Mike Pouncey worried about future after a Cowboys “pile-jumper” got him

Dolphins center Mike Pouncey doesn’t know who got him. But he knows where the guy works.

Via Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald, Pouncey minced no words about the hip injury which cost him the first four weeks of the regular season.

Some pile-jumper from the Dallas Cowboys jumped on me,” Pouncey said. “He fell on top of me.”

And while returning to practice Tuesday for the first time since the fracture in his hip in that Aug. 19 preseason game, Pouncey admitted there were moments after the injury in which he wondered about his future.

“Talking to the doctors, all the what-ifs came into play,” Pouncey said. “You start questioning how long you can play in the league and how physical this game is. I’m fortunate to be as fast as I am.

“When I first injured this hip there was a lot of doubt in my mind — would I ever come back and be the same player? I guess we’ll see today.”

Whether he finds out on the field Sunday against the Titans remains to be seen, and Pouncey said that decision is ultimately up to coach Adam Gase. Anthony Steen has been starting for the Dolphins, who rank 29th in the league in rushing.

    If you are so worried about it, you should probably go ahead and retire now. Just to ease your troubled mind.

    He’s a starting center in the NFL right?

    Anyone giving Pouncey grief for injury concerns needs to check themselves. This is a brutal game, and you would have to be some kind of a cyborg not to at least be giving some thought to the career implications of some of these injuries. He’s just honest enough to talk about it.

    Isn’t this the same tough guy who with his close pal Richie Incognito bullied Jonathan Martin?

    I’m trying to see the point of this story, he got hurt, missed 4 games…….so…someone piled on top of you, you play the O-line…it happens. Its not like he missed the whole season!

    This was only made a story, because it was someone on the Cowboys, who piled on him…smh…Could the bias be more obvious on this site?????

    Somewhere, Mike Sullivan is complaining about how un-manly those pile-jumpers are.
