The Splash Zone 8/23/16: Mike Pouncey's Replacement Has Never Played A Regular Season Snap

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.

All eyes are on Anthony Steen now as he will be the Dolphins starting center on Thursday night. Pouncey is going to miss the rest of the preseason and possibly Week 1. The Dolphins viewed Steen more as a center than a guard and thought the team was joking when they told him that. Fast forward to now and his versatility has earned him a starting spot. Steen has very minimal work at center, which he played a little bit at Alabama. I'm rooting for him and hope he does well.

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