Pouncey to miss second consecutive game

Mike Pouncey, who missed last week's game against San Diego, will miss his second consecutive game on Sunday. Pouncey will not play against the Carolina Panthers, per a source.

Pouncey, who was listed as doubtful for the game, will likely be replaced by Nate Garner as he was last week.

It is likely rookie Sam Brenner, who moved into the starting lineup last week when Garner moved from left guard to center, will once again be called upon on Sunday. Danny Watkins is also expected to get snaps.

Pouncey missing this game is not a big surprise. He did not practice during the past week despite rejoining the Dolphins after suffering an illness that started with food poisoning.
