Rank Among Leaders
Sam Brenner carted off
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(7/29/14) Dolphins backup center Sam Brenner went down during an 11-on-11 drill Tuesday and was carted off the field with his right shoe removed, reports the South Florida Sun Sentinel. Brenner started four games as a rookie last year after going undrafted out of Utah.
Dolphins try to replace Mike Pouncey
|by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(6/24/14) The Dolphins don't have many options to replace center Mike Pouncey, who is out for start of the season because of hip surgery, reports ESPN. He is expected to miss the next three to four months, which includes all of training camp, the preseason and the start of the regular season.
The report says the Dolphins have three options at this stage. They can go with undrafted second-year player Sam Brenner, who received second-team reps at center this offseason and filled in at guard last season for the suspended Richie Incognito. They can use versatile backup Nate Garner, who also played center last season in place of Pouncey for two games and could be the second in-house plan. The third option is to look for outside help via trade or free agency, which could be slim pickings at this stage of the offseason.
Whatever choice Miami makes, it's replacement plan won't be nearly as good as Pouncey. He is one of the top centers in the NFL and the drop off will be significant no matter who plays in Week 1.
