The Miami Dolphins have been dealing with plenty of issues along their offensive line. With starting offensive tackle Jonathan Martin leaving the team and starting guard Richie Incognito suspended as a result of an alleged harassment, the team’s offensive line has been in shambles and quarterback Ryan Tannehill has been paying the price as a result.
Now, starting center Mike Pouncey adds to the problems.
Pouncey missed a previous game due to illness, and now he has been ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers.
From Armondo Salguero of the Miami Herald:
Dolphins C Mike Pouncey, doubtful for Sunday’s game, is not playing, per source. No surprise.

The Panthers have been on a roll recently with big wins over the San Francisco 49ers and New England Patriots, so the Dolphins were going to need all of the help they need in order to get the upset win.
Unfortunately for the Dolphins, their offensive line woes will likely continue against the stout Panthers defense.
