Dolphins C Mike Pouncey to practice Monday, be ready for Week 1

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

The Miami Dolphins were given a huge scare on their offensive line when center Mike Pouncey left Saturday's game with a knee injury. The severity of the injury was unknown when it first happened, but he had an MRI on Sunday.

Fortunately, the MRI came back negative and he'll be able to return to practice on Monday. More importantly, he's expected to be ready for Week 1 of the regular season.

Pouncey is the steadiest and most reliable player on a shaky offensive line. Both guard spots feature unproven players, while left tackle Branden Albert likely won't be ready for Week 1.

If the Dolphins were to lose Pouncey, both the running game and passing game would be greatly impacted.
