Miami Dolphins rookie center Mike Pouncey left Sunday's game against the New York Giants with an apparent neck injury.  

With Pouncey out of the game, his position was filled by Nate Garner, who had started the game at left guard, and backup tackle Ryan Cook.

Monday, the Dolphins received the MRI results for Pouncey's injury, according to a report from ProFootballTalk.com.  The tests showed no damage to Pouncey's neck, but he will be monitored over the next few days by doctors.

His availability for the Dolphins Week 9 game at the Kansas City Chiefs has not been determined.
