Mike Pouncey hoping to play by the end of the month

The Dolphins offered some hope for a quick return by Mike Pouncey when they kept him on the active roster instead of putting him on physically unable to perform.

But while he’s still unable to practice following hip surgery, he said he’s getting close, and hopes to play when the Dolphins go to London on Sept. 28.

I’m very close; I feel great,” Pouncey said, via Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald. “When this process started, I was just wondering how long it was going to take. Now that we’re here, it feels great. I really don’t know how long it’s going to take to get back on the football field, but as I feel right now, I feel like I could play.”

And when he’s well enough to play, he’s apparently clear to. While commissioner Roger Goodell said Pouncey had to undergo an evaluation by a medical professional in the wake of last year’s bullying scandal, the Herald’s reporting he has satisfied all the requirements from the league.

“Oh, very grateful,” Pouncey said, when asked of that decision. “Any time you have to face stuff like that, you hope for the best. Obviously, it worked out the best for us.”

Well, not all of them, as Jonathan Martin switched coasts and Richie Incognito still can’t find a job. But if we means him, then yes.

    Especially best for him, considering he faced no repercussions/accountability for his actions

    And he should have no repercussions for what went on with Martin, the whole thing was that Martin was a guy who had no business in the NFL as a starter, back up was where he belong, should not have been drafted so high, the Dolphins coaches screw him and he could not handle the pressure. Bill

    Actually, I’d suggest that it worked out best for Jonathan Martin considering he essentially orchestrated this whole thing.

    Jonathan Martin is the one who stormed out of a team lunch over a prank that even a middle school kid wouldn’t be effected from. Jonathan Martin is the one who cried “bullying”, garnering undeserved sympathy. Jonathan Martin is the one who exaggerated the way he was treated. Jonathan Martin is the one who lied about the fact that he was involved in said “bullying” practices. Jonathan Martin is the one who got paid to do absolutely nothing but devise a plan with his scumbag parents and lawyers to try and make more money. Jonathan Martin is the one who ruined Incognito’s career because he himself was mentally weak and didn’t have the guts to stand up to Richie. Jonathan Martin is the one who nearly ended Joe Philbin’s tenure as head coach less than two seasons into the job.

    Jonathan Martin did all this. Jonathan Martin got what he wanted by being a coward. Martin gets to go to a team where he will be coddled by his head coach. He gets to be paid to do next to nothing. Don’t try and tell me that Jonathan Martin didn’t get what he wanted. He got EXACTLY what he wanted. He took a cowardly route to continue to make money and play for another team. What a great sport he is.

    But please, continue this sweet little narrative that poor Jonathan Martin was bullied. It’s cute.

    He’s likely referring to his present teammates and himself. Of course, any opportunity to kick a dead horse is a good one, right Darin.
