The Other Pouncey Underwent Hip Surgery Monday

A Pouncey twin had surgery Monday and thankfully it wasn’t the one that plays for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Miami Dolphins center Mike Pouncey underwent hip surgery Monday and is expected to miss at least three months.

By the sound of things, Pouncey will start Dolphins training camp off on the Active PUP list and will miss the first few weeks of the 2014 season.

With Pouncey sidelined, Schefter reports that the Dolphins offensive line will open the 2014 season with five brand-new opening-day starters. Ouch!

Last year, the Steelers lost starting center Maurkice Pouncey eight plays into the season opener to a serious knee injury. He is now back practicing fully again and received a contract extension just a few weeks ago.

    i was hoping i would of read why he needed it since they are brothers if both would end up with this ….or was it a injury unrelated to being brothers.

    It’s probably karma from wearing the Free Hernandez hats! Our Pouncey took his last year with Decastros dive!

    Pouncey tore the labrum in his hip sometime during the Dolphins’ OTA sessions.

    Five new o-line starters?! Looks like Miami’s got a good chance to pick first next year.

    thank you ..thats good news then ..but it isnt as far as his brothers would think then with all the turning and twisting a center does hes going to be out alot longer then they might think

    A lot of things can be overcome in this sport with good coaching. But this is not one of them. Lines take time to gel. Starting at ground zero in TC and trying to put a good product on the field is a dangerous proposition.
