Pouncey Out for Season
Tuesday, Dec. 13
The Dolphins announced they had placed Pouncey on injured reserve, signing quarterback T.J. Yates to take his place on the roster.
Earlier Tuesday, the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero first reported the roster move:
It is feared that if the Dolphins let Pouncey play now or at any point the remainder of this year, he might further damage the hip that has already undergone surgery once and flared up again during a practice in San Diego a month ago. Pouncey has struggled with hip injuries recently and has had surgery on both the left and right hip.
The Dolphins are hopeful that if Pouncey continues his current course to recovery without any setbacks, the current injury would not become a career-threatening issue. So Pouncey will be free to return in 2017.

Pouncey Is Vital Member of Dolphins O-Line
The center missed the first four games of the year because of the ailment, which makes the latest issue concerning. However, head coach Adam Gase doesn't believe the injury to be career-threatening.
The 2011 first-round pick has started every game of his career when he's been in the lineup, being named to three Pro Bowls in the last three seasons.
Anthony Steen, who started three games for the Dolphins earlier in the year, returned to the starting lineup at center with Pouncey is unavailable.
