DAVIE, Fla. -- A person familiar with Miami Dolphins center Mike Pouncey's status told The Associated Press that medical tests show no damage to the rookie's neck, and he might be able to return to practice this week.
The person spoke to The AP on condition of anonymity Monday because the Dolphins hadn't commented on the test results.
Pouncey left Sunday's game against the New York Giants during the second half with a neck injury after taking a blow to the head. Pouncey said he briefly couldn't feel his legs, but that he felt fine after the game.
With Pouncey out, the Dolphins gave up four sacks in the fourth quarter, blew a late lead and lost to fall to 0-7. They next play Sunday at Kansas City.
