Mike Pouncey injury sends Pro Bowl center to locker room

An apparent leg injury has sent the Miami Dolphins' starting center to the locker room.

The Miami Dolphins are having an ugly start to their Week 12 game against the New York Jets, at least in terms of injuries. Jarvis Landry, Jelani Jenkins, and Brice McCain have all been helped off or limped off the field at some point in the first quarter today, but have returned. Wide receiver Rishard Matthews, who was added to the injury report on Saturday with an illness, was crushed early in the game and was escorted back to the locker room.

Now, Pro Bowl center Mike Pouncey has been carted back to the locker room as well.

The injury is being reported as a right foot injury, with Pouncey questionable to return for the rest of the game. Rookie Jamil Douglas is expected to move to center to replace Pouncey if Miami's veteran center is unable to return.

The Jets currently have the ball and are threatening in a 0-0 game.
