MRI coming on Mike Pouncey’s knee

The aftermath of Saturday night’s preseason game in Miami includes another injury to one of the Pouncey twins.

Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey broke an ankle last week against the Packers; Dolphins center Mike Pouncey emerged from a contest against the Falcons with his left knee in a brace.

Via Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, Pouncey will have an MRI in the morning. However, he says he’s “not too worried about it.”

Here’s a big reason for him to not be worried: In April, the team extended his contract, giving him plenty of financial security in the event of a potentially serious injury. Absent the extension, he would have been in a contract year.

  1. Our OL can not afford to lose him for ANY missed games this season. OL is already a big question mark until Albert comes back.

  2. They’ll need him in week one when the ferocious REDSKIN pass rush shuts down that Dolphin offense! Hail to the Redskins…..mohawk native pride!

    It’s Mohawk you sleazy dirtbag lowlife RACIST WASHINGTON Scumbag,

  4. Dolphins are losers. Pouncey is a bully who is always hurt, maybe out for the year. Dolphins look like 3rd place in the East, just above the Jet’s.

  5. Pouncey walked off the field and will be fine. Tannehill has a right be mad because the Offense wasn’t perfect and as they have been all Pre-Season. This time they only “scored enough to Win”. In the meantime, the Starting Defense has not allowed a single TD. Yeah, sounds like no reason for optimism here.

  6. Dolphins can be very good this year, the playoffs are the least we can hope for but it will all be down to how good our 2nd and 3rd stringers are. No team has their starters available every game. For the first time in years I am very optimistic but I do have some worries about the O line and Tannehill’s tendency to hold on to the ball to long. Keep the O line healthy and we have a shot but we know that’s not going to happen so it’s going to be down to the backups and that’s a concern.
