Mike Pouncey now expected to miss half the season
by Larry Hartstein |

Initial reports suggested Dolphins center Mike Pouncey might return from the torn labrum in his hip in late September. The Miami Herald reports that's unrealistic. A source tells the paper Pouncey likely will miss the season's first eight weeks, which covers seven games and a bye.

It's bad news for quarterback Ryan Tannehill and the entire offense.

Ryan Tannehill entering crucial season
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

This is a big season coming up for Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill, reports ESPN.

The report says the "kid gloves are off and this a crucial third year for the former first-round pick. Is Tannehill a franchise building block or just another average quarterback? He's shown reasons to make a case for both sides. But the Dolphins are standing behind Tannehill for at least one more season to see if he can improve on his 15-17 career record."

This year Tannehill must prove he can lead the Dolphins to the playoffs. And he must do so while learning a new offense for the first time in his career. If he struggles, the team could look at finding a new quarterback for next season.

Mike Wallace: I might return kickoffs
by Larry Hartstein |

Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace, who struggled to connect with Ryan Tannehill last year, told Sky Sports he's willing to try anything to make his presence felt.

"I might get back there for kickoff returns," Wallace said. "I just want to be on the field making an impact for my team. I've always wanted to return kicks ever since I've been in the NFL."

Wallace returned kicks in the preseason when he was a Steeler, but there'e been no indication Miami will use him that way in the preseason or regular season, according to "At this point of my career, I just want to get the ball in my hands and make some plays," Wallace said.

Dallas Thomas eyes starting job
by Larry Hartstein |

Dolphins coach Joe Philbin named Dallas Thomas one of the team's most improved players, and he has a good chance to start at left guard, according to the team's website. A third-round pick in last year's draft, Thomas played only four offensive snaps last season.

Thomas worked with the first team during spring drills and is much further along than he was in 2013. He stayed in South Florida throughout the offseason to get better prepared.

"You’ve got to know your material, you’ve got to know what you’re doing on the field because stuff happens so fast," Thomas said. "You’ve got to be able to just react to it and not even think about what’s happening on the field."
