Mike Pouncey misses practice with “minor medical issue”


The Dolphins are rapidly approaching ridiculousness when it comes to their shortage of offensive linemen.

But it appears the latest bump in the road is a small one.

Per multiple reports, center Mike Pouncey was missing from the portion of practice open to reporters. But while there’s been no official word, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports Pouncey is attending to a “minor medical issue” and is not expected to miss Sunday’s game.

The Dolphins were already down a pair of starters due to this Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin thing (perhaps you’ve heard of it), and lost backup tackle Will Yeatman to a torn ACL earlier this week.

Of course, the Dolphins weren’t exactly operating at a high level before all the extracurricular fun started, but at least it doesn’t appear they’ll have to be without their center.
