as much as eight weeks of the regular season. Moreno had a cleanup procedure on his knee and should return before the end of the preseason.

Both players are expected to eventually be key members of Miami's offense. Pouncey is arguably the Dolphins’ best offensive player. Moreno, who started last year for the Broncos, signed a one-year contract to compete with incumbent starting tailback Lamar Miller.

Mike Pouncey now expected to miss half the season
by Larry Hartstein |

Initial reports suggested Dolphins center Mike Pouncey might return from the torn labrum in his hip in late September. The Miami Herald reports that's unrealistic. A source tells the paper Pouncey likely will miss the season's first eight weeks, which covers seven games and a bye.

It's bad news for quarterback Ryan Tannehill and the entire offense.

Dolphins try to replace Mike Pouncey
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Dolphins don't have many options to replace center Mike Pouncey, who is out for start of the season because of hip surgery, reports ESPN. He is expected to miss the next three to four months, which includes all of training camp, the preseason and the start of the regular season. 

The report says the Dolphins have three options at this stage. They can go with undrafted second-year player Sam Brenner, who received second-team reps at center this offseason and filled in at guard last season for the suspended Richie Incognito. They can use versatile backup Nate Garner, who also played center last season in place of Pouncey for two games and could be the second in-house plan. The third option is to look for outside help via trade or free agency, which could be slim pickings at this stage of the offseason.

Whatever choice Miami makes, it's replacement plan won't be nearly as good as Pouncey. He is one of the top centers in the NFL and the drop off will be significant no matter who plays in Week 1.
