The Splash Zone 12/14/16: Mike Pouncey Sent To IR; T.J. Yates Signed

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.

The Dolphins made a pretty big roster move yesterday by sending Pro-Bowl center Mike Pouncey to injured reserve. The Dolphins and Pouncey were hopeful that he could return but things did not work out. Pouncey has been dealing with a hip injury all season long and the team felt that if he played, he's just make the injury worse. The team wanted to play it safe so Pouncey could be ready for next offseason without any setbacks. The team signed T.J. Yates to fill the open roster spot. He will backup Matt Moore.

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