Mike Pouncey MIA 2 Days
Pouncey (hip), who isn't sure when he'll be ready to practice, thinks he'll be healthy enough to play before mid-season and is thus "praying" the Dolphins don't put him on the PUP list to begin the upcoming campaign, the Sun Sentinel reports.
Pouncey underwent hip surgery in June and was initially scheduled for three months of recovery. That time frame put Pouncey's return after Week 1 of the regular season. Although the center admits he's unsure whether he'll be ready for Sept. 7 versus New England, Pouncey thinks he'll be fit to play before the six-week window that players on the PUP list are required to sit to begin the season. While Pouncey's situation will be sorted out in the next couple weeks, Samson Satele should continue to start at center for the Dolphins.

Pouncey (hip) believes he could be ready to play by mid-September, according to the Miami Herald.
Pouncey is still following his rehab protocol following hip surgery but has progressed faster than expected and could avoid the PUP to start the season. This would be good news for both the running and passing games in Miami.

Pouncey has started running and believes he could be back in time for the season opener. While that may be extremely optimistic this does bode well for his chances of opening up the season on the active roster rather than on the PUP.

The NFL isn't expected to suspend Dolphins C Mike Pouncey for his involvement in Bullygate, accruing to the Miami Herald.
NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said there's been "no change in [Pouncey's] active status," and he doesn't "anticipate having to address the issue again." All four of Pouncey, Jonathan Martin, Richie Incognito, and John Jerry are/were expected to undergo a mental evaluation before returning to the field. It's unclear it those have already happened. Pouncey will miss the first month or so of the season with a torn labrum in his hip. Incognito is the only one out of work.

A man claims he was assaulted by Dolphins C Mike Pouncey and Steelers C Maurkice Pouncey at the twins' birthday party at Cameo Nightclub in Miami Beach Friday night.
The alleged victim Ricky Vasquez took to Twitter, claiming he was "jumped by 4 bouncers and the Pouncey Twins." Vasquez added he was attacked because of his sexual orientation, claiming the assailants used homophobic slurs and saying, "I feel like I just got gay bashed." The Miami Beach PD released a statement saying, "There was an incident that occurred at Cameo last night at 4:20 a.m., where an alleged assault took place. We have not confirmed it's the Pouncey brothers that are the subjects, but we are going to have detectives contacting the victims to investigate further." This is not the first time the brothers' birthday party has made the news. The two got into hot water at last year's event for wearing "Free Hernandez" hats in support of former Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez. This incident is obviously more serious, and if founded, could lead to legal action as well as suspensions for each player.

A source with knowledge of the situation tells Profootballtalk.com that Dolphins C Mike Pouncey's labrum tear in his hip is "significant" and occurred during Organized Team Activities.
Pouncey has a high pain tolerance -- he played through kidney stones last year -- but a three-month timetable is considered "very optimistic," per PFT, and it's possible Pouncey will be sidelined quite a bit longer than that. Because the injury occurred before training camp, Pouncey will be eligible to open camp on the active/PUP list, and open the season on reserve/PUP, which would cost him the first six games of the season. The Dolphins' bye is in Week 4. It sounds like a best-case scenario would be Pouncey returning in Week 5.
