Pouncey out for 3 months

Recommended Posts

Tore his labrum during OTAs? That's rough.

 

 

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Dolphins C Mike Pouncey will be out "at least" three months after undergoing hip surgery on Monday.

Per Schefter, Pouncey tore his labrum "sometime during OTA sessions." It's a huge blow to Miami's perennially shaky offensive line, which now figures to turn to second-year UDFA Sam Brenner at pivot, with Dallas Thomas and Shelley Smith at the guard spots. Pouncey graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 13 center last season, although he earned negative marks as a run blocker. He was at his best in pass protection. Still, losing a rock-solid center is always a big blow to an offense. The Fins may have to explore the free agent center market, where Fernando Velasco, David Baas, and Dan Koppen are the top names available.

Baby Crusher just went through that.  Brutal. Took 14 months to get 100%.

I was thinking 3 months was a pretty misleading timeframe.

 

 

Depends on what level and the amount of anchors to secure it.  If its a partial tear top or bottom needing one or two anchors three months is quick but possible.  baby Crushers was 180 degree complete tear and needed 5 anchors.  If its like that he will not be back this season. Trust me.  Yet any normal person with RG III's injury would have never got back with a brace doing anything last year.  NFL players are on a different level.

Yes. The get paid to rehab.  Still tuff one to come back quick.  Labrum has no circulation to it.  Very tuff to heal.

I am sure it is. Hope your kid hasnt had any setbacks

9 months rehab 3 days a week, 2 months rehab 2 dayts a week, 2 months rehab 1 day a week.  Limited weight training withh no over the head movements for a month.  Just got back to do everything starting this month.  Should be cleared for contact by end of week.  On top of that he has the healing juju of a 17 year old kid,.  He odes look 100% though.  But it took 14 months of practically constant work.  Its not joke.  He would have been better off breaking his humerous in half, 

 

Thank you for the well wishes.

Excellent point and very true.

Hopefully Baby Crusher is doing well!

this is terrible news for the FINS ol. With Pouncey (and all the new additions) they are a solid mid tier group (like 16 out of 32). Without him they are in the basement (again). im obviously not a doctor but 3 months seems REALLY optimistic. Could be a PUP stay.
