Pouncey (hip) participated in team drills during Monday's practice, James Walker of ESPN.com reports.
Pouncey isn't out of the woods just yet with the hip injury, but his involvement in drills certainly amounts to a positive step. It's unlikely the Dolphins will use Pouncey in their second preseason contest Thursday against the Ravens, but the center looks like he'll be ready to go for Week 1.
Pouncey (hip) is unlikely to practice Monday and Tuesday, Chris Parker of the Sun-Sentinel reports.
Pouncey hasn't suffered a setback but rather the team is playing it safe with their oft injured center and feel no need rush him back with the season opener still four weeks away. He is still expected to be starting center for Miami this season.
Pouncey (hip) progressed to 11-on-11 drills at Saturday's practice, Chris Perkins of The Sun Sentinel reports.
Saturday's practice workload marks the most he has been able to do since being sidelined in November with a hip ailment. Starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill got knocked out for the season earlier in the week, so Pouncey will work on building a rapport with the recently acquired Jay Cutler. He only played a few snaps Saturday, but his presence in the drill marks another significant step made in his recovery.
Pouncey (hip) was cleared for practice by a specialist Tuesday, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.
Pouncey will still be subject to a team physical with the Dolphins on Wednesday, but the specialist's clearance bodes well for his chances at participation throughout training camp. The team hopes he'll be 100 percent for Week 1 of the regular season, so it will continue to proceed cautiously with Pouncey as he looks to avoid any setbacks.
Pouncey (hip) has an appointment next week and expects to be cleared for practice at that time, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Everything is going according to plan for Pouncey and he hasn't suffered any setbacks during his rehabilitation. He is fully expected to be ready to play once the regular season begins but his practice time will be limited. The Dolphins offensive line has been a question mark the past couple of seasons and part of the problem has been the inability of Pouncey to stay on the field, so the team will play it extremely cautious with his hip with the hopes that rest will allow him to play week in and week out.
