Chargers' Mike Pouncey: Cleared for action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pouncey (neck) said Wednesday that he has been medically cleared to play and is back to training normally, Omar Ruiz of NFL Network reports.

The veteran center was placed on injured reserve in October and subsequently underwent surgery to address the neck issue. The injury had been viewed as a career-threatening concern, but Pouncey looks like he'll be ready to go for training camp.

Chargers' Mike Pouncey: Still awaiting clearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Anthony Lynn said Wednesday that he expects Pouncey (neck) to receive medical clearance for football activities by the time the Chargers reconvene for workouts, Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times reports.

The 30-year-old appeared in only five games last season due to the neck injury and ultimately required surgery, and Lynn previously indicated he wasn't sure whether the center's injury was career-ending. While Pouncey still hasn't been cleared months after surgery, Lynn's more recent comments seemingly implies optimism that the 30-year-old will still be able to play in 2020.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pouncey (shoulder) was removed from the injury report Friday, Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times reports.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pouncey inked a two-year deal with the Chargers on Monday.

Following his release from the Dolphins, Pouncey will look to rejuvenate his career on the west coast. He's considered to be one the league's most dependable centers and should provide stability for the Chargers at the position.

Mike Pouncey: Released by Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pouncey was released by the Dolphins on Thursday.

Pouncy was released prior to the fourth year of his five-year deal with Miami. The team and the veteran guard were unable to workout a restructured deal, leading to Pouncey's release. He'll likely catch on with another team in the near future.

Dolphins' Mike Pouncey: Clear of injury designation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pouncey (hamstring) won't carry an injury designation into Monday night's game against the Patriots.

Pouncey returned to practice as a full participant Saturday after being limited earlier in the week to avoid the questionable tag. The 28-year-old sustained the injury against the Broncos in Week 13, but will not miss any game action.

Dolphins' Mike Pouncey: Injury not serious
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pouncey (hamstring) should be good to go versus the Patriots in Week 14, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Pouncey left the game early Sunday due to the injury but head coach Adam Gase stated that he was removed more out of an abundance of caution than because of the nature of the injury. Gase also went on to say that the injury is in no way related to hip ailment that caused Pouncey so much trouble last season.

Dolphins' Mike Pouncey: Injures hamstring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pouncey injured his hamstring during Sunday's win over the Broncos, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Pouncey wasn't immediately ruled out for the remainder of the game upon suffering the hamstring injury, so there's a possibility he'll be good to go in Week 14 against the Patriots. If he's kept on the sideline, however, Jake Brendel could draw the start at center.

Dolphins' Mike Pouncey: Full participant at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pouncey (knee/hip) was able to fully participate in Tuesday's practice, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Pouncey cleared concussion protocol in time to play in Sunday's victory over the Jets but was still hurting due to the knee and hip issues following the contest. The Dolphins eased him into Week 8 preparations with a limited practice Monday, but his upgrade to a full session Tuesday puts him on track to play Thursday against the Ravens.

Dolphins' Mike Pouncey: Cleared to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mike Pouncey (concussion) is active for Sunday's game against the Jets.

Pouncey was removed from the Dolphins' Week 6 win over the Falcons in the first half with the concussion, but it didn't take him long to pass through the concussion protocol. The center was a full participant in the team's practice Friday and shouldn't see a restricted snap count Sunday due to the brevity of his absence.

Dolphins' Mike Pouncey: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pouncey (concussion/hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Pouncey was absent from practices Wednesday and Thursday, but was able to log a full session Friday, a sign that he's progressing nicely through the concussion protocol. Salguero adds that Pouncey will still need to receive clearance from a neurological consultant before he'll be able to play Sunday, but the Dolphins don't seem concerned that that will be an issue.

Dolphins' Mike Pouncey: Sits out practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pouncey (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Dolphins' Mike Pouncey: In concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pouncey is currently in the concussion protocol, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Pouncey suffered the injury during the game Sunday in Atlanta. As is usually the case with concussions, there is no timetable for his return, although the Dolphins will hold out hope that their best offensive lineman will be able to suit up Sunday versus the Jets.

Dolphins' Mike Pouncey: Evaluated for concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pouncey is being evaluated for a concussion and is questionable to return, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.

Dolphins' Mike Pouncey: Will eventually need hip surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pouncey will eventually need to have hip replacement surgery and it could shorten his career, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Pouncey missed 11 games last season because of the hip and is fully aware that it could crop up again at any time. Doctors have told Pouncey that he will likely need the replacement surgery within the next 5-10 years, but as of now, the hip isn't an issue and won't affect his status as the starting center.

Dolphins' Mike Pouncey: Will start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pouncey (hip) will start Thursday in Philadelphia, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

This is good news for Jay Ajayi and Jay Cutler, as Pouncey is the Dolphins best offensive lineman and one of the best centers in the NFL. A healthy Pouncey should help open up holes for Ajayi and help to protect Cutler.
