The Splash Zone 7/27/17: Mike Pouncey Cleared To Practice

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.

Mike Pouncey will not begin training camp on the PUP list as he was cleared to practice by the team and his doctor. But the team should still be careful with their prized center. Adam Gase has stated he does not need to see anything from Pouncey, so don’t expect to see a lot of, if any (maybe 1 or 2 drives), Pouncey in the preseason. Nick Mangold is still available and would be a great backup to have if something were to happen to Pouncey during training camp.

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