Center Pouncey puts aside health worries to rejoin Dolphins
DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Miami Dolphins Pro Bowl center Mike Pouncey returned to practice Tuesday after missing the first four games of the season because of a broken left hip that raised concerns about his career.
It was his third hip injury since 2014.
Pouncey acknowledged he’s mindful of the long-term effects his injuries to both hips might have, but he’s eager to rejoin a team off to another slow start heading into Sunday’s game against Tennessee.
The Dolphins are 1-3 in large part because of a sputtering offense that has had trouble running the ball and protecting Ryan Tannehill.
Pouncey should help in both areas.
