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.”
“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.
