PHILADELPHIA -- Miami Dolphins coach Adam Gase said Tuesday that center Mike Pouncey will start Thursday’s preseason game against the Eagles. It will be Pouncey’s first and perhaps only game action of the preseason and his first game since last November.
The Miami Dolphins and Philadelphia Eagles are going to spend the week together, practicing for a couple of days before culminating the week with a preseason game Thursday night. And that makes sense because these two teams work well together.
A lot has been made about the Miami Dolphins bringing in big-name (meaning recognizable) middle linebacker options in recent days to fill the vacancy created by rookie Raekwon McMillan’s season-ending knee injury.
This night was memorable only in that the Miami Dolphins, beset by terrible and significant injuries the past two weeks, survived without losing anyone who is going to figure prominently in the team’s future. Indeed, Adam Gase’s team didn’t lose anyone, period, which one hopes turns into something of a trend the remainder of this preseason.
