The Splash Zone 11/19/16: Previewing Sunday's Matchup Against The Rams

Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours.

Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

The Dolphins are expected to be missing their starting center Mike Pouncey on Sunday. The center reinjured his hip, the same injury that caused him to miss the beginning of the season. The Dolphins are already without Branden Albert and with the loss of Pouncey this game just got a little tougher. Though I was impressed by Anthony Steen during his time at center, hopefully he can play some more solid football.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day's round-up below.
