Dolphins Dope/Center Mike Pouncey Undergoes Hip Surgery, Now Out Three Months

Late yesterday afternoon, Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that Miami Dolphins dope with hugely questionable judgment center Mike Pouncey underwent hip surgery and would be out at least three months.

It came as a jarring gut punch given that the injury now ensures five new starters will make up next year's offensive line, and despite Schefter's initial report, it really could end up worse.

Since training camp hasn't opened, Pouncey will be eligible to open camp on the active/PUP list, something that would cost him the first six games. It's not out of the question -- the Dolphins bye comes in week four, so he'd end up missing the first five games anyway.

All of which led to -- of course -- a mix of anger and defeated sadness from Fins fans.
