We know Mike Pouncey had surgery, because he said so on the Dolphins’ in-house television show.

We just don’t know what he had surgery to fix.

According to Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald, Pouncey’s procedure is not believed to be one to fix the foot injury that kept him out of the final two games of the regular season and the Pro Bowl.

“It was so tough when I turned down the [invitation],” Pouncey said. “When I turned it down, none of my guys had made the Pro Bowl yet. It was a tough decision for me, but I’m glad I did it. It put me a month and a half ahead of my rehab [after] surgery. It’s been going really well. I’m glad I turned it down, so I could be ready by the time OTAs get here. I’m feeling really good.”

The Week 15 foot injury was thought to be minor, though he didn’t play again the rest of the year and skipped the all-star game. He said at the time it wouldn’t require surgery. He missed the start of the 2014 season with a hip injury that cost him a month.

Pouncey offered no details, other than to say he was “a month out of surgery.”

So either the injury turned out to be worse than he thought, or he was getting something else fixed that had been bothering him, something serious enough to skip a trip to Hawaii he really wanted to take.

    Hopefully they were in there fixing his brain, to help prevent him from being a dumbass in the future

    Hmm, a player underplaying his injuries… Meanwhile, they should come up with an alternative to the Pro Bowl. I know! – the Alternatives Bowl! With a special half-time performance by: any old tribute band that can be bothered to go! And Goodell could preside over it, as an alternative to a real Commissioner.

    In 5 seasons this guy once wore a cap so this makes him a terrible person.

    Best that he got it taken care of. Sounds like he’ll be ready for OTA’s, and with a new HC everyone needs to be ready to go early on.

    “Pouncey offered no details, other than to say he was “a month out of surgery.””

    He also stated that by skipping the pro bowl he got a month jump on rehab.

    Looks like he finally got that surgery to remove his head from his rectum. Good for him, I hope it doesn’t revert.

    Honestly, Who Cares… he had no right being selected to the Pro-Bowl anyway! This coming from a diehard Dolphins Fan. Rashad Jones should have been and maybe Jarvis Landry. Both were robbed and alternates.

    Mike Pouncey’s bullying goes undiscussed but does change the fact he was part of the situation which Martin

    ^ Those guys were asked to do so. RI went overboard with it and did other stuff out in public.
