According to reports, Dolphins Pro Bowl center Mike Pouncey will get to start the season on the 53-man roster as opposed to the PUP list.
Speculation was abound on social media regarding whether or not Pouncey would miss the first four or six weeks of the season depending on where he wound up, and now with the cut of tight end Evan Wilson, Pouncey has a spot on the roster and the reports are going out that he'll get to take it.
Pouncey had hip surgery on June 23, 2014 but he'd been absolutely dominating his rehab assignments all throughout training camp, showing that he had every intention of coming back stronger than ever. Once Pouncey returns, both the run blocking and pass protection stands to receive a major upgrade, further bolstering the team's chances at making the playoffs for the first time since 2008.
