    Reports say "at least" 3 months he'll be out, which means he's not expected back by the Week 1 game.

    I'm guessing the opening day starter at center will end up being Sam Brenner. I don't think as highly of the UDFA Larsen as some here do. Not that I think that highly of Brenner either but they liked him enough that they bypassed Dallas Thomas and put Brenner out at left guard as a rookie in 2013 so that's a pretty positive sign as far as what they think of him.

    Any idea on when this injury occurred? He's getting bashed on twitter by people saying he's selfish for waiting until June to have it done.

    I think you should probably operate under the assumption he did something stupid until further notice.

    The "offseason program" could mean anywhere from February to last weekend.

    Albert Breers says his understanding is the hip labrum was bothering him throughout the spring and he decided to get it taken care of, for long-term stability.

    Translation?

    No new contract, I'm not playing through this.

    Andrew Abramson reporting that the team felt the injury was "not serious" and thought he was fine during the recent mini-camp.

    Evidently, Pouncey disagreed and he may now need to start the season the Physically Unable to Perform list, which means he would have to sit out at least until Week 7.

    Translation: C-O-N-T-R-A-C-T

    Regardless if that's a correct translation or not... I'm glad he's getting it taken care of. We need to make sure he's good long term, and sacrificing long term stability in his hip for a few extra games this season would be shortsighted and foolish. He's an important piece for our long term future... and we need to make sure he's right. Otherwise it'd be Jake Long all over again...

    He's becoming more trouble than he's worth if speculation is true. Not interested in giving him 10 mil/year, but we need him back asap for 2014.

    The team thought he was fine while sitting him out of practices?

    Well that sucks. Then again, I don't exactly hope we keep Pouncey either.

    Anyone remember good news, or nationally positive reception this team has gotten in the past 6 months? Anything since the Patriots win?

    No evidence to say this, but I think this spells the beginning of the end of Pouncey's stay in Miami.

    First game was very likely an L anyway, Pats haven't lost a season opener in like a decade.

    but if Pouncey's on the PUP list come the season, that would really suck.

    Well, there goes a little more hope our line will be vastly improved over last year (it still can ... but it's less likely, at least the beginning).

    So, moving forward:

    Center Options include:

    1. Brenner

    2. Larsen (short arms; rookie; inexperienced)

    3. Shelley Smith (who was used at Center several times in the recent practices - if Billy Turner came on, that could further precipitate a move of Smith to Center).

    4. Signing another player - Those listed as free agents in Sun Sent: Satele (Colts); Kyle Cook (Bengals); Velasco (Steelers); Gandy (Lions).

    5. Trade.

    - I could see us making a pre-training camp trade or signing one of these guys above to a small one-year deal. Would love to land new center and let Pouncey go. Great talent but such sketchy person.

    Love your optimism, Travis. Wish I could get there. Until we aren't coached by a buffoon, I have little hope. With or without Pouncey I expect this season to be rough.

    I just hope injuries don't give Philbin another get out of jail free card.

    Who am I kidding? Ross will probably keep him through his deal next year anyways with Hickey...

    Guess Pouncey is this seasons Incognito. Headache/problem child especially with the fan base. It was always on the cards. Recent history and this timing.= bad combination.

    after you call out Pouncey as this year's incognito? Pouncey is out because of an injury, not because he's a moron.

    Really? I beg to differ. Pouncey is becoming this coming seasons No1 topic and not for the right reasons. Saying we were automatically going to lose against the Pats? Love your positive, almost crystal ball type predictions. Its no wonder we have this deep fascination and unwarranted scared mentality with the Patriots.
