Report: Mike Pouncey went to hospital on Friday

Dolphins center Mike Pouncey is questionable for Sunday’s game with the Chargers after he missed Friday’s practice.

Pouncey’s absence was chalked up to an illness and Jeff Darlington of NFL Network reports that the illness was severe enough to send Pouncey to the hospital. Darlington reports that Pouncey was dealing with kidney and gallbladder issues that needed immediate medical attention.

Reports out of Miami since Friday have all maintained that Pouncey will play against San Diego and Darlington reports that Pouncey has maintained hope that he’ll be able to be on the field. Darlington believes that thoughts of Pouncey playing are based on that hope rather than actuality, but there probably won’t be any official word until the Dolphins release their list of inactive players later on Sunday.

The Dolphins promoted center Sam Brenner from the practice squad on Saturday to give them more depth on their ravaged offensive line.

UPDATE 10:07 a.m. ET: Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Pouncey will not play on Sunday.

    What happened to that offensive line? Oh right.

    You don’t go from the hospital to NFL lineman in 2 days.

    What do you get when you take the worst offensive line in the NFL and take away their 3 best starters? Should be interesting.

    He’s not his brother.

    I really wish the Dolphins offensive line was facing the Jets defensive line today. Now that would be entertainment.

    Ask Tampa. They were without both guards for a long time. Don’t think Nicks is back yet.

    Tannehill doesn’t get enough credit for what he is doing behind this terrible O-line. I can only imagine how he would be playing if he had some decent blocking.

    Rest Tannehill and put a schlub in at QB… tank the rest of the season and get a big LT in draft. This is ridiculous at this rate our entire draft board will be o-linemen

    If he had a gallbladder attack he could be just fine 2 days later, take it from someone who had 2 gallbladder attacks in 14 days and went to the ER 2 times. Literally pain free until you eat the wrong greasy food. Now if it’s the kidneys that’s a different story. Had the gallbladder removed after the 3rd attack.

    Could be stress related. A Grand Jury may do that to you..

    Sounds like someone needs to toughen him up. Send in Incognito.
