Mike Pouncey, questionable for today's game against the Chargers, is not playing, according to a source close to the Dolphins center.
So with Mike Pouncey out, the Miami offensive line will now be down three starters from opening day -- Pouncey, Richie Incognito, and Jonathan Martin. The Dolphins also put backup OT Will Yeatman on IR this week when he blew out a knee in practice Wednesday.
Pouncey was Miami's best lineman.
What a mess.
The Dolphins may move Nate Garner over to center from the left guard spot and use Danny Watkins at left guard.
This season has become something of a nightmare, folks. And as I'm familiar with nightmare Dolphins seasons, the script is often this:
1. Problems with coaching/personnel.
3. Off field issues (i.e. coach mutiny, player mutiny, discord among staff). This year it's the harassment scandal.
4. Ownership steps in to assure everyone everything is alright or will be alright -- which means things are falling apart.
5. Injuries mount.
6. More losses.
We are in the more injuries stage. Expect more losses.
And that leads me to this: I've already written the Dolphins need to clean house.
