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.

'Won't be too long' until Knowshon Moreno returns for Miami
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said he's not worried about Knowshon Moreno coming back in bad shape. The team opens training camp on Thursday and will begin practicing soon thereafter. Moreno had offseason knee surgery after reportedly showing up to camp out of shape. 

"Not full throttle 100 percent reps yet but won't be too long," Philbin said of Moreno via the Miami Herald.

Brandon Gibson expected to be full speed soon
by Larry Hartstein |

Dolphins coach Joe Philbin is not concerned about Brandon Gibson's comeback from a major knee injury and he's confident Gibson will be full speed soon, according to the Miami Herald. Gibson tore his patellar tendon in the middle of last season but reportedly was moving well as of a month ago.

When healthy, Gibson should compete for the No. 3 receiver spot.

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.

Ryan Tannehill entering crucial season
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

This is a big season coming up for Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill, reports ESPN.

The report says the "kid gloves are off and this a crucial third year for the former first-round pick. Is Tannehill a franchise building block or just another average quarterback? He's shown reasons to make a case for both sides. But the Dolphins are standing behind Tannehill for at least one more season to see if he can improve on his 15-17 career record."

This year Tannehill must prove he can lead the Dolphins to the playoffs. And he must do so while learning a new offense for the first time in his career. If he struggles, the team could look at finding a new quarterback for next season.
