With four new starters, the Miami Dolphins offensive line would have been under the microscope this season considering the struggles they went through as a unit during the 2013 season. But new reports indicate that it may in fact be five new starters for the offensive line due to an injury of a former Pro Bowler.
According to a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the lone returning starter from last year, Pro Bowl center Mike Pouncey, will miss three months due to hip surgery.
Dolphins Pro-Bowl C Mike Pouncey underwent hip surgery today and is expected to miss at least three months, per ESPN sources.
