The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports Dolphins C Mike Pouncey is done for the season after suffering a foot injury Week 15 against the Chargers.

Pouncey left the stadium with his left foot in a boot. LT Branden Albert suffered a knee injury against San Diego, but he is expected to be "fine." Rookie G Jamil Douglas took over at center after Pouncey left, but Miami will likely add help for the final two weeks. This season cannot end quickly enough for the Dolphins.

Dolphins C Mike Pouncey was carted off the field with a left ankle/foot injury in the third quarter of Sunday's Week 15 game at San Diego.

Dolphins interim coach Dan Campbell called C Mike Pouncey (foot) "day to day."

It suggests Pouncey's foot injury is not as severe as it looked when he was carted off the field in the first quarter Sunday. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports it is a minor foot sprain. Pouncey may be able to play this week.

Dolphins C Mike Pouncey was forced from Saturday's third preseason game with a knee injury.

Updating a previous item, Dolphins C Mike Pouncey's five-year extension is worth $45 million.

The deal makes Pouncey the NFL's highest paid center, bypassing Raiders C Rodney Hudson. Pouncey got $22 million guaranteed with a $5 million signing bonus. With Pouncey's $7.438 million 2015 salary added to his $45 million extension, he's now signed through 2020 at a total value of $52.438 million over six years. A two-time Pro Bowler (2013, 2014), Pouncey turns 26 this July.

Dolphins C Mike Pouncey's contract extension is worth $52.15 million over five years with $22 million guaranteed and an $11 million signing bonus.

The contract makes Pouncey the league's highest-paid center. Pouncey struggled at right guard last season after missing the first four games recovering from offseason hip surgery. He had been one of the better centers in the league through his first three years, however, and is just entering his age-26 season. Pouncey still has room to grow, and should be a foundational piece of the Dolphins' line for years to come.
Sat, Apr 11, 2015 10:50:00 AM

Dolphins signed C Mike Pouncey to a contract extension.

The deal is expected to make Pouncey the league's highest paid center. Despite coming off a down year, Pouncey is a building block for Miami's offensive line. He's still just 25 and has Pro Bowl appearances in two of his first four seasons. With Pouncey locked up, the Dolphins could turn their attention to an extension for Ryan Tannehill.

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports the Dolphins are finalizing an extension with C Mike Pouncey.

The deal is expected to be in the range of Maurkice Pouncey's five-year, $44 million contract with the Steelers, with between $20-25M guaranteed. Miami wanted to extend Pouncey last offseason, but off-field concerns forced the Dolphins to pick up his 2015 option. Pouncey should be paid as one of the top centers in the league.
Fri, Apr 10, 2015 04:58:00 PM

Mike Pouncey will move back to center for the Dolphins in 2015.

Returning from offseason hip surgery, Pouncey volunteered to play right guard last season in order to let Samson Satele continue to handle the center spot. Miami has received extremely poor guard play in recent seasons, but Pouncey is going back to the pivot spot with Satele now a free agent. Pouncey should have a much better year at his natural position as one of the top centers in the league.
Sun, Mar 22, 2015 10:36:00 AM

The Miami Herald expects the Dolphins to extend Mike Pouncey this offseason.

After offseason hip surgery, Pouncey returned to start 12 games at right guard last season, grading out negatively in both pass protection and run blocking. Pouncey, 25, remains a building block despite coming off a down year. With Samson Satele a free agent, Pouncey should move back to center in 2015.
Sat, Jan 31, 2015 07:49:00 PM

Mike Pouncey has informed the Dolphins he wants to return to center in 2015.

Pouncey has been selfless this season moving to right guard in order for the Dolphins to get their best five linemen on the field. Samson Satele has been playing center with Daryn Colledge at left guard. Satele and Colledge are on one-year deals. Shelley Smith was signed to a two-year, $5.5 million contract in March to play guard, but has been a flop and is expected to be released in the spring.
