The Dolphins shuffled their starting offensive line for their second preseason game and they’ll have to do it again for the final two exhibition contests.
The shuffling may extend to the regular season as well. Center Mike Pouncey hurt his left hip in their Friday night game against the Cowboys and coach Adam Gase said on Sunday that Pouncey will not play again in the preseason. Gase added that the injury could also keep Pouncey out for the start of the regular season.
Pouncey had surgery on his right hip this offseason, but had not been limited during training camp as a result of that issue. Any extended absence in the regular season would be a blow to the Dolphins’ hopes of having a stronger offensive line this season.
Miami moved Laremy Tunsil and Jermon Bushrod into the starting lineup at left and right guard for the Dallas game. They may be flanking Anthony Steen, currently listed as the No. 2 center on the depth chart, if they remain in the lineup for the Dolphins.
