The Miami Dolphins offensive line is taking another hit on Sunday, as the team gears up for their Week 11 match up against the San Diego Chargers. Not only are the Dolphins still without Jonathan Martin and Richie Incognito, but starting center Mike Pouncey will also miss the game due to an illness.

Pouncey was expected to play today, but he wasn’t ready to go in time and now the Dolphins will need to do a last minute scramble.

From ESPN’s Adam Schefter:

Pouncey was reportedly hospitalized on Friday when kidney and gallbladder issues became too much and required the attention of medical professionals.

With the injuries, suspensions and players leaving the team, the Dolphins were desperate enough for offensive line depth that they promoted center Sam Brenner from the practice squad to the active roster.

Good luck today, Ryan Tannehill.

    If the fins lose this one , the season is not about playoffs anymore,,,,,, Draft position for the new front office staff. I will always be a dolphin fan because I think bandwagoneers are pieces of sh*t.
